Is this the infamous T2x- narrated video of the Warpath and banner boat that's had the clip posted here so often?

http://media.boatmad.com/gallery/v/m...che_2.wmv.html

A suggestion- put a writeup on there with runtime and a synopsis of what's on each vid.

I'm in for all 5.

I think i have watched that clip more than any other by far. Rich if you read this, and this is purely out of curiosity because i have watched it so many times, but do you remember what the mechanical "gremlins" were that took out the banner boat in that race? What a great piece of footage. . . . gotta go watch that again . . . . . gonna be a long winter. Love the enthusiasm of that clip

Not to step on Rich's answer but the gremlins were in a Bobby S post in the Apache section. He wrote that every time he hit the trim switches, the motors would lose power. He was afraid that they might quit. So, he set the drives & tabs to the midpointand hamered it.

If you want another great clip - look for the duel between Superboats - T2x has it - big water - big boats -
