I want pics. I'll pay to re-up just to see it. (And perhaps we can get him to race the 100mph Sting Ray.)

He doesn't write 100 mph checks on a 75mph account, does he?

It was funny. I'm sitting at a stop light and across the street I see these 2 chicks with one of those polls you use to change the sign boards. They are clueless, so I stop and help them. Wind up partying with them 'cause they wanted to "thank me" for the assitance....haha



MORE IMPORTANTLY! IS SUNDAY OR WHAT TD?

As long as my wife does not kill me for leaving for another event this weekend, I will be sure to have pics.

My guess is it has been quiet about this uncoming Sunday due to certain events that unfolded this week.

T2x did ask for them not to post being as the thread got out of hand and they are honoring his request.

I have learned that there is more to this boat that needs to be known.

Hopefully TD will have the opportunity to tell his story and I will be happy to display the photos along with it.

Obviously TD came onboard a bit harsh like so many other new members have done in the past and they got forced off the board...

I hope this doesn't happen with TD because I would like all OSO members to hear what he has to say.

I am sure his time with Al Copeland was more than interesting and many would be interested in what he had done with Al's Turbine boat.

Hopefully it can be a fresh start and hopefully he will hit the numbers he had posted. That alone would win a few members over anyway...

Presented with some tact and humility, I think most on OSO would listen to what anyone had to say.

I'm sure there are some great stories there, as well. Again, will depend on his presentation.

And that's all anyone asked him to do in the first place. No race challenges, no smack talk - just run the number and have someone there to verify it.

Looking forward to the pics and posts on Monday (or Sunday evening).

Most of all be safe TD. I'd rather have to eat a little crow on Monday and still be alive to talk about it than the alternative.

Tim, I appreciate what you are trying to do, and I'll try to listen to what you are saying, because you are well thought of by a bunch of people I know and respect in the boating Industry.....

But don't try to make poor Rich out to be a guy who just stumbled onto OSO last week, and got ate up and spit out before he learned the ropes.

He's been singing the same song for at least a year now, I went through the same bullsh!t with him last summer, until he realized I knew people who knew him, and they wouldn't back his claims up.

Where he tripped himself up this summer is after he started the same old tired bullsh!t, he caught the attention of a couple of local performance boaters.

The guys calling him out aren't in Canada or Miami this summer, they are in his own backyard.

I'm glad Rich Luhrs is going to get involved, but don't try to float the line that he'll run this weekend, then make an official run with T2x later in August.
As my Grandfather liked to say in situation's like this "Don't piss on my boots and tell me it's raining."

Trippy, run 100.01 MPH or disappear.....
