no, it happens at 104mph. I hear he added 50 performance vinyl stickers to the boat adding in excess of 500 additional HP and needed strength to the Alpha. He also added 200lbs to the raw weight of the boat and is now comfortably running in the mid century mark.....

SPANKING every Skater in his path....

No. I use a drive and props that were designed for the amount of power that I have instead of trying to run a Pinto transmission in a Top Fuel car.

I was going to say that this post belonged in the Technical section, but then I realized that there is no "Senseless Projects" subsection....
