I mean help me out, what doe a 40 PR Skater run with 525efi's?? I am not looking for a pissing contest, just some honest answers.
size for size, weight for weight, power for power...

cats if you want to go fast, rough or smooth.

vee's if you want to cruise, rough or smooth.

OK, I can accept the facts, I just wanted some I mean you got to admit, everytime a Cat says he wooped a V, and other way around, it is NEVER a FAIR playing ground.

As for comparing race boats, Holy smokes thats a discussion that I am not going to get into. I see how racers get into it.

I gues the old saying of "How fast does it go, is relative to the size of the wallet"

NOW...let us look at how much more money you need to get that 14.5 MPH. How much is the cat MSRP compaired to the V? big price gap between V and Cat. BIG.
