Reggie had a 36' Skater (with the Fountain name the side) running with a fleet of 40+ ft. cats a number of years ago......

What happened to the cat killer in this vid at 23 seconds?
Is it just hitting the rev limiter or did a drive blow causing the engine to rev?

Sounded like he lifted at that point and it popped back in the pipes. It happens with the short pipes they are running.
