My 2 cents.... I was the ONLY boat just south of the Buckman bridge. I was sitting so I could see thru the larger spans. No question PP was coming hard, fast and was way out front. By far the 1st boat I saw. Then just before the bridge PP slowed and pulled West. It seemed like a good 30 secs after PP slowed that I even saw the MTI and the others. The MTI then crossed from PP starboard to port to pass and shot thru the bridge. Just after passing thru the bridge the MTI cracked the throttle as if he was surprised to be in front or maybe for a split sec did not know where to go (idk).
This is what happened. If it is all about getting thru the bridge 1st...MTI did it. If it is about being the fastest I say it goes to PP up to the bridge. You two need to plan a real honest rematch, get more HP and let everyone know where it is going down. Id love to see it.

That is just so f*cking cool!

If the MTI is 20 seconds behind:

At 170 mph you're traveling 249 feet per second.

Subsequently, you're traveling one mile per 21 seconds. So if the MTI is 20 seconds behind, he is indeed one mile behind.

If there was only 2/10th's a mile (roughly off of your 1/8th mile) to the bridge, the MTI (20 seconds behind plus the 2/10th of a mile) would have to be doing over 1,000 mph to be the first to the bridge.

I know the MTI is fast, but that would be interesting to watch!!

HA HA that puts it in some perspective. 1000mph no problem!
