Default 2009 Shootout Top Gun

David, Congratulations on your 196 mph “piston powered" Top Gun Win.

Thank you very much for your confidence in us at New Century Performance to help you throughout this project. All along, I knew, when we got through all the little glitches, we could put up a number.

Thanks to the entire Nauti-Marine crew, JT, Myrick, Clinton, Mike P., Mike F., Rodrick, & Robert Allen. Without any one of you, we would never make it.

Can’t wait to get a “sweet” tune up in the port engine like the starboard had this year and see what we can do next year.


For those questioning the start at Captain Ron’s vs. Shooters, at Shooters all the big numbers were put up with a running start. The monitoring of the start at Shooters was a judgement call by the start boat officials. Therefore no-body really knew how fast a start each boat was allowed. At Captain Ron’s the start was monitored by a radar gun to keep everyone at the 30 mph limit.

Thanks Lucky! Appreciate all of your assistance. Everything happens for a reason and I'm confident we'll learn something from this year's mechanical gremlins - just like in the past.
Look forward to seein you at LOTO this weekend.

I have watched this video a number of times. It is so impressive to see and to here to motor fire up is bad a$$!! Dave, did you have to let out of the throttle at all when the boat porpoised or did you all drive through it? The way the motors are set up can you let out of WOT and get back in it or not? Thanks for sharing the video's and knowledge.

Nice Job Lucky. It will make for a great show when they are at full strength. We sure do miss you guys on the circuit. Hopefully you guys will make KW and we can battle it out like years past.

Maybe next year we'll have the time to come out and run with you at the shootout. We've got a "set" of motors burnin' a hole in our pocket but no time to play with them.

Best

Marc
