Default big speed

Just found this on Youtube, I think it give a pretty good perspective on the speed of Miss GEICO, Aquamania, WHM, and Superheat. Notice the helicopter, if it were racing it would be running 5th lol

Yeah, that's definitely peeeeeeeeeaaaaaace out from the beginning. It has to feel like you're driving a solid rocket booster. It's cool that others are buying "nice" turbine cats to at least give you some comp as a result of some of AMF's machines.

Hey Scott, I assume you're the Scott from the Geico team. I love everything you guys do for racing. You guys are so professional in every area of racing. Everybody goes out and wants to beat Miss Geico, and every now and then someone does and that's all you hear about, but it's funny how they never say anything about all the races they get their butts kicked. Keep up the awesome work. Good luck in Key West. Also, I'm very sorry about the loss of your father. I lost mine 11 years ago and not a day goes by that I don't think about him. If this is not the Scott from Geico, disreguard

Along with the speed, they had the MTI dialed in perfectly. The boat appears to run at a consistent level attitude. It had to take lots of right on engineering and testing to get that cat dialed. I hope Geico continues its sponsorship for a long time. AMF is definitely giving them there money's worth. It is really impressive to see it run in person.......Eric
