True true, and yes I think we need some videos! Nothing like seeing a very very fast Skater in action!!

[QUOTE=yeller gambler;3023329]drag race set up ???? well it is called a shootout for a reason & word on the water is your MTI has had meth inj set up for 3 seasons BIG Bills Pure Platinum is set up for whatever deck of cards is being dealt ...
and just for the record the red/silver skater had 100 gallons of fuel left to get to party cove & full ballast tanks
Lesson # 1 dont bring a KNIFE to a GUN f!ght [/QUOTE

Bill Yorkman,
I see you found a way around your ban using this new name. I appreciate your concern about my boat and how fast it runs. I did not have the meth injection at the 2007 Shootout. I installed in the spring of 2008. You love to pick on everyone else about their boat's performance. Why not enlighten us how your Skater is running with your homebuilt engines. Only thing anyone has seen of your boat is some Youtube videos of the boat buzzing pontoon boats on the tiny Illinois river.
Here is my video of the first time the boat ran with the meth injection after it was dialed in. June 2008 160mph at 6200 rpm and I had 800 rpm left. The boat was pulling hard, but I was nervous with a new setup and running on Lake Michigan expecting a ship wake at any second.

just because a boat is smaller does'nt mean its faster.the Skater is not 10' shorter, the 388 is nearly 40' and the mti is actually 44' running surface, believe that is 4' . the mti is a full race canopy, skater a pleasure, why would I be banned, these are facts

Rudy never touched his engines. He only gave FREE advise over the phone to the guys who built the engines at RHR shop. Not paid one penny.
