What happens if you hit a lilly pad at that speed?

I am pretty sure I saw 007 go screaming by in one of those things.

I love it, the open class ones with the big pipes sound badass.

As you can clearly see, safety is a top priority for racers, pit crew members, propshaft holders and fans alike. Notice the (apparently inflatable) Lifethong vests the drivers wear.


Somewhere, someplace, a California windsurfer is saying, "Dude, this little Thai guy just totally stole my board, but left my sail. And he smelled like Castor Oil."

And finally, things in Thailand aren't all that much different than over here. As I always say, "Outboards only smell bad when they're in front of you. Which is of course where they always are!"

I am just totally impressed that Rik at Arneson has apparantly broken into the asian market. Is that the new ASD 0.5?

That is some funny chit Eddie. It's not hard to see where surface drives got their inspiration

Following a 2 cycle burning castor oil will get my blood flowing, guaranteed.

The best thing is, at the end of the day you could make a helluva margarita with one of those too.

This video is from Samut Songhram, hometown of my friend the pilot. She just came back into Vegas after a month back home in Thailand. Had dinner with her tonight and showed her the video. Right near her house there!

Thai women are some of the hottest ...
