Do you know the answer to this question? Seems only the owner would know the answer...

Beautiful boat/F650 package though!

The only proof to back up this after-the-fact claim was a photo of a GPS unit displaying 161 mph. Their lack of proof nor their lack of adherance to generally accepted rules for making a world record attempt did not stop OL from also going to the Miami show and claiming to have the fastest V bottoms in the world.

To my knowlege XXX never ran in an official kilo run - before or after this GPS incident. So the only claim XXX ever had to being the worlds fastest V was solely based on a single pic of a GPS unit. Some bought into this, many others wanted to see XXX prove it on a kilo course - which it never did to my knowlege.
Isn't that exactly the same way they posted Gino's Mercedes MTI is the worlds fastest pleasure boat? I only remember seeing a GPS photo, but they put it in the magazines, etc?

2 things...

1. OL has never proved anything in any run. They posted a pic to cause trouble and they got it later that year when Fountain ran 171 (183 2nd pass after the trap). They got their azzes handed to them.

2. Gino is the one claiming fastest powerboat, not MTI as a company, to my knowledge. With that being said, I believe Gino and his numbers.

Oh yeah, I totally believe Gino & his boats' performance stats. I was just refering to the way it was presented, which I had no problem with, but others in the past have been slammed for only having a GPS photo.

I just found it interesting that no one made anywhere NEAR as big of a deal about it, as they did with XXX/Cat Killer/Speed Racer, for not having NASA approve his runs.

Sorry to get in on the off-topic deal here, but....

I think Gino's claims have merit, albiet, they are not "official." Gino did have a video of the run showing that he held that speed for quite a distance (not just a short burst and then back it down), and the throttleman used for the run also happens to be imo the industry standard!

Kinda funny, but didn't OL win the P1 world championship last year? Against Fountain, against Cig?

They did great in P1, but that's apples and oranges in this discussion.

True, P1 is real racing, not Reggie racing.


Remember, OL would most likely have one of Fountains World Championships(2005) if not for SBI's REGGIE rules.

No way would that 47 OL not have KILLED the disintegrating CatKiller.
