Default and a free copy of Roberts Rules of Order goes to...

Ya ever wonder why
there's an alphabet soup of sanctioning bodies
out there in motorsports land?

It's 'cause everybody doesn't want to do things
the same exact way.

Personally, I think the SBI rulebook
is written/laid out the way it is
JUST to scare away folks
that wanna complain about RULES
and the enforcement thereof.

F'rinstance, in SBI F-2,
it would appear the only IMPORTANT rule is:

To finish first, you must beat Reggie Fountain's boys.

You like this rule?
Then You race SBI.

Don't like this rule?
Find an organization with rules you like.

First I would like to say i am new to the site and I think it's great. I have been reading all of the posts regarding the SBI race and the possibility of cheating. I have been jumping back and forth from the SBI site to the APBA site and I must say it does appear there may be something going on. If you look at the average speeds of F-2 in SBI and F-2 in APBA there is a susbstancial differance actually 5 tp 6 MPH. From talking to people at both events the water was about the same. NOW HERE IS THE INTERSTING PART! Muscle Racing is a SUPER V with (Twin 1000s I believe). Invensys Fountain is a factory 2 with (twin 500's). Now there average speed is only 2 miles an hour less then the super V's. I have a hard time with this. I am dialing in my 37 Outerlimits with twin staggered 500 efi's. I am planing to start racing it in June in SBI. I promise you, If they want my boat in there circuit the first 3 boats are going to be dynoed or I will be putting up my checkbook for The $2500 to have the winners motors torn down. I did not just get done spending over $400k to get beat by racer's using questionble methods or "Bumping it up" as another member referred to in an earlier post.





SUPER V WINNER AVG.SPEED
V-2 Muscle 84.9 85.5 83.7 86.1 27.0 85.11

FACTORY 2 WINNER AVG. SPEED
F2-15 Invensys Fountain 83.2 84.6 85.2 79.4 27.0 83.08

NYspeeddemon, Outerlimits, F-2? you should have stopped in. Mike D' From Sterling was there both days. You could have gotten him to throw a few more HP in. Which engines are you getting? Where do you run the Skater? what is the name? we run a 32' classic outboard.

I wasn't at the race this past weekend. My Skater is named The Ultimate Sin. My outerLimits will be named what ever the sponsor with the most money wants it to be. I keep my boat in Jersey but do a lot of New York boating in the Summer California in the winter.

NYspeed, Good luck with the OL, I am sure that by the time you start to race it you will be one of the OSO family, and we will be cheering you on. I will watch for your first start, and then your first win. Hope to see your Skater some time this summer. If you see a 32' Skater trying to catch you, (note i said trying) stop and say hello.
