no,,, you didn't really touch a nerve at all....my funny bone maybe....sorry if you took it the wrong way. and yes, my dad kicked the **** out of me when i was a boy!...

stirring the pot was a quote from river girl not i....and i think if someone was so confident that someone cheated them they would put up the money,,,,not their mouth!

so, really....not to be an ass....why do you want answers....holly smokes....i have an idea,,,,i know how you can get an answer....you front the money for the protest....maybe start a cheaters fund??? you keep 10% for your trouble???

i know i'm a smart ass...but i love to have fun....actually i would be the first to buy ya a drink RR!!! i hope to chat with ya at the races some day!!!!

Joe, First of all it was a quote from me Boat Girl not River Girl, we are two very different people...

Eric- Thank you for educating me on some things, and maybe helping Rico find an answer to his question...Its nice to know that just because you race APBA doesnt mean you cant be logical and resonable about SBI...Thanks for being stand up...

Rico- Unfortunetly, or fortunetly (cant spell today) SBI does not respond on OSO directly.

Me too! I'll take you up on the drink sometime. I'd love to chat and compare "war stories."

I want an answer only based on principal right now. Tread was the first person to give a reason why the SVs might have had similar lap times. My beast is retired, pleasure only (but one of the faster stock pleasure vees out there ), but even after all the time and money at Lake X, anything I can do to make her faster without screwing with the motors is way cool.

BG, as I said twice, I sent an email to SBI directly with no response.

audacity. First I want to say I was not asking the discussion board of I would be competative. I was just stating facts. Forget lap distance, gear ratios, x dimensions. A 38 ft Fountain with 500's can not run over 100 MPH. It can not run almost the same lap speed average as a Super V Fountain with 750's. The guys in Muscle are not amatures, they are very experienced "Very aggressive" racers. So that leaves out poor driving. Look at the average speeds of past races in SBI and Apba for F-2. It dosen't make sense that the SBI averages are 5 to 6 mph higher in the past race. Remember a 5 to 6 Mph "Lap Average" would have to mean 10 to 12 MPH higher in the straights. It's not likely. Didn't this whole discussion start over Factory-2 V Bottoms Outrunning Sclite Cats with the exact same power packages, in the straights in flat water? IT"S NOT POSSIBLE!

"Remember a 5 to 6 Mph "Lap Average" would have to mean 10 to 12 MPH higher in the straights"....

no it does not...like tread stated previously...a SVLT is a VERY fast boat in a corner.....you could take a faster F2 boat a spank it with a SVLT in a corner...stagered engines and a balast tank. how about not having to run through a #6??...

something eric would say......hmmmmmm.....set-up set-up set-up!

you are only stating the facts???...you say it's not possible on one hand and then you say #'s don't lie??? if an outsider was SO sure someone was cheating....why didn't they guy they beat pony up the $$$$ for the protest....seemed like a no brainer the way it was stated here in this post??? were they the only boat in the class??? who care if they were run'n sc's then??LOL mouth before $$$$,,,or $$$$ before mouth???

the only nerve that gets touched is when someone yells cheater!!!! to the guys beating them....hummmmmm....

dude by no means am i trying to be an ass....i think there is a TON of data left out of this story??? and i always keep an open mind!!!...
