Default VIDEO: Team AMSOIL #77 Super Cat rough water testing

Check out a video of the AMSOIL Skater Super Cat light testing last Thursday for the POPRA Lake Havasu Grand Prix. We were running off of Windsor Beach in high winds and it was about as rough as Havasu gets. Click through to youtube and watch in 720p or 1080p for the best viewing experience.

Ill be editing up some footage from the racing (and rain) soon! Enjoy!

Fabulous vid !!!

Do you hold back a bit when testing like that because of lack of heli support ??

Are you testing technique ? prop choice? new engine rebuild ?

Wish you a successful and safe season.

Great video. Couple of questions.

Having never boated on Havasu, does it get swells or is it just a big lake chop? Second, what are the red lights on the dash?
