Too bad they don't go very far, but they go faster in the 1/4 than most drag cars. I seen them flip, tumble, disintegrate, and turn a complete 360 and land flat, and keep on going. All I can say they are fraking nuts... lol ... and i love it.

Jeeze, every run these guys make is on the verge of disaster.

I tryed to take a picture last year at Firebird lake in AZ of the final run, when the lite turned I snapped the pic & all I got was the backside of the roostertail! BTW it is a useless gesture to set a car alarm at one of these events

Anyone know what kind of props these boats run? Always wondered about that.

Some use a 2 bladed prop that looks something like a chopper prop( round ear) or clever style while some use a 3-4 blade style that looks like a clever.. Also alot of the newer drag boats use a dual shaft/prop set up, to help the boats stay going strait...
