Watching the Skater V make passes, it sure looked loose and not on the rail. Not sure I'd want to be in it over 140.

So somebody needs to drop their 43 outlimits off to eddie young and order a set of those motors to be able to compare apples to apples next year!!

Nonetheless guys, thats 140+ on PUMP GAS. A very nice upgrade for those people who want a little more juice out of their 1075's on the next rebuild

Your right Downtown.......you don't. It's a handful.
On the last run, I was at 134 and pulling good when it got out of shape and I had to lift. Went all the way down to 105 to get it to settle down, then back in the gas up to 126. You can't hold it over 130 for long. The slightest little thing will upset it and you CAN"T drive through it. It will just get worse until you slow down. It's really good up to 130, but then, it's who knows.
We just had a rough weekend. Whatever could have went wrong did. I'm not making any excuses and certainly not taking anything away from Dennis and Jason Parvey. They ran their a$$ off and deserve it. They were better than us this weekend. I ran quite a bit faster than recorded but that's all part of it. I don't have any regrets. We had a blast and we will be back. Again, congrats to Dennis and Jason.

A 42 Fountain with hopped up 525's ain't that fast. The OB Sonic may be able to take it. I have been in that same 24 sonic hull going 114 (built by Performer) we actually beat Reggie in a 200 mile race (He was 2nd)
