The facts just like your Fountain friend. Look at the percentage of 120+ mph boats that come out of each factory. I guarantee you more come out of Outerlimits and pleasure boats at that.

They arent "hopped up" 525's anymore....lets just say they are a lil bigger now.

And I dont care if that Sonic did 300mph....its a Sonic.

Ok, thanku! That was a beautiful boat... I was hoping they were going to talk to him and show his boat at the docks after the run, but they never did.. The broadcast should start doing things like that next year.!

Damn TRL, real classy. I have some buddies that have some real nice Sonics. Sonic made a real nice boat.

Congrats To The Outerlimits Crew, 140 In A Mile Is Fast. But Facts Are Facts Until Someone Breaks 177 Mph. The Kilo Boat Went 184 In Testing After The Kilo Run With Only 1500 Hp Sterling's. The New 43 Real Fast Powerboat With The New Merc 1350s Turned Up Will Be The First 200 Mph Vee Bottom.

Geez...congrats to the OL team they ran STRONG! this weekend; and Eddies boat is bad azz; a 1 mile speed run is what it is...not the end all for sure; heck there was a pontoon boat that posted 107 - but I sure wouldn't want to run that offshore...and for those who haven't tried it; 1 mile happens in a hurry.

Were Very Busy, I Have No Doubt In My Mind That The Outerlimits Is Capable Of Running That Fast. Hell I Would Love To Run It With Mike.

I have to say that until the Rio Roses runs up against the Outerlimits XXX Side by side it's not settled.
