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.

Thanks Eddie! We've been coming to the event since the early 90's and have quite a bit of time figuring how to get good readings on radar. We were pleased with our 129 on radar, but we wanted more of course

Looking forward to seeing Bruce's new boat next year. Talk to you soon.

Now thats a class. Something that seems to be missing from the kindergarten king of the hill,my huffy's better than your schwinn crowd. It doesn't matter if its a 16' bayliner or a turbine powered mystic... If your boat puts a smile on your face, you win.

Why are you telling me this? I don't care what a SV43 with stock 1075's runs.

I know a SV with 1200's runs 139/140 mph according to the radar at LOTO. Still the fastest V at the shootout and that is what matters most. King of V's at LOTO. Now that is what is worth talking about.

TRL505,
Do yourself a favor and stop posting the trash talk (with people you dont even know), you're not coming off well... And this has nothing to do with brands.

Damn TRL, real classy. I have some buddies that have some real nice Sonics. Sonic made a real nice boat.
+1. They still make a real nice boat.
