We did 191 MPH at the spot the radar gun registered. No Doubt… But if you notice in the video I did not let off the throttles at the end of the 1 mile course. I stayed in them for a couple of seconds in the shut down area to make sure I got everything out of the run. My boat is still accelerating until I stop applying power. My GPS is recording the highest speed no matter the distance. So in 1 mile plus the distance I went until I pulled the throttles back I did 198 MPH via my GPS. I should not have put my GPS number in the video. It leads one to believe I am contesting the radar number. I am not… The contest is the fastest speed you can go in 1 mile not 1 ½ miles. If the course were 1 ½ miles we would have done 200 MPH but it is 1 mile. The shootout radar recordings are accurate. We did 191 MPH at the 1 mile mark, period. And what a ride it was… Chip
VERY NICE!!!!!!!
