I thought the HP limit for an ET class motor is 1850?? Surely the T55s are illegal...

Installing T 55's is one good way to ruin the class.

Rumor has it they bought the JBS boat?!?! Is this true?? This came from another Turbine team member.To me from the article it's a new boat being built if it's not going to be ready until 2013 season.

Don't know about them buying JBS, but they are definitely building a new 2012 Mystic C5000. It will be a incredible rig!

Page lawsuit? Interesting.

Page as in different than the Gratton lawsuit? Page as in he is involved in his own lawsuit, or a party to the Gratton lawsuit since it was the Page Motorsports team and if so; on which side of the table?

yes definently yes..........

nothing worse than having an extreme class with someone going more EXTREME ??? i would hate to see this "one boat" class get ruined. so sad, hopefully offshore racing can make it through this and continue on it's path of self-destruction, opppps i mean awesome racing.

Default Crying

A couple things-I'm not sure who is spreading rumors but my turbine boat has not been sold yet-I haven't even gotten any offers-the only people interested in it are people that want the commission from selling it.
The other thing is that look at all the crying and BS just between cat 750 and 850-your only talking about a 200 hp difference.do you realy think that a boat with 2000 more hp isn't going to cause some whining and crying.Geico I'm sure is psyched to have someone to run against but surely there's going to be problems when they get beaten on a regular basis.
The other thing I see is that the article says they are having a transmission.Geico claims that there are no rules but there are a bunch of rules and having a transmission is illegal.
All I see are problems with this already-like there aren't enough already.
