Default I don't have to lie

A battle of wits-realy?you guys are so high on yourselves that it's hysterical-I love it.trying to insult me with a trust fund-seriously?should I apologize to everyone because my parents were smart or because I had the balls to risk using it to follow my passion?I'm not sure.What a waste of time-I thought this was about shiek whoever getting into turbine racing-I wish him
Luck-my guess is that its never going to happen or if it does-it's not going to last very long.have fun in your delusional little world.

Jeff, if you read back, you started with the personal attacks and accused me of cheating and having everything handed to me. It was YOU, not me that started, and when I give you **** back you cry and make up silly chit. So back to the real point. You have the best trailer queen race team in the history off offshore racing and I am sure you have the record for most times having the boat in the pits and not making the actual race....congrats

Exclamation

Guys Guys Guys Time out!!!!

While I love hearing a battle of the minds......The end result is still the same. Each of you have your own opinions of each other and of the sport. Each of you have different life stories and how you got to where you are at. You have to ask yourself.... Concerning this thread "does it really matter?' the fact is there is going to be new competition in the class, histroy lessons won't count if you plan on a competitive race with the Shiek.

That being said, who cares about trust funds and Vomit, its all for the advancement of the sport. I wish both of you good luck and hope to see everyone who has the oppurtunity to own one of these fine machines - out using it to promote the sport and give the fans what they are truely waiting for . Multiple boats, Safe Racing and memories to pass down.

Best of Luck

I guess this is why I kind of stopped doing OSO-everyone twists around what is said into something worse.this turbine racing was Geicos little baby-they invited people to do like it was going to be the up and coming class-got a lot of people to believe that it was a reliable way to race.however in the midst of them leaving turbine marine got myself caught up the turmoil and ultimately never let JBS racing rise through the ranks and gain any exposure-we have the talent,ability,and desire to become one of the best teams out there-but it wasn't allowed.no matter if we won or not-all articles only talk about Geico or whoever has enough $ to buy the article-so there's no way to win even if you win.now with this said-there's no help from anyone.when I said I earned it-I mean that i paid for it all myself-with no $ help from sponsors-I drove my own equipment across the country,worked on all my equipment,raced,etc,etc with my family and friends.I tried to have fun with it as well.after all the delays building the boat,losing the boat,and building a new boat I only made it to very limited amount of races-I should have been racing all of 2008,2009,and 2010 and into the future.so when I say I did it myself-I did--I wasn't handed multible boats to use and unlimited funds and people to use as I wished.so of course I'm bitter,or jealous-Geico can do whatever they want-good for them,however it's rude that they have to belittle anyone for trying to do it or keep up with it-it's a monumental task.
So here we are-I've beaten Geico plenty of times and gone faster than Geico plenty of times at offshore events but for some reason Im not allowed to mention it because I didn't have enough $ to just be at some world championships (which is all you have to do to be a world champion).so of course I'm going strike out or speak up-JBS racing is long gone because of all the BS involved-it's not because of my decision or lack of desire-i'de love to be out there every race-to me it's fun-I love it,and I'm good at it.nobody can put me down-I know what I did,I know what I can do,and I know what I accomplished-I don't have to lie or put up smoke shields.JBS racing was dealt a bad hand and there's nothing that I can do about it now but try to let people know what happened and how it happened.still under all the circumstances we did very well from the first time in the boat to the last.so sorry for trying to remind people of races won or speeds reached while doing so.I haven't heard any kind of acknowledgment of any of these statistic-only that Geico has more trophies on the wall.I won't bother listing any other accomplishments because it doesn't seem to matter.
I didn't know about OPA's 150 mph speed cap or no transmission rule-been out of the loop for a while.I dint see the point of the speed cap-now piston cats and vee bottoms can run along side of the turbines and turbine extremes-I don't get it-why do they need other classes then?just have open class,then at least it won't be confusing to spectators to watch when a P boat wins overall.
