Default 195 MPH ride on Jet Set today

Does anyone want to hear the story behind my 195mph ride on Jet Set today? Or is it enough to say that my life is now complete.

Are those the same type of turbines that the Drambuie on Ice poker run boat has?

Exclamation

RonP - Is it safe to say that Jet Set won the "Extreme Cat" category in the NJPPC Radar ShootOut today???

Do you have results for any of the other classes?

Thanks to my buddy Joe the Marine Police Cop that really wanted to go for a ride, we pulled over Jetset and boarded with three cops. The charge was speeding and he could either give us a ride or go directly to jail.

He chose wisely.

When you ask Mike about how he makes U turns at 150 mph, he says it's all about respect.

Body Shot and I were on different trips. I definitly saw the air speed indicator over 190. Pure brute power from twin 1850 HP helecopter turbines turning Rolla props on Arneson drives. Defintily the E ticket ride for kids over 40.

Thanks Joe for having the badge and Mike Fusco for sharing his incredible toys.

I think Color Me Bad took top honors at 136??? And my neighbor took first for the 25 to 28 V class at 84mph in his 28 Checkmate.

Not sure of any others. Oh, top speed for a 28 Skater with O/Bs was 107.
