Kenny Mungle a.k.a. GoneAgain Skater, has offered up his badazz Sterlings for RF3 to use, in a Kilo attempt! This is getting interesting.

I wonder if they are going to spin the blowers up more, or just run them as 1500's. Be very interesting if they beat the OL record now with less power.

Not going to happen! Not saying the 180 can't be beat, but it's not going to get done with less power.

After seeing both speed runs In my opinion the OL is way safer at those speeds. The Fountain looked like a bass boat balancing on the pad while the OL looked much more in control.

Why would they even want to spend stupid money and risk lives for the record when they aren't even making boats anymore? It's not going to happen.

If I'm not mistaken rf3 has reworked twisted metals bottom and is currently under another 42. So. These could be rf bottomed fountains potentially doing this. Not from the original mold.
