Radar must be a *****! I know Waterfoul's boat goes well over 60 on GPS. Must be the water. Congratulations Mike!

Default Dumb Questions...

Never attending the LOTO shootout, can I get some background on this event:

Is this a measured mile, absolute top speed, one way or both directions, and is how much distance do you have to run up to full speed? Or is it a standing start to reach a certain distance where speed is measured? Thanks!

Congratulations Waterfoul!! Good run. Most of the time the radar is off due to angle of incidents (SP). Something about a cosine law, GPS would be much better. Let me know if they have different classes for 18 footers, I had the slow boat with the 2.4 egg beater on it running 95 yesterday. Imagine what it would do with a drag motor!!!! Congratulations again to all the people that ran. Tom

I'm with Travis and Drag120. Need a class for the little guys. Or maybe we just need to get bigger boats. From what I have heard the lake is pretty rough and boats in the 18 to 22 foot range would probably be pretty out of shape trying to put up big numbers.
