I guess it would all depend on how level the boat is running. Or what would be really trick would be if its adjustable while running. I would have to believe someone did the math on the angle of the hatch with that much of a scoop at 200 MPH

Looks sweet, but why the small windows? I could imagine it is hard to see out of them.

Not much need to see much else on a closed course. Just look forward and go. Be interesting to know if there was any wind tunnel testing of a model to help with the design. We have a wind tunnel at my job thats used for testing for anything and everthing. Used alot for body positions for the Salt Flats speed runs on motorcycles.
Some people are like Slinkies - Not really good for anything, but they
bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

Good luck you guys! With Mike's motors turning the screws, you should have a good shot at bringing home the record.
