A friend of mine told me some info on this, They are going after the PX Cat class, for kilo record.

Should be fun to watch the outcome...

eMotiondriver,

PX class??? kilo records???

MYPD designed a cat for someone building 47' cats?? I am not sure there is a business case? Is it the old tooling from Dirty laundry II? If not, `I won't be able to sleep tonight...

JT & DS are going to break their own PX class record next week at LOTO around the 200mph mark in DS' 36 Skater with giant hp. What can this new boat hope to achieve? Afterall, it's PX class - APBA may view this class as a threat to their "premier class" - Supercat if things get too interesting...

Come on, give a little info up!

Tachyon, the builder really does not care about the money because his other bussiness compensates him so well. It's a project of love and a challenge to build the best cat.

36spectre,

Intriguing...

Do they intend on selling them or is it a personal quest?

PX class is an amatuer class basically, so I believe there's no reson for APBA to be concerned.

36spectre,

3 time world Champ in what class?

eMotiondriver,

No sure I agree that PX class is an "amateur"
class"... All classes are constructively amateur (i.e. you can't derive a legitamate income from the sport - I wish it was different...) at this point. If the measure is money, talent resources then certainly some people have a commitment equal to Supercat.
