Xtreamracingf1:

Last I heard your boat set a kilo record of 86mph which makes your boat a P3 not a P4. But you are right about the wining boat going over 80mph.

Hi Doc,
You are correct we did set a kilo,but we knew we there going to run P-4 so we tried to be as fare as possible.We added 200lbs. in wieght and also added extra wieght by putting 50 gallons on fuel.We aslo ran a smaller prop that put me all over the rev. limiter.
Not a big deal I was just very suprise when they saw the speed they didnt knock him down.But I guess the rules say not average but if you can run over 80 you should get knock down.If you look at it I averaged 79.5mph so I guess i'm just as guilty,because for me to average 79.5 I guess I was running in the low to mid 80's.I really did push hard the last two laps to try and reel him in but there was no way,he had be be in the upper 80's...

Good seeing,

Frank
