If the situation as described weren't so pathetic, I'd say it was refreshing to hear something negative about an organization other than the APBA.

Reparations? The heck with reparations. I'd just load up and race somewhere else. If that meant P-Class, so be it.
Unfortunatly, there is no other place for us to race. For another class we would need differant boats.

APBA did the same thing to a great class.But they are always doing that to racers. Since we can all remember when a class gets good,What a great time mess it UP!They did it in The modified class ,D-Class ETC...

Lubejobs, don't think think you can't compete with HP 500 EFI or even the HP500 carb in Factory 2. The kilo holder is the Speedwear 38 Fountain and that boats has HP500 carbs!!!! APBA Offshore has differant minimum weights for the HP500 carb, efi and the HP525 to insure parity. It does work!
Take care, Mike Carter
It is true, the 525 guys need to be 500 lbs. heavier. 940 Hp vs 1050 hp is a 11% differance. 500 lbs added to an 8000 lb boat is a 6% differance. Truthfully it's not enough weight to compensate for the additional horse power. Now you have the new Skaters and Scisms with their 60 inch wide tunnels. they pack a lot more air then the Spectre, Motions or older Skaters. Also with the wide tunnels there X dimensions are totally differant then ours. That's why dirty duck is running 120 in the kilo. The only way any of us (Zipp Express, Fastboats.com, peppers, myself, etc) can compete is either A. Shell out $60,000 for new 525's, B. Buy a new boat or C. If APBA would let us 500 EFI guys raise our X dimensions.

Lube Job, Come on up to NJ and run with OPA. We have a race next Sunday 6/22 in Seaside NJ. Run in our P1 class against old Skaters and motions.

Atlantic City is July 19 -20 This should be a big event.

How many boats usually show up for this class? It may be an option.

Maybe the best solution to all of this is simply eliminate SBI and the LLC and start fresh.

I like Shane's idea but put a organization together with racers on the board. And have a jury when caught cheating..

The 2 things people hate most are Lawyers and Promoters
