I have to agree standing next to to a Top Fuel Hydro warming the motors is unbelievable. When that thing gets to popping and they hit the throttle and blow the tent up in the air, you get chills. Simply awesome

Not if you had worked on that project..............

I used to say you could set your watch by how long it took each engine to expire........

You throttled up,
The boat planed,
The 4 tachs climbed,
The speedo climbed
one oil pressure gauge dropped to zero
another oil pressure gauge dropped 50%
one tach started to move in the opposite direction
one motor started to missfire
tachs started to move up and down randomly
etc, etc, etc.

It may have a 1968 trailer plate (those 10 years were HUGE in terms of speed)....but that Jones tunnel will still outrun 80% of the boats today.

Here's a Kitson Kraft that'll clean a few clocks too.

Yep. No question. I have heard INXS, all 3 Big Thunders, Planetman, Miss Budweiser, etc. Sorcerer is the meanest.
