Austin Coil is from funny car fame not top fuel. He has been John Forces crew Cheif for all of his 100 + victories.

could you imagine what the fountain would do with twin racecrafter 2000hp's!!!!! P.S.- I think the idea of having similar engines for speed runs is a good idea...but...cheating would run rampid....

...how about Teague's new 1400HP dual blower engine? Run Triples in an epoxy 42'


186MPH if they can keep the weight down to 7,ooo lbs...would need 6,000lbs to get to 190+ with 4200HP

...hey when he hits 200mph THEN we can say he has balls the size of church bells and knows how to ring 'em
too!

One thing you have to say about Reggie...knock on wood....is that he can run the whole show from the cockpit....goes as fast as greased lightening on a daily basis...and knows how to CONTROL a boat....

...do it but be safe!



Reggie Kneivel Fountain!
