I hear ya, Summer O!! These guy's are missing your point!! The Shootout would be awesome if they both showed up!!

The Shootout started because of "Bragging Rights" and has grown into one of the biggest events of the year!!

I personally would like to see them go head to head. This is about top speed in a straight line. The motocross bike is actually a good comparison because they do drag race them all the time as well as motocross. Have you guys ever seen dirt drags? They are pretty cool to watch.

A quick question for all you hard-core, 8 foot sea, "offshore" guys.

Where do you think the majority of these offshore style boats are being run? I know there are a lot of guys that run in the ocean, but I think there are more on inland waterways. Even if I'm wrong, there are still thousands of us that don't run in the ocean. I have run the big water before and quite frankly, I'm not crazy about beating my boat and myself to death. Just my opinion and I know everybody has one...

The weight of the Fountain is 10,080 lbs , I do not know the weight of the OL.

Who cares? Use as much HP as you want. It's STILL all about who is faster at the radar trap.

If you give them rules, they will cheat anyway.
