the engine builder should have been ready with spares to change in a parking lot if need be.....

I want your checkbook.

[QUOTEWere you posting the same thing a few months ago when OL had a few hundred more HP but only went a couple clicks faster.... The GPS SBI thing....[/QUOTE]

hmmm.... now lets not forget about the circumstances under which OL "CLAIMED" to have gone a few clicks faster. The CEO of OL and his Co-pilot go out for a joyride, come back from their ride and say nothing for 5 days, watch Reggie Fountain do a properly timed and documented speed. Only then five days after the fact OL announces to the world that almost a week ago they set a New World Record for the Fastest V Bottom in the history of Mankind - and all he has to offer up as evidence is their on-board GPS. I said it then and I say it now, GIVE ME A FREAKING BREAK. That had to set a new low in the history of motor sports to claim a World's Record based on a GPS documented Joyride.

Having said that, I have no doubt that Outer Limits has the capability to surpass the 171 mph mark - and will probably do so in the near future. I just hope that use the good sense to properly document it in a legitimate event before they again claim to Hold the World Record.

Congrats to Fountain. Wish the OL hadn't broke, not because I like one over the other but because things would've been SO MUCH more entertaining on here.

I agree that the only real test is to put "sealed 525's" in the boats, then run the kilo's.

I have a funny feeling that SKATER would smoke them both in that test.

Racecrafter has run his own motors in Sorcerer (40' Skater) on alot of poker runs, one of which I was in. They have consistently ran good thru many poker runs across the country. I don't know what happened this time.

I cannot understand why OL would not have re-built with 27hrs at a 30 hr preferred build time-frame. They need to be done soon and with all that is on the line, doesn't make sense to me.

Food for thought...would fountain run a true fountain against skater or one of the fountain Kilo boats that DMC actually finished for them? Wouldn't it suck for Skater to compete against a boat it actually built

Personally, I am more impressed with someone like Joe Skrocki. He runs out there almost every week-end with production sealed 525 Merc's and XR drives.
And this is what 95% of us run as pleasure boats. Now this is the real world. And as for starting a new class of boats to run the KILO, why not bring the old heavy slugs with non-stepped huals weighing in at 10,000+ pounds with a 525 HP rule. Now this is realisitc.
And as for outerlimits--Who the h*** would come to an event like this without back-up equipment??? That is just plain STUPID. They totally humilated themselves and this will always be hanging overthem now.
Let me guess, for the next KILO, OL will have a lighter hull, more horsepower, hidden nitrous in the boat (remember Darrell Alderman-pro stock drag racer?)
Don't get me wrong, I am in a neutral position here. I own neither an OL or Fountain. But it is what it is.
P.S. Sterling motors---excellent motors, but over-hyped.

Excellent point radioboy!
