A couple guys testing rocket boosters on a classic muscle car out in the salt flats did this. Great idea.
So when can we see a turbine 47 gtx. Im not buying an new OL until i can get that. mainly cuz im sure i wont be able to afford one for a while.

Great job OL, ive always been a fan of your work. Great job Fountain for putting up great numbers.

On paper I figured Reggie had 180 MPH with the increase in HP and 1500 lb weight reduction and went on record as saying it a few days before the run. On paper if you would have put T-2000 HP engines in the boat he ran at the same weight the boat could hit 200 MPH. Personally I think I would rather see Reggie alive and leave it at 177 MPH. It's like when you climb Everest and reach the summit you move on to other things. 177 MPH is really really scary in a v-bottom.

I think Reggie has reached a point where the only thing he can race are the helicopters. So Reggie, take a deep breath and relax. I think you are good for a while!

He probably laughed about the thread on his hair-piece getting stuck in OL's exhaust and can't bear to deal with us! We do give him a ton of s*** to shovel on a daily basis!
