So who says TRS drives are NO GOOD ? 730 HP @ 7400 an they raced more than


just 40 miles back then. More like 140 miles in the production class, imagine that !

We almost got to race against Fever in the 1996 race at Lake Winni but someone forgot the prop nuts. Fever made it to the milling area and had nothing when the green flew.

No doubt, Fever was the greatest B boat of it's time.

Actually that same day after the race I was asked to join the team. I figured what was the chances of that ever happening again...So I said yes.....
Besides they needed a fiberglass guy on the team after that anyway...
