It's a "mellowed" down version of the 1075 .... Baja is supposed to be doing a 36 with a pair of them .... don't know if it'll make the show or not .

Just a little more info on the MTI Speedracer. I haven't seen it but I have talked to Gart Stray, Randy's partner, He said the boat was pretty incredible, it is a 44 PR version same as randy's boat on the cover of Powerboat this month. It has fuel injected, QuadRotor, Sterlings, 1530HP.He made a lot of custom pieces to make it look like the cartoon and lots of custom paint in the bilge.Also the boat will be kept at LOTO and should run in the shoot-out this yr.
I can't wait till tomorrow to get fown there.
