the 344 has a better ride, better accelaration, better looking, can be driven at all speeds, and is custom. the 35 lightning can top 100mph with the 525's my 344 does 94 with the 525's but the fountain SUPPOSEDLY is undriveable at that speed and really bad at low speeds. i got a ride in a 35 lightning before they started staggering the motors and it was good but after i got a test ride in a hustler that was it i had no choice i had to order one because there was no way i was going to use my formula again...

The 344 will run over 100 with the stock 525's.

I have a customer in FL that has a 525 with Arnesons that runs 103 consistently.
