Default Fastest Heat?

Ok guys...

Who has the fastest Heat, and what was the setup?

I am not talking about some he said/she said BS story, but an actual consistant GPS reading, and someone else to verify this. Not some one time peak speed number, but a consistant performer, with witnesses to back it up.

I am pretty sure that the Ilmore 700 boat is the fastest to come out of the factory, with a consistant 86-87mph verifiable GPS speed.

So again...

Who has the fastest Heat. and what was the setup?

Chris

There are definately a few fast ones floating around.

I'm thinking wild ride at a 100. Conditions would need
to be perf.

Default fastest heat

ok i can backup zuck running 95 and nate and i have run 97 in our heats. nat runs a whippled 598 and i am running a pro charged 540. hopefully with the mods i am making this winter we will see the dollar bill. oh and i almost forgot bubba runs a whippled 500 with afr heads running low 90s now we may not be the fastest but out of the eleven nordics here in nashville we have a pretty consistent group.

I have ridden in the R-Tech boat at 99.3, 99.7 and 99.8 all on the rev limiter (6000) with a stock 32 at Lake Havasu. (4-5 people and never under a half tank) These numbers are from a Livorsi Digital GPS speedo with recall back by a Garmin handheld.
If we were able to play more at this elevation rather than our 5000 feet we would certainly be able to break the century mark with ease.

During our limited trips to the Poker Runs in Havasu it runs these numbers any time of day and gets there with mind blowing acceleration. As far as a hand full, no, it runs like it is on rails. Also has been run over to MaxMachine 2 of the 4 trips to Havasu for some teeth work

No BS numbers here, just facts. Ask DeserRage, it was an eye opening experience for him

The owner has since gotten bored and sold the boat this year and has now moved into a 388 Slingshot that we are currently building twin 1000EFIs with the new 4.0 Whipples. Now that ought to be an interesting ride

(as far as he said, she said, there was supposidly a solid yellow Heat on the Ohio River with a Pfaff 1100 that ran 103 and kept splitting the lower on a B-Max)

All it takes is horsepower

Dave
