It's starting to sound like PINKS already or like what I heard for 15 years street racing all over the East Coast. It should be another ride boat with in reason. I'm sooooooooo tired of when ever somebody races they want the boat or car to be exactly like theirs. You guy's watch too much Winston Cup oops I mean Nextel Cup! The Predator guy's like A/C motors and CT141 likes car motors they both work on different principles and there is no way it could possibly be construed as fair if the A/C boat had to weigh what the car motor boat does. Someone with a 300HP motor shouldn't be forced to carry the same weight as a 500HP motor. The race should be between a A/C ride boat and a car motor ride boat just because CT141 likes a larger heavier boat the A/C guy's shouldn't be punished. I would have loved to enter this myself but I ain't adding 500 or so pounds to my boat because I built my boat the to be what I wanted. It's the old well you got bigger tires give me two or you got a BBC give me five or you got two stages of N2O SO give me six or the dreaded I drive my car to work everyday so give me a ten car head start. You both built your boat for what you wanted so don't regulate the other guy to run what you run! You should race heads up now that's racing!

I will admit the hill is as much driver as it is boat I have been places with a 90HP Lycoming that most people can't run with a O540. I would love to watch this match up.
