:stirpot: No cheerleader but Ricky Bobbys boat got crashed into the trees a couple weeks ago and messed it all up. Hull aint right, to cold to fix right for the races. he was just playing around. But hay if the man steps up there and gets beat it is what it is. Turning Wrenches until next time im sure for everyone. Shoot Helms was Doing Ricky Rudd pit stops all day sounded like Nascar with the freaking power tools going on over there. We had fun times tho!!!

I'm sure you wont mind running your 500 plus horse LS against the 300 horse or so aircraft boats. I bet a strong angle valve shooting 250 or so still makes less than your "junkyard LS" Thats a damn good deal where I come from. LMAO. Must be some of that "common core new math" their teaching these days :stirpot:

All BS aside I saw you run that thing at the bus and square pond a few weeks ago. Its hitting hard. Man you gotta get a brake on that thing though. Its way too fast not too.

You will get it tuned in Bronson!! Just think you've only had the boat on the water less than 2 weeks and everyone wants to jump all over you. But I agree and I heard other people talking you do need a brake Bud. Don't want to see ya get hurt. Hard to do it all work,home life, girlfriend and amongst other things it all takes time. We had a great time Saturday!
