2 Time Unlimited World Champion Waterthunder Congratulations

Post by HuntingBigun » Sat Feb 14, 2009 11:10 pm

History made today As Waterthunder & Ground Rattler Squared off for rematch for the Crown of World Champion Unlimited Airboat,

First Heat went to Waterthunder Big, I will post video for the non believers :violent3: :violent3: :headbang:

2nd heat Ground Rattler after a great hole shot by the rattler Jimmy tried to run the big boy down but no good :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

Tie 1 to 1 What to do that is like kissing your sister on your mouth, :roll: sun long gone, track dark So line them up in the dark hit the Nitro :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: gee hard up enough to keep those things going in a straight line during the day. I offered a frog light :arrow: :arrow: :arrow: :arrow: :arrow: :arrow: :arrow:

:violent1: TIE BREAKER RED LIGHT GROUND RATTLER, CROWN WATERTHUNDER. :naka: :naka: :naka: :occasion5: :naka:

Hats off to both of those guys for that attempt, both boats were the top of the field and to risk injury to try and get it done in the dark was BIG ONES. :wav: :wav:

All the racers put on a heck of a show and many thanks, but here is a thought for George STAGE RACERS :evil: , if was like watching glue dry waiting on boats to come to the line :dontknow: :dontknow: . Great effort by George and all the gang but gee wiz how many times do you have to call for boats to the gate :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

For all the Thunder Haters red light in a unlimited race of any kind you are done :munky2: , the margin of difference between lot of boats is driver reaction, do it right you get the glory jump you get the goat. I think that rule should be for all classes Super Modified and up. That would speed up the race also :D :D :D . It was sad watching people leave early and miss the big boys battle it out :roll: :roll:

I had a small part to play in Jimmy being on his A game, because I am a cheerleader for Waterthunder I told him before the race I just have to kill him if he did not bring the CROWN HOME TO DAVE :glasses7:

AT A BOY DAVE Who say Ground rattler cannot be beat twice :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Both boats were dam fast and to watch them both leave the ramp was unreal! Not to many people can or will drive them I think today I saw the fastest side by side airboat race I have ever seen and to do it in the dark well that’s of the hook. To Brad Henry and Jimmy you guys were the show, two true competitors. Hopefully next time a bunch of petty arguing in other classes will not slow the entire program down for everybody else! I had ten to 20 friends leave before the final once again due to other classes fighting about fuel and holding up the program! Once again let’s all be grateful for a safe race!

Great event George. Great turn out and great racing. I agree with the staging idea, move things along. Lot's of folks left early myself included. There's only so much two kids and an eight month pregnant lady can take. Sorry we missed the unlimited class, but we had a great time.

My wife and I left too. Right before six cylinder hunt boats.

We thought the racing was supposed to start at 11:00 and it didn't actually start until after 1:00.

I agree with the comments about the delays in staging.

Honestly, watching the trucks getting stuck and pulled out across the way was more interesting than the racing.

Riding an average boat can be a lot of fun. Watching someone else ride an average boat isn't.

Well Congrats to Waterthunder. A close race is the best kind of race. And overtime (tie-breaker) games are always fun! Now you gotta HOLD ON TO IT - there's gonna be another race. When's the next race?

As for NARA - I did not make it at all to leave early, :crybaby: but those sound like :idea: good suggestions, and it sounds like George has improved :headbang: from the last races.... so as long as he's improving the show, :notworthy: he's doing something right. Yea George & NARA!! :hello1: :cheers: I hope to be able to attend the NEXT RACE!!! :D

Lee I must tell you an awesome comment I got was when Joey Byers and Jay M, AKA both die hard till death A/C motor guy's told me. The most impressive boat to them was that big yellow boat with a cooler hauling but. Neither of them knew who you were or what motor was on your boat! That made my day right there! We need to spend a weekend ridding so we can work on your hole shot! I truly enjoyed seeing that grin on your face, congratulations on second!

Oh they'll be there! I did talk to Ronnie, owner of the bullet boat, and they had a bad intake leak that couldn't be fixed. The Red straight valve 540 was running pretty damn good in unlimited. Just needs a bigger shot. I also talked with Jason Simms, and they were there to see how things went. He said they will have the green Hoffman boat at the next races. They have there work cut out for them for sure!!! But I do remember when Jason beat Lou in Felda to win unlimited with the grenn hoffman boat! Good times to come for sure!!

Didn't mean it in a bad way. I hope more and more come! Carmotor or aircraft, the unlimited class is by far the crowd pleaser, so the more the merrier. I wish I had the time and money to run it and I'd be there too! :D

Hey Brew I'm working on that now. You had better start rehearsing your next excuse for when a DD car motor spanks your but in the water and on the hill! First it was car motors suck then it was they are to heavy and now it’s take off your gearbox. Well you should know by now I love a good challenge! HE-HE-HE! You need to find a way to make that pumpkin of yours run better I’m gonna be gunning for ya soon!
