if another (thread) is started and takes a similar track and degree of nastyness it will see the same fate. to repeat good natured bantering is one thing, nastyness, arguing, fighting, laced with profanity with a side of disgust is another. don't bring it here to performanceboats please
It would seem the Red Cup guys just believe in river racing....run what you brung and hope you brung enoung.... Win or lose you have a good time and when it's done you have a beer with your friends or nemesis. The other camp ....let's just call them the Pink Panty camp (for sake of argument) believes in a host of rules including how many carbs you have, nitrous bottle, blower, number of seats, size of your fuel line, how many oil filters you run, does your jet boat have a rudder and what size fuel tank your boat has. The list of rules just seems to get in the way of what river racing is about ........having fun.
Now I happen to be a firm believer in everyone should get "their" race. Meaning, if you go from a dig first and then the other guy wants to go from a roll 25-30 mph then run the race both ways.
So who thinks rules for river racing are for panzies? ( I hope I can use the word panzy and the thread not get closed)
Curt...do you hangout on the Power-puff sand bar?Tiki. I know what hull you have and who's engine that is(kind of). Do you have the single 4 barrel setup for that engine? Would you consider using it? I'm informed that NOS won't be an issue, correct?
Let us know if you're interested in saying "when".
And has anyone figured out why that engine would "turn blue" if it ran 5 miles up river ?
