    Cool Any V-Drive killers?!?

    Trying to see if there are any v-drive killers out there. My uncle has a new one on the way, he talks so much garbage about jets that I have to get mine dialed in. I also had one run up on me in Elsinore, but it was a nice shovelnose. But I was just trying to see who is kicking ass and taking names lol. Any advice

    Race him over a rock bar. See how his v-drive likes that.

    The Parker 300 next month,

    The V-Drivers will be there in force GN's

    In the last 4 years I have only seen 1-jet boat show up (275)

    bring your jets to the race and we will see who's BAD

    The jets get a 7 lap head start that's 42 miles over a 2 liter outboard plus 10 more minutes over the Gn's

    The green O/B give you even more time

    You jet boats can run anything under the sun 525 inch N/A

    I prefer to run my boat and let it do the talking in the end

    I bet only the 275 jet boat shows up

    And the Comp jet boats stay home and hide
    If you ain't the lead dog the view is always the same !

    I believe jets can hold there own in the 1/4 mile if set up properly.

    go to the drags and watch anything 7 sec or higher and u'll know jets can more than hold there own. You hardly ever see an outboard out there.....manly because they look and sound gay i assume . Bring out that war canoe thing and out it on the rope and see how it lines up to the flats and jets. racing the enduro is not a jets bag, it would be like showing up to the baja 1000 in a sand dragster and expect to win. whats a decent outboard make like 400hp??? hell id hope it would stay together and get good gas millage thing doesn't make enough power to hurt a fly. p.s. outboards r gay!

    There's the magic words. I used to get that shit from mustang and import owners all day long when my bone stock Z06 would whoop their asses. "We'll if I had this and I had that". Yea, well if I had that too I'd still whoop your ass.
    Last I looked, there's no jet fuelers running 260+mph. So this is kind a pointless. Besides, I have yet to personally witness a jet run a full 1/4 mile in a river/lake race.
