    Pretty unreal that these FX class boats are achieving speeds of over 80Mph all on a measly 355hp from ZZ4 crate motors!

    I love watching these boats and that is where I got my pump three stage pump from for my 21 eliminator.
    Scott jets make a similar pump but two stage and on these rivers the Scott's aluminum boats with the two stage pumps are one of the best. I love going to watch them.
    They are only small engine's from boxer fours, Nissan sixes to sbc.
