    Default Holy crap!

    What happened to nitrous prices? I hadn't really thought about it and seldom use my nitrous, but I went a filled a bottle for this weekend. $65.00!

    I was filling em last year for $44.00 and at the same place. I know everything's going up, but holy crap $20 in from one year to the next.

    Now I know I need to build a bigger motor. Yeah, I'll still spray it too, but not like I used to.

    I still had half a bottle left after last weekend. I kinda picked this one up as insurance. You might want to hold onto it. The price is going up faster than gold. Next year you might be able to sell it for 3 times what you paid for it.

    The last weekend at the river is when it hit me. There's such a huge difference in performance with the new boat and 150 more horsepower. That's the speed I'd like to be able to run without the juice. The next motor will definitely be built for 650-675 hp. A little spray on top for a race here n there and I'll be a happy camper.

    How about a trade?

    You install the 100 mph in my boat and I'll install the stereo in your boat.

    122 in a gullwing...that's a nice round number. how'd you settle on that? might as well shoot for 125 with a cooler, anchor and the all important bow light, dan.
