    Default Whats goin on.

    This seasons been great, I've really been running my boat hard and i'm really happy with how it's performing. I've only raced v-drives, and i've only been out accelerated by one. Most of the time i pull or run neck and neck with them until my top speed and a few of them that have alittle left pull away. Every evening i get people telling me how hard my boat runs, and they are always amazed it's a jet. I usually take this as just the adverage joe who doesnt really know too much accept when they see a flatty they think it's a all out race boat that will kill anything. This weekend i got to race my first Jet, I'm not sure the hull but it looked simular to the TPR/Cheynne/Ultra style boats. He was running zoomies and the motor was blown. I even think he was running a popoff. The boat was white with blue and he was staying just above fox's on the california side (where that gas station is with the tank up on shore)... Anyway, i case him down and we line up. I'm thinking he's going to kill me but i just want to race! Were on plane but cruisin around 2500 rpm. He jumps on the throttle and we run and i notice... shit he's not pulling on me... Next thing i know im tapped out MPH and he's still going and slowly pulls away. We line up again, this time he lets me go first. I mash the gas and were neck and neck until again i'm tapped out MPH wise. He pulls away again.

    WTF is going on here, shouldnt these guys be killing me! I'm pretty proud with my boat and motor right now. Especially since i rebuilt the pump myself and rebuilt the motor myself! Great satisfaction!

    You might want to show up to some gathering next year....it can be a re-evaluating experience, when you line up with the double duty jets that hang out on these boards!lol

    Maybe he has a 4 x 4 block under the gas pedal that's his speed limiter at Parker.

    Some guys use only what they need, depending on where they are and who they're racing.

    Just a thought. Your boat looks nice, and you should be proud of your accomplishment.

    DOubt it, the first race he didnt even look over. Think he was pretty confident that he was going to beat me. Second race he looked over and i was right there with him... You think he would have mashed the gas to pull ahead. Also the water was pretty good where we ran.

    I agree, it's a mild build, what i've always thought. Not trying to say it's some magical boat/setup.

    Here you are crying about not getting any racez and that when u do you just whoop everyones azz along the parker strip!!! Then in the same sentence you cant manage to get your boat ready in 2 weekz to actually race it? C'mon kid. You have avoided all events where the hitterz are and now your pokin out on the dragz. whatz goin on????

    Bring this animal out to bakersfield and you will get all the racing you can handle. Think about it this way, you will be able to start another thread all about yourself. BTW you didnt start a new thread today, whatz goin on?
