    I just received word that Harold Bruce was not Legal under CompJet rules (no rudder on boat) and that # was disallowed.

    He mounted a rudder and went back out and has increased the new record to 98.4mph. This is still pending final inspection !

    Congradulations to R and D Marine !

    Harold Bruce is now the Official APBA Comp Jet/Inboard Endurance Record holder. With a speed of 98.4mph from a RandD prepped Rogers with a 468ci Chevy.

    All of Harold's passes looked real nice. The rudder was never and issue, he put it on for the last set of runs, as he said it really had no effect on the speed. There was no existing record, so what ever he ran would become the new bench mark record.

    Terry mentioned harold held the previous record back in the day at 112mph.

    remember, this record was set with a 468ci motor. he left a lot of room for other people to go be record breakers.

    not so quick there...

    in order to qualify to run the kilo...not only does your boat have to be compjet legal, but you have to compete with it and get 3rd or better.

    Kinda eliminates someone just building a boat strictly to set an unreachable compjet kilo record and that wouldnt be worth a damn in the circles.

    From what I understand, back in the day they ran circles as 'qualifyers' then you went for your kilo record...all in the same weekend....and you had to do it all in the same weekend.

    Default Run up

    What was impressive was the run up, or lack of run up, to the traps. It looked like he just left the marina, turned left, put the boat on plane, eased up towards the traps and hit it. I'll bet it was still accelerating out the other end. I think he left a lot on the table on purpose. One of the best "sounding" boats all weekend.....Ray
