    Default Jet Boat Kilo Record

    What is it at now?

    What do you have to do to qualify for a Kilo attempt?

    When will the next Kilo's be run and where?

    Whats the deal with engines? Is it true you can go circle race with engine "A" and swap out for engine "B" for the kilos as long as its in the same boat and both engines are legal? A 515" big chief would be badd ass in the kilos.

    Nope.....that one won alot of races and set lap records for the races entered.

    The one I have was strictly to gain the Kilo Record.......made 2 passes at 107/111 for an average of 109.417mph.
