    Default Drivers view of a 4.10 et 660 ft pass in new placecraft jet!!

    Pay no attention to the oversteering errors. Forgot to center the steering wheel. This run was against an 8 mph river current and head wind, 400 inch bbc, e 85 pump gas, 25 lbs boost.

    Did you pedal it or did it have bog. Notice the tach on the leave. Going under that bridge looks interesting. Did the bridge support split the lanes or were both lanes on one side?

    No bog. The tach movement was result of rev limiter messing with it. No pedaling done..... I believe both lanes went under the same side of bridge, could be wrong. Didnt pay that any attention. It was a huge gaping hole and didnt bother me at all.

    The pillar in the middle split the lanes, boat on each side.

    Cool video. The bridge would have made me nervous. The dock at smokin in the cove worried me.

    at least the bridge was at the end of the run where the boat should be fairly stable by then. The dock at sitc was quite a bit sooner i believe and it bothered me just watching people run there, in that lane especially.

    you'd notice the dock at lake Catherine when sitting on the rope. once you started the engine, you never noticed it again.

    The left lane was wider at the dock than at the finish line. Both lanes were 106 ft. Wide at the finish pole.

    somebody pulls to within 5' of me when I'm at my launch point, if they get wet it's their own dam fault. in fact, I hope they do. I don't like that shit and I've yelled at guys when they do it. better yet, pull over to 3' away from greg carr when he launches, lol. even better, pull over next to a fueler when it's launching. make your day...
