    Default So I opened my big mouth and maybe should have kept it shut....

    so I'll ask the question again; How much power does it take to run 8.00's.

    Can a Daytona, Crusader or Wildercraft run 8.00's with "just" 1,200 hp ?

    No they can't, but I bet you wanted someone who knows by "doing" to reply instead of someone like me.

    I see you're returning the favor......smart-ass ( I thought that was my role here)

    I thought you would appreciate the question.

    And yes, I think I know the answer, but I'd like someone who actually has tried to share.

    Thanks guy's ...

    Nice seeing you all this weekend.

    Wow John, the wife's boat engine runs pretty damn good.

    I saw Grey Matter make a couple of passes on Saturday. I was impressed. Efficiency counts for a lot.

    Sorry Jordan, I guess I should have mentioned a Placecraft too along with the "typical track"

    Thanks again.

    Sorry Mr Pres. I ran those numbers with my 475 inch CHEVY. The Ford out there looked good at 95mph. Good to see you this weekend
