    I think the pump is an AT I don't know what type of impeller other than it's stainless steel. The boat does stay hooked up throughout the course. The speed was clocked during testing at the Klamath River Bridge by a CHP at 135 mph.

    Didn't neccissarily get run down, but for the first race for this boat it did extremely well, the Spencer King team was really consistant and made the most of Tim's unfortunate DNF on one leg due to spin out that broke some parts...If I had to lose, I would want it to be to someone who had a race like that, that Ford hauls ass...

    I'm not sure if anything in that BBF is off the shelf Ford stuff....Vey cool.

    CS It is for helping get the hull on step earlier. As you can see these boats are set up a bit tail heavy. They call it a duck bill.
