With some very crude editing software and lack of computer skills on my part this is how it turned out! The camera is a little $160 deal you can buy at hobby people or most local motorcycle shops. It just suctions on push the button and go. Looks like Ron needs a little more side support in the seat but he wont give up the suspension seat. oh well. Enjoy

That rogers looks like the setup is right on, the pic from the other thread is awsome that thing is aired out!!
We have some more tuning on the setup to do but its a great start. That picture is really cool, Ron got crossed up in a couple wakes and launched the boat but it settled really well.

That's an awesome video Ronnie, you're killing me. I know you may have something in the works but I agree with Mike, you need a seat like that.

See you soon..........john

If he won that race I think a new nick name would be appropriate something like "One Arm Bandit". Actually, the video is pretty funny he makes it look like he's just cruising down the river.

Mcintyrelocal, I think you're talking about this pic.


Desrtrat is talking about a pic that was taking out of the video over on socaljetboats.com at about 2 minutes into it. I started to spin and you can see me turn hard right to keep the boat from coming around.

John, set your sons boat up to race and come on and join us.

As far as the seat goes its a full suspension seat which saves my back but does tend to bounce abit. I think if I had a dead pedal to push against I wound probably bounce less.

78 SW I finished up 3rd for the weekend. I'm only running a 427 at a fuzz over 80. And It is like a cruise down the river, except its safer when you know the guys around you.

I know first hand how nice those seats are for your back, I have two of the Super Seats in my 8100 F100, but I think you could use a little more lateral support. I know the seat I have in the Sanger is real nice, it supports me all the way down past mid thigh. The pedal helps a ton too. Davey B makes some real sweet seats, custom fit to the driver. I sat in one of those seats Mouzer has a pic of today at the shop and I don't like it personally. Some people swear by them.

I do know how much fun it is out there, not sure if we will ever make it back out. This whole ordeal has been quite rough on me and the family.

After racing with you at Puddingstone, I was looking forward to a season of side by side excitment on the coarse.
Hope you get all that salvage stuff settled and behide you soon.

WTF?????

Dude, really. If you find yourself needing to hold yourself into the seat with one of your hands there is something seriously wrong.

My first suggestion. Fix it.

Second suggestion (if you don't follow first suggestion) Always mount the camera in there so we can watch when your ass gets thrown out of that thing.
