Thats about the same as the 0-60 on my street bike (3.5 secs) and faster then any production car on the market. So it's just another sales claim.

Pretty kool I wonder if it is really that fast?
There are a few racers here who's boats go from 0-60 mph+ in 120 feet. I don't know the ET though. I lost some info on the Radar computer program that had 20-80 mph times on my boat and Thunderpumpkins Place Craft the numbers were impressive but I didn't get them backed-up.

I don't think that boat will do it with 375 hp.

Those sprint boats are awesome.

Maybe not too far off.
My buddy in Alaska has some sort of former champion sprinter with a small block. Like 14' or something, with a roll bar, recarro bucket seats etc.
It does about 80 MPH, but it does it RIGHT NOW!!!!
Turns at 70 MPH on a dime.:)devil

Thing is absolutely insane!

claiming BS.....

On data I can look at time and speed on my race boat and others and I can tell you it's gonna take a lot more than four seconds for an aluminum boat with 375 hp to go 0-80.
Have you ever ridden in one?:)bulb
My buddies is better than ANY ride in the world. 14' with about 500 HP. Jet sticks out the back like Hoolis' boat.

I don't know that this boat does it, in fact, doubtful with that motor (just like you said) but there is no way these things can be compared to the lake, river and drag Jet boats we are familiar with.

Nope, I'm sure it's cool, but better than ANY ride in the world... well I'd say that's a matter of opinion. I like my tunnels. Some like their gullwings. Others like their v-bottoms. To each his own.

In dealing with physics, it won't do 0-80 in 4 seconds with 375 hp.

I cant belive they race those things in a pond in the middle of a corn field. That would be a hella of a ride.

Seriously. That is some hillbilly sh*t. But I gotta say, they look like they are on rails.
THey were at Firebird at the opener and they were bad ass!!!They came at the wall and turned on a dime! That would be a crazy ride.

I looked at some data I get to 100 in 4.2 to 4.4 depending on conditions from a dead stop. I don't think these will do it from a stop. Too much weight not enough power.

144 psi = 100 mph. might wanna double check that, your 8.20 deal aint putting down 4.2-4.4's :)hand
