Bad ass video!! This really makes me consider taking my love for racing to the next level. Unfortunately I checked my bank of america account and it said otherwise :bangmyhead:

bitchin video mike.:))THumbsUp especially the clips of that red/white pc :). no question, the wf's can rip you up. i know, it's been doing it to me for 10 years. after awhile, you just get used to it and realize it's the biggest crapshoot on the circuit. nothing you did the rest of the year has any bearing on performance whatsoever. anybody running on sunday has a chance to win the thing. you can make the greatest pass you've ever made, almost 00s on both ends, and get your ass handed to you. you can be completely dialed, win every race all year long, be a top 1 or 2 qualifier, have your ass handed to you first round. i've experienced pretty much every kind of downer you can at that race. and all you can do is do it again.

very cool video...

ya it's a brutal place to tune for. I really thought we had a great chance. Jeff cut something like eleven 0 lights in a row between test n tune and race day. I think two of them were red but his average for the weekend was a 0.03 second reaction time. He was on fire.

and if the fuelers had actually gotten down the track on Sunday maybe the place wouldn't have been so fast. We had a 9.05 tuneup in the boat and it broke out with the popoff open. Oh well, next year.

thanks for all the props, everyone. Wish we could do more of these vids on boat racing but it's not the most popular sport among the Hot Rod audience. Spread the word about this one and maybe we can do it again.

Really cool video Mike !:))THumbsUp. That would really help a person who has never been to the track understand what's involved.

Almost made me want a jet boat :happy:
