The RAV4 they use to pull it must have a nitrous bottle......

The instagram video is very clearly the v8 exhaust note. I realize most folks may not know what it sounds like with the exhaust open, but that is the start up on the Mercury Racing IG video that dropped today in relation to the 6/18/19 debut.

I hope that history remembers 7 Marine kindly for the impressive hp gap created and the motivation to get Merc there.

Maybe, but also makes some sense to start build the hype (hysteria) before the boat shows commence this fall.

I believe 305SeaHunter is referring to the time of the day rather than the time in the season being strange.
