I don't know if this link will work or not but I'm pretty sure this is the same boat... That's pretty insane.

1200 HP on a toon, just slightly over powered.

There are a couple other 'toons out there that will run 100+.
One has inboards.

Brad had a hairy moment in 2012- I think he did 108 in this run.

What does 114 look like?

This is in a car but the data logger in the dash shows the slowest speed recorded at 44 and top speed at 137mph. Slow speed is a 90 degree hard right, with the longest straight right after it being the fastest. It doesn't look that fast but it's my car and I'm the driver.



Yes, I spun the car but still finished 2nd in class. those passing me were in other classes.

Dumbass.

It wouldn't take much of anything for that boat to take flight and start flipping at those speeds.

Looks like a couple of Lifelines would be in order. You know to help locate the bodies.

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
