No !

This was from last years world finals

This year had the quickest Top Fuel field ever !

We were #6 qualifier w/4.95 @253mph

Was a good weekend ,but we went out first round when the other guy ran 4.81 to beat us.

It was great to be part of the quickest Top Fuel field ever !

This is our boat.

The set up on the boat pretty much stays the same.

As for the props this is just alot of trial & error. The new billet CNC props are alot better,but all have to be hand finished & adjusted acordingly.

All the Top Fuel boats are now Twin Propeller so you now have two props working together,but in the end even w/CNC props no two sets are alike.

I have been w/this team for along time & have been able to experience alot along the way.

If you ever get the chance to see fuelers run I highly recomend it !

So where do you find pilots for those things? The suicide prevention hotline?

Rizzo they use props on them damn things? How about that pump thingy that was on yours? Wouldn't that make them quicker? Or are they no legal?

For what I do the jet pump is far better for the inital holeshot,but w/the kinda power a Top Fuel boat makes there aint no way to make it work except for a prop.

To date our quickest 1/8th is a 2.97 @ 220mph

We did have a guy pay $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ to make 2 - 330 hits back in spring or 2003.

I have always had a standing offer to make a 1/4 & 1/2 track pass,but my better judgement tells me to stick w/my boat & the much slower race cars I drive now.
