From what I understand you need balistic shorts if you run over 70 mph not 80 mph.

Everyone in this area should get out and support this event. These drag race promoters want you there. They love fast skis. This type of racing with these promoters will be here for the long haul. Come on out and have some fun.

11.33 seconds in the 1/4 mile must equate to 85 mph?

Thats great news and I hope the central, mid-west guys come out. Looks like you/they are really trying to put something together for the ski guys.

Trap MPH and Times are NOT a direct correlation. If you go 80mph RIGHT NOW, then your Times would be much different than if you went 90mph, but struggled to get out of the gate. So they need to direct the absofuckingworthless shorts to a speed, and not an ET. I use a bungie cord to keep my $200 shorts on. Worthless, worthless, worthless...

to be honest i think its GREAT ...............BUT IJSBA RULES are for CLOSED COARSE BOATS IMO....this type of racing is for DRAG BOATS....i think the rules need changed before you should expect any DRAG RACERS at this event........
SUPER STOCK should be anything EXCEPT lightened hulls, turbos and should have GAS ONLY POWERED ENGINES
UNLIMITED is JUST that UNLIMITED...........
IMO u try and go by IJSBA rules and your wasting your time...i would come but my boats will NEVER MEET THOSE RULES nor will anyone i know with what is TRULY A DRAG BOAT..............good luck either way friend and if the RULES change let us know so we can come run the event with our DRAG BOATS!
