It looks almost doubtful that he reaches that speed so quickly. The run seems short in order for him to have reached that speed. Wonder what speed he would have gotten running a little longer and further with less fuel? 90mph?

actually he runs 85.2 mph...
That is a triple pipe GPR

I have seen with my own eyes Kerry Hibdon hit 85.8 MPH in 400 feet

Is he running nitrous? I think that is an unfair advantage if it is...

Nope, there ain't no nitrous in that ski, just horsepower. The next day I hit 85.0 and 85.2 respectively, I pointed the video camera downward toward the gps on those runs and the video looks retarded. I like the 83 vid because you "see" the acceleration and hear the engine go brrrrrp.
According to Kerry, our skis go 0-60 in 4 seconds, 0-80 in 7.8 seconds which seems reasonable to me. When you get past 79-80 is when your hull set-up will help you or hurt you as far as speed. Thats why the hull is the difference when climbing higher top-end speeds, it must be changed to allow higher speed without porpoising or bucking yet be glued enough to feel comfortable past 80mph.
Go to MudbugII and you can ride it.
