Thanks everybody for the kind words.
This weekend was a blast and can't thank brad and Brittany enough for all there support.

This weekend was about testing this new boat and really just getting a feel for it. And I can say now, it's a whole other animal than the southwind tunnel.

Now for some numbers.
1000 ft track Top Eliminator 7 second endex
License pass 1 8.08 valved and let out at half track all motor

License pass 2 7.72 out the back door all motor

License pass 3 7.74 out the back door all motor

License pass 4 7.81 out the back door all motor

License pass 5 7.39 out the back door nitrous for a few seconds for our license

In the 16 boat field this weekend we qualified number 15 and also went out first round. (After sitting on the rope for and hour wile they were fixing a censor).

good job jake. 

did it take that long?  what time did we start, 10:30?  I know that john announced Saturday afternoon that we would start at 8:30.  but didn't give any running order.  since there were no differences in running order announced, one would expect the order to be slow to fast.  so at 8:45, he tells us TE is first.  then 10 minutes later he calls us to the lanes like we're late already.  I'm not going to rush just to pacify someone else, when I might forget something and get hurt.  they had all day Saturday to figure out and announce Sunday's running order. 
so we are all finally at the staging lanes and start getting loaded at 9:30.  only an hour late.  then 2 boats go down the track and something's wrong with the sensors so we wait for 45 minutes.  not upset about the sensors, but last minute running order nonsense needs to stop.

anyway, good job with it and see ya at firebird.

The go pro was flashing way over 60 minutes before I got to the out ramp.
John D need to not announce ever again. He's the reason we only got 10 minutes .

Thanks bob👍🏻

I may have been ahead of you on the rope.  don't recall.  I do know they were waiting an inordinate amount of time between runs, after the course was clear and water was fine. 
It is not John D's fault, and he does a good job.  It is someone else's responsibility to set the running order, time to start, etc.  It is also someone else's responsibility to inform the tower when a class needs to be called to the lanes so it can be announced, keeping boats in the staging lanes but not creating a line 2 miles long so engines are completely cold by the time you get launched.  same thing happened at the world finals, same "type" of thing happened in augusta and the lucas parker race last year.  which is why a couple of us brought it up to the powers that be after the drivers meeting in vegas.   At the WF's, Rick Carlson had announced Saturday at 6pm that we would start at 8am sunday morning, and that the order would be TE, QE, PM.  ok, so I get out there at 6:30, get everything ready and staged, warm up at 7:30, all ready to go.  then they call QE to the lanes first.  QE WASN'T ready.  so we stand there and watch QE boats straggle down to the staging lanes for the next 40 minutes.  didn't get anything going until almost 8:45am.  THEN they call PM, and finally TE.   There is no reason they cannot figure this stuff out on Saturday.  they already know how many boats are in each class.  continuously flip flopping the running order at the last minute makes it impossible for the announcer's to keep us informed in a timely manner, and it slows the program.

not at all.  there's no reason to avoid the track other than a person doesn't want to do it.  it's not easy.  all of these issues can be corrected.

The track isn't for everybody. But I do challenge anybody who wants to learn more about there boat to try it at least once.
I've got 100 bucks says you learn more in 3 passes than a whole year at the river.
