Not trying to be a trouble maker at all, but how fast are some of the boats on this list or how fast should one be to attempt a shot at the list.

Don't you mean how quick?

None of the piles on the list are extraordinarily "fast".   Lol

For now. I'm sure it won't take long until the gate keeper will be solidly in the 90s.

The mark is moving fast. 90 mph to 110 mph in 800'. GT hit the top boat 9.0 deal about right.

Well the best the black boat ran so far was a 9.09 @ 109 MPH doesn't mean shit. I pulled Dennis by a boat or so.

It will take every bit of 1100 HP to take that Number 1 spot.

I wouldn't doubt we see PE numbers by the end of the year

PE?
Cant mean penis enlargement or physical education. Must be a racing thing.

Now is that 80s and 90s mph in the dead heat of summer or in March and April.  Most the boats that arn't creating their own air
ie.
(nitrous) will most likely  slow down in summer rite ? So my question is what are the bottom of the list boats running when it's 90-110 degrees out.

That was with Jake only running a few seconds of spray to run a 9.09, I have no idea how far we ran when we raced at Mac but my tattle tale said 111.7 km/h so 75 mph

My boat runs about the same number as larrys. My boat leaves a lil harder and I think he might mph me 2-3 mph but I've held it wide by myself on motor when it's been 100 and seen 99.8 took a quarter mile to get there

Oh man you measure in mph. I've been saying all my numbers in km/h to seem faster. 😳
