  2. SXSPerformance.com UTV Meetup at the In N Out last week!

    Quick recap of the meet up at the In N Out last week! I was surprised at the turnout they got for such little notice! About 30 cars showed up, and it was a great time hanging out with everyone and checking out the rides!

    Still figuring out the editing software for the Garmin, but this is a front view of 117 mph at the Billy B River Rockets event!

  4. Hooked up with Schiada Boats! - Shop Tour

    Now compared to our usual shop tours where we actually try to give a tour of the shop, this article is more focused on what's actually going on down there. I'm only allowed to upload 25 pics onto the front page, and I'd like to focus them on the over the top bad ass builds going on instead of "The Bathroom is on the right."

    As we walked into one of the bay doors of the building we...
  5. TODAYS SPECIAL! A Mind blowing display of DCB's Skills

    This is a great example to show how far the best in the Industry has come in just under a decade. Kenny Gonzales purchased this boat from Maxed Out Marine with the intentions of taking what is arguably a very nice boat and updating it to the best that 2017 has to offer! DCB has recently purchased new sewing machines, and Tony was quick to point out that they are the only ones in...
  6. Wag the Dog - What's the Fastest 400 Boat? DCB Might have the Answer

    Approximately two weeks ago we published an article about "Bullhead Bully" (Paul Wallner) in his 28 SS running 126 MPH in his 28 Nordic SS with Twin 400's. At the end of that article I wrote that it, to our knowledge, was the fastest stock 400 boat out there.

    DCB is not one to be outdone, and in a direct response to that article (and threads in our forums)...
  7. Cobra Power Boats - SHOP TOUR

    I recently took a trip down back to Southern California to visit several industry related shops, and boat builders. One of the stops made a lasting impression on me, and that was Cobra Boats! It has been years since I have taken a hard look at what Cobra is doing (pre-recession LA Boatshow was probably the last time), if we offered a "Most Improved Manufacturer" award at RDP, they would...
  8. Concept Marine Shop Tour

    Just a quick article on the shop tour we took down at Concept Speed and Marine mid last week!

    This is what the shop looked like when we pulled up.

    The place was absolutely littered with Schiada's and bad ass boats. As we stepped inside there was a pretty good back drop for a video. A really nice...
  9. Nordic 28SS Runs 126 MPH with twin 400R's! The Bullhead Bully is on top!

    The Bullhead Bully is on top of the world right now with his latest evening runs yesterday topping out at 126MPH!!

    If you are wondering if it ends here, the general consensus is there's even more to go! The boat was dropped off at Nordic this morning where they are going to make a small modification to the bottom of the boat to allow him to keep water pressure and raise the jack plates a...
