I'd be more impressed if said 100 m.p.h. pontoon was grilling burgers and wieners at the same time.

Or this run from a couple of hours ago. ;)

Looks like perfect weather for record runs, 73Β°F during yesterday's run was 10-15 degrees cooler than average.

They're running a +501 cubic inch engine and going after the AA/BFS record. The engine can produce more than 3,000 HP, but it's dialed back. Otherwise the engine would produce wheelspin in all gears, killing the speed.

They had a real challenge fitting the Gen VI big block between the frame rails. Judging from the time slips it looks like they're coming home with the record.

They are currently running a 555ci. BBC. I'm not sure if they are going after another two class records this week or not.

From who's sending me the time slips I'm guessing Shane Tecklenburg is tuning the engine.

@parker ed should know more about their intentions for the week

Right. I said '501+ cubic inches', because that's the step from A/BFS to AA/BFS. I also noted it was a Gen VI big block.

With the larger engine and the fact it has forced air induction, the only other class record they can grab is by switching to gas and running in AA/BGS. If they have another engine prepped that's under 500 CI, they can go after the A/BFS and A/BGS record. I don't recall if the Speed Demon currently holds those records, but even if it does they can attempt to reset them.

Yes, I did understand your +501 and was only offering usless information that only you and I might appriciate and in no way meant it as a correction to your post.

As more useless info. comes in I'll update this thread if deemed useless enough. 😁

And I'll make more useless comments about your useless comments. It should also be noted we're threadcrapping in a thread about ridiculously overpowered and overpriced pontoon boats, which neither of us own.

This should result in a two week ban for both of us, because we have no business being here, are obviously uncool, and just a couple of old dinosaurs.

This thread was DOA until we came along. RD should be paying us!

And if you don't believe it, just look at Stevens good morning Parker thread. :D

They are getting ready to run again this morning. Shane said yesterday they found an issue that should be good for a little more.

Are there any live videos being shot and broadcast over the net? The only info. I'm getting are the time slips from Tek after the run.

Now you're catching on. Seize the moment and make this thread your own. 😁

I'm told that the 257 ci engine is going in now.

Here's the pontoon boat connection --- a mere 15,000 years ago you could have run a 100 mph pontoon boat on Lake Bonneville 😁

I find the useless facts interesting, in fact more interesting than any discussion about 100 mph pontoon boats. πŸ‘
