View Full Version : Airboat Hill Race

10-22-2010, 08:44 PM
Nov. 6th at the Cocoa Fair. This will be Drag Racing the Airboats on the ground across the Baseball field. I have been challenged by the Screaming Seaman to run against his 150 HP mini that has a 48 ci 2 stroke. I might take Scorpy's 70 HP Briggs off the water hull and put it on another hull and see if it will pull him off the line. The worst i can do is loose but we can still show some more innovation. My reaction time is no good anymore so i am looking for a driver that don't weight much and can show a good reaction time on the computer. Does anyone know a good horse jockey?
Thanks, Chuck

Hey Chuck, I'm an old drag racer. I'd be glad to do it! All I would have to do is lose about 125lbs.

Hey Papee, If you can cut a .420 or better light, Then you only need to loose 65 lbs.

What lights do they use now, do they use the pro tree type or the old style?

I thought that you were coaching your grandson for this. ??? (for Scorpy)

What happened with that?

I'd volunteer, but you'd be sadly disappointed... both with my weight, and my re-action time. ;rasta;

Good luck with it anyway. Let us know how it turns out.

Yes Papee, they use the ProTree. My grandson weights more than i do but i'am sure he could cut a better light.
Thanks, Chuck
