    Is that this hull, or a different one being built?

    I know they are building a drag boat to run in the Lucas Oil series. Those picture's are the first I have seen of the boat.
    The one that's here in Florida is a RGR/Monty Racing powered outboard called , Twisted.

    Is it a one-off outboard? What do the RGR V-8 Outboards start as?

    Hey , lighten up , it's only taken me 4 month's to reply ...

    The motor started out as a "refrigerator" 250 - 300 Johnrude . Bout the only thing left that came in an original motor is the block , crank and rods . The lower is a factory F-1 unit from days gone by ...



    Two E-Tech throttle bodies sectioned and welded together ...



    They said , A stock mid and clamp is about 125 lbs. If you can make us something close to 40 lbs , we'll take it ... This as it sits , came in @ 13 lbs ....



    Weather is starting to cool off here ...

    Heartbreaking the owner has passed away and the boat is parked, I have an opportunity to get it back and continue this record attempt. Currently looking for sponsorship or new ownership. Contact me or Monty racing if interested.
