Yep. She's getting along nicely now.
I'll have to get a GPS in it to see how fast. I'm hoping to break 60mph with it. One day.

Well it might have been a bit more than that.
Here's a video from yesterday.
Thanks go to Luke for the filming & Damien for the use of his GPS.
Top speed 118 k/hr. That's 73mph in the old numbers.
I'm quite proud of that.

The U-95 from Wet Track Racing. (1 min 39 sec)

Awesome . No other word describes this great looking monster.

I did see it running & thought it was going quicker the before.

I did say to a young mother there it's doing around 100 k's and I wasn't far from it.

Really Paul this is getting better every time you bring her out. A true credit to you

Thanks man.
I think that's about the limit now.
When the racing starts I'll have to tie it down a bit by dropping the strut a bit more.
It's too loose for race water. So the speed will drop a bit. Great for exhibition runs though.
I love the wall of water that comes off the turn fin when I throw it into the turns at full noise.
