What's with all the *****-footin'? I completely understand it takes POWER to navigate dry land with an airboat, but where's the WOT hair-raising speed?

Ok, Ok, not everything is a race...that guy was just being easy on a public lake.

These may be more your style doc!

Sorry, small.

Hard to see, but near as I can tell, he has a Kenne Bell supercharger on that animal... you can hear the whine... regardless, I expected the guy would eventually open the throttle and let the beast eat!

Thanks for the racing vids... very cool and very fast!

He was babying that boat. Trying to show that the 6 blade prop helped move a large party barge.
The racing vids at Hawg Waller is not far from here. My buddy Jr. has kin working there. It's a mud run park where the off road trucks and mud boggers play and they also hold airboat races.
