            Hydros are awesome.
            You need some serious brass to climb into one of those widowmakers

              Flat bottoms are much more squirrely than hydros....the biggest brass was the top fuel flat class which was banned back in the late seventies. IMO the only brassier action is carrier pilots.
              My Bro with His Landy motored Hondo unblown gas flat back in the day. 426 hemi punched over to 522 inches, dual Scintilla-Vertex mag ignition, dual 1500 cfm Holleys on Weiand hi-rise manifold. Record holder to the first start rules change.

              Mike also piloted Gene Deaver's top fuel hydro,, Deaver hull with Kieth Black motor that He 'shoe'd' to a record 206 mph @ Firebird in November 1976. The days before capsules.

                Use to hold boat drags at a small local lake..... until somebody got killed. :(
                Hows that for cruel irony? Grow up racing on large bodies of water only to die in some oversize puddle in the middle of a cow pasture.
                Those guys got balls regardless of class.

                A TF Hydro will do 260mph+!!

                  Absolutely the nutziest thing to see live, drag boats are!
                  Yep, 260 plus from standing starts!
                  In Brother Mike's day the start rules were 275 feet run up to lights, then it went to 75 feet & now since going to counter rotating dual V drives, standing start is the rule....the boats literally jump up & out of the water.

                  My Brother Mike in BFH, Blood, Sweat & Nitro, @Bakersfield, 1977.
                  He ran 206 mph in 1976 in World Finals @ Firebird. Hemi ala Kieth Black.
