Jasper Drag Boat Blows Over

Forums:

Check out this video from the 2010 Jasper Boat Drag Races. The driver blows over his boat after the finish line. I wonder if he let off the gas and the outboard trimmed out due to the hydrostatic pressure again the lower unit? I wonder if bungee cords holding down the mid section might have prevented this accident? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adnsDz0qAjQ

those DR 20's always seem to be on the verge of blowing over...they look like a scary ride to me!

I think it`s all about setup and driving talent in those boats. I have seen several run into the 120`s with no problem and seen some very unsafe or blow over at 100.

I had one of those, these boats are intended to run super flat,they haul ass unless you trim them to far up..yeah thats why they go over,best drag boat I ever ran and safe too.
