And here's you getting your ride David. 1200hp, 12', 600kg, perfect power to weight!

The turn at the end the start straight was awsome, like you hit summat and get deflected left.

Aparently they can peak at 5G in a turn. It certainly felt like it.

All over too quickly tho'. Course is set to last no more than 60 secs, and just one go wasn't enough time to take it all in, would have liked about ten goes!

As for 'how does it handle like that', I guess 1200hp throwing water in one direction, gives a fair kick in the opposite direction. no rudder or skegg, all steering done purely on directing the water jet.

What makes you say it isn't GM based? (Chevy)

Not ya average mono tho', is it codders!
I wonder how a suitably set up cat would turn with jet drive & a 2000hp per ton power to weight ratio.

No doubt you're about to tell me.
