    Thumbs up EVINRUDE V8: The Worlds FASTEST & 'BADDEST' 180mph+ Outboard

    Here is a two part video of the fastest & "Baddest" Outboard Motor ever built. Yep it's an EVINRUDE.
    It developed OVER 600hp on Nitrous & accelerated from a ZERO to it's top speed of over 180mph (Time & Time again) inside 1 kilometer on a 20' - 3 point hydro. It then went through the speed trap for another kilometer (with NO Nitrous) & decelerated within the 3rd kilometer, returned to the pits, & was out there again with the hour to do it again from the other end of the course.
    This video is an icon very impressive & should be in EVERY Outboard motor enthusiasts collection. It is no longer available BUT it should be. At least you can see it right here on BRF, the worlds premier historical racers website.

    I've never seen anything posted about Jay Fischer, he used to run a V8 in Drag racing on a Pugh and was running over 150 in the 1/4mi.?

    I know this is an old post, but thought I should post. Jay was beside me (Todd Lamb) at Athens, IL ADBA race in 1994. It was the semi finals, Jay had the V-8 jacked up. He was what appeared to be one of the fastest passes to happen with an outboard when the boat got side ways and just blew apart. The boat was trashed and I believe it even broke in half. I have the video somewhere. I need to start posting the videos to youtube.
