Jesus, it took a nose to tail flip for me to see anything fly off of them, those are some pretty robust jet boats. Look damn fast, all with no brakes!

Thats crazy. I had no idea boats could handle like that. I would be shitting myself racing that fast through a narrow channel in a boat with a big V8. Not saying I wouldn't like a ride

**** my car handles like **** compared to those.. boats. Those capsized crashes where the strapped in drivers are submerged look rather unhappy.

So I guess that empty space in the front of the hull is where they stuff their cojones?

The name on that green boat is fitting...good god that is nuts!

Seems like you get a bigger applause if you wreck than if you completely rape the course.

******* awesome for sure. That one clip in the crash video almost looks as if a body went flying.
