Hey Craig, the name is just air density. Here is a screenshot of my phone...this app is the last one.
Thanks Glenn, will check that out, remember looking a while ago and nothing came up, I'm guess developers working out what they can do with some of the tech in iPhones now days.

Unfortunately we didn't get a video of Tyler's record run.
Danny we missed you on Sunday. That beast sounds so sweet.
See you hopefully in April

Thanks to Donna, Glenn and John.
Not only do you all put in the effort to put this event on, but help anyone that needs it. It is much appreciated by myself and everyone that attends. My favorite event of the year even if I’m unprepared.
So much to learn at these trials. And it’s fun watching everyone working at it as well.
I had a bit too much damage to my rudder set up on the twin to stick around for Sunday. although the gas mono was right at the record I chose to drive home Saturday night. Got home at 4:40 am. I’ll get it ready for Huntsville and hopefully can make it up there. This boat is real close too. All up to me.
Congrats to all the record setters and all who tried for that matter. sorry I missed your run Tyler, I’d love to have seen it.
Grims....you guys tried your butts off last year and in Huntsville and it shows. Awesome cornering and driving! 16.?? Isn’t far away.

Butter cookie, fried food, guitars and some boats. fun fun!

I also forgot to mention Martins 20 hydro record set mid-week. 16.1 sec. is bad fast for any boat but for a 20 boat that is RIDICULOUS!!!! Great run Martin.

Congrats to all the record setters! Great to spend the week with the fast folks! Nothing like watching Glenn break in a new 12 motor and then run multiple runs in the 100 mph neighborhood and the be able drive it back to shore. Impressive to say the least!
Thank you Donna and Glenn for your hospitality and friendship, one of my favorite weeks of the year!

Here is a great video my buddy Jason made of the Grim’s boat. It’s pretty stinking awesome!


I agree with Danny, it IS awesome. Apologies for the lack of any *actual* sounds from the boat...I made all of that up with stock audio files, THEN had to reverse the direction on all of the audio clips, because they were originally recorded stereo L/R...but we run R/L!

In the part where the boat "roars" by really close...there's actually sounds from a brontosaurus yell, lion (African and Sea), an offshore racing yacht, and a rail-dragster! I have some actual audio from last year. If I get the time, I'll add it and replace the video.

I always enjoy being around you guys. Model boaters are good people, except for my best little buddy GQ, who's just stinking awesome.
