I got the drive the new Supra SA450 this past weekend.
This is the first SA built in Tennessee, it was shipped out to Wisconsin for WWA Worlds that then continued on out to Merced, CA.

It pulled the INT Western Regionals and I was fortunate enough to drive it while the designer of the boat rode along and told me everything I wanted to know about it.

As you would assume the SA450 has a 450hp motor, the Corvette LS3. I have this same motor in my 2012 Axis A22, but it felt to me like it had more horses than mine. It felt so light and nimble, it was a really FUN boat to drive. Lots of the competitors that rode this weekend, also rode behind it at Worlds. They all LOVED the wake at worlds, but they were slightly less than stoked about it at the private lake in Calif. The only thing I can figure why is because the private lake was only 7-8ft deep down the middle. Probably the only complaint I had about the boat was the position of the throttle. There's a little step in the side panel where you rest your arm. Where you would expect to feel the throttle, gives you a little ring pucker when you reach down and it's not there. It's a little lower and I had to look down to find it the first time I had to stop.

Great boat, needs deeper water. I loved it!

I was a little busy at the comp, but I got a couple pics for you all.
