Default 4 stroke Tohatsu 40/50 wins Augusta

This is the 40/50 hp 4 stroke tohatsu racing a circle duckboat race on 5/25/2014 in Augusta, Arkansas. The class was for ALL 50hp STOCK motors, ZERO mods on a "fishing" boat, no race boats allowed to run with fishing/hunting rigs.. It was on a 1552, 100 gauge boat.
The 4 stroke won easily even after he spun it out trying to turn. Now that's impressive.
That same rig won the 800 foot drag race against all stock comers. The noise you hear that sounds like the motor is cutting out is the rev limiter. On an empty boat, he ran a 16 pitch Yamaha prop. Top speed was mid to upper 40's. Hole shot and power out of the corners won this race. Watch again, the other boat never got off plane and still got beat.
I helped set this rig up a few weeks ago when we tested the motor, that boat, and the alweld.

Now who has the fastest 40/50hp stock motor on the market?
