A battle of Bullets! The most recent winning pass by Daryl Ehrlich in the “Problem Child” Bullet Outrigger Hydro(far lane). Keep an eye on Bryan Sanders and “Tequila Sunrise”(near lane) in the upcoming races though, it looks like he has Daryls name, number, address, and billing zip code for that matter! We’re all looking forward to some exciting races!!!
Hey all! Here is a vid of the Saturday qualifying in Augusta with Problem Child and Spirit of Texas in the near and far lane, respectively. Keep an eye out for more mind blowing passes out of all the Bullet boats as the season moves on!!!
Here are a few of the most recent passes by the Problem Child boat. We look forward to posting more great results from all of the teams running Bullet Outrigger Hydros throughout the year. Enjoy!
Alright, here is what you all have been waiting for- the newest Bullet Top Fuel Hydro! With new improvements, based of the proven design of the previous boats, we are sure that you all will be pleasantly surprised with the results. We have developed new ways to reduce unnecessary weight while simultaneously increasing rigidity in key areas and changing the way the hull flexes in others. We made these changes to ensure a competitive boat in the new shorter track (1000 ft. vs. 1/4 mile).
At Bullet Fiberglass we strive to place ourselves at the forefront of safety. As with any high powered sport, the limits of speed and power are pushed further and further every year. Our goal is not to build the “end all,” but to constantly develop ways we can improve what already is, or invent what isn’t. After completing thorough research and testing, we have made many necessary and beneficial improvements to the capsule. We have identified some areas of potential safety threats that are found on conventional capsules and designed those threats out of our capsule. Our windshield is smaller than ever before with a never before thought of mounting system which drastically reduces the chance of the windshield being hydraulically pealed apart from the capsule (a Bullet exclusive). We added a full foam supported safety seat which is custom fit to each individual driver. This new seat works on the body like a helmet works on a head, with a hard outer shell and foam liner to disperse any impact across the entire surface of the driver’s body. This greatly reduces the forces present during an impact at high speed. The new capsule incorporates a 7-point harness to fully secure the driver as well as additional head support pads to cushion any impact and once again control the extreme physical forces that are present during high speed crashes. This new capsule design is already being looked at to set the new standard for what is to be expected in the future. Stay tuned for more soon.
Here is a cool video shot durring setup of the new boat. Most boats are not well ballanced or light enough to pull off a stunt like this. Of course this is not the fastest way down the track, but it sure does look cool.
The Problem Child Team experienced a wild ride in San Angelo. Driver Daryl Ehrlich is safe and should be back to racing soon. That is great news! Unfortunately a crash at those speeds tends to destroy boats. The good news from this, however is that we can now do some R&D and continue our relentless effort to improve the Bullet Outrigger hull and capsule to be faster and safer. New updates to the capsule have already been made as well as changes to the construction of the hull to provide an even more amazing boat to the Problem Child Team. We’re anxious to pull a new one out of the mold as the team is waiting eagerly to rig the future world record holder.
This site is currently being laid up (in fiberglass terms). Give it a few days to cure and you should be quite impressed with the result.
