    Exclamation Mercury Racing 450R in Action during Performance Testing!

    Here's a quick compilation of video I shot while performance testing the Mercury Racing 450R in Nashville. There were many boats there, and many more videos will be posted shortly as I go through them.

    I just can't get over how intense and brutal the acceleration is, even on such a large boat. The 450R is just as hardcore as it gets for power now. The Midnight Express also impressed me with how well it handles. It turns like a boat half its size. That day we ran close to 80 with ten people aboard and full gear.

    Please check here and on the S&F YouTube channel for more videos!

    I,m sorry but why does it seam all the horsepower gets all swallowed up ,I get they make bigger heavier boats and put 5 motors on it and go oo la la so with 10 people and 2250 hp and maybe 80 mph ,I quess sounds ok ,but I want to see a 450 r on a 21/22/23 cougar ,skater ,eliminator ,or my rapid craft twister and see the results ,but who would put a 75k rigged motor on a 10k boat lol

    The article with the 400s on the 59 cig was saying 720 mile range with the 1,000gallon onboarding tank. Not as bad as I would have thought
