    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!

    Awesome video. So has anyone put up speed differences between the 400s and 450s? Curious to see the performance difference in that cigarette

    Iíve read it was 10 mph. Ran 72 w/400Rís, 82 w/450Rís. That to me is incredible for 39,000 lbs of boat.
    A problem is only a problem when viewed as a problem...
