Hola miami! A colleague of mine does the supercar tracks in Las Vegas (rent something crazy fast, drive on a closed course). It's spendy, but he says there's nothing like it.

I tried one once and yeah, they are legit. I regret not buying one that came on the used market a while ago - just to have something for friends to take out and maybe for fishing. Bottom line, if it gets you out on the water, it's good.
