since then there have been other bottom mods made that give the same effect, I suspect this boat won't be as fast as Helmuts other one. But who knows, this one has a STRAIGHT bottom.
you know I had that impression when i first drove it. when i had my other stv a bone stock 96' 260 with newer 814141 rods and weisco's would go 115. Then when i got this boat it had a bone stock 95' 260 with the early style mahle pistons and big 5250 rods it would only go about 111. then i went and cut some exhaust chest & rod slots and put the svs on and it did 119. 119 is what my other boat did with this same particular 15x32 lab cleaver. the good 14.5 x 32 double lab got destroyed that I went 120's with. I think I have the motor about where i want it now with the new lighter rotating assemby. I should pick up a few r's and get 120's with this prop. I just bought like 6 lab props to play with from 32 -34 but first things first. I just want to see this boat out perform my other stv with the same prop and engine setup before I go changing props. weathers been holding me up
Talked to a guy at merc raceing yesterday,depending on rpms he could make me a lab cleaver that would get me 4 to 7 mph ,yea rite,guess how much?im haveing the same problum up here ,weather,just got the cleaver prop i bought from racemen back,try it if you want,cant wait to try it myself,the Srx works great,but rpms are little high,at 85-86 hundred maybe more,hard to look,see ya at the romp,l
