I saw Blake's boat run last night and the boat is so light and and balanced so well that it was aired out at what looked to be about 30-35mph! Looks good. I think when he gets the motor broken in it will really hull ass, one thing for sure is no one up here has a chance of beating him this year.

I was out last night running with Blake and his boat was running 106 in the quarter and 117topend. I am pretty sure there is another easy 3mph in the quater and most likely 120 on the top.

Ya but RPM, that was with a 27.

Add some more and pull the computer down from 109 and see what happens, and that was with 36.5ccheads ( 130 lbs ) The motor is also to low. Remember the motor isn't broken in yet either.

procomp, I am in the water, I just have been breaking the motor in this week. This weekend the motor comes up, the good oil goes in and I will start turning some bigger numbers. The rocket is SO light compaired to my old euro (which was a heavy boat) it is amazing, it pulls so much harder.

RT, those numbers were late last night with the motor up another 1/8" and with a 28ET.

Are you going to be around the water this weekend to help with some set up questions? Von is on route to my place right now with his rocket and we should all be in the water around 5:00 tonight at sewers.

Alex change of plans, I think we will all be at the garage for a while working on stuff tonight. Come by there or call. I don't think everyone will stay there all night, I have some stuff I have to do before I run again and then I am getting out of there to drink beer somewhere. I think the guy who bought my old euro might come over on sunday to run with everyone.
