Shane, wasn't the Shadow designed for either a.) SMALL BLOCKS or b.) OUTBOARDS? I think the Chris Craft and the Conquest were designed for BIG BLOCKS.Originally Posted by Shane
I believe very first time a Shadow was run, T2x and George hit 81mph powered by small block Mercs. In fact, I believe that was when the open class record was 68mph. If memory serves, T2x was driving and George was crawling all over the boat looking at how the water came off of the hull...simulataneously scaring the crap out of T2x who kept thinking George was going to fall off the boat!
But, the experts here can fill in the blanks.
