Boat Girl, I appreciate the help and once again I already have questioned SBI directly.
I think my question was answered on another thread by DaveP. and it was kind of in line with what I was starting to think anyway.
"Welcome NYSpeeddemon to OSO.
As for motors in SBI......everyone knows I am not a fan of SBI or Mr. C who runs the show.
But, I will tell you in conversation with an SBI racer yesterday, one F-2 Boat in SBI is running 625+ per side and still could not catch the winning boats. SBI also has had a dyno for over a year and they still can't get it / or don't want it to work.
There is nothing wrong with racing with only 20 something boats at a race - at least make sure everyone in every class is evenly matched. Lap times & speeds don't lie."
