I saw that race and Typhoon ran awesome. That boat accelerated hard down the back stretch and around turn 4 kept just walking away. When they shut down just before the finish line I thought maybe they just miscalculated the finish but then heard about the overheat problem. That boat ran awesome for it's first race and the conditions were pretty bad.
Some suggestions on the cooling problem. Do you know what kind of water pressure they are seeing? We had a problem with one where the water pickup on the nose cone wasn't passing enough water to keep water pressure up. We opened up the pickup a little more and haven't had the problem since.
Just a thought......
I know it's frustrating but it was a great showing for it's first race.
