Default NSX idling on trailer

Shot a quick video of the boat idling on the trailer a few weeks ago. So far the the IMCO SCX drive has been bullet proof. I think we lost about 5mph WOT but I'm happy and still boating this late into the season!

How a blower motor should idle.

Very nice. What kind of speeds are you seeing and how much hp? I'm mid 90s' with 500 hp.

103mph w/ XR Upper/IMCO SC lower & 98mph w/ IMCO SCX Upper/SC lower w/ 800 HP. Sounds like your boat has a more more efficient setup at WOT. However I do pull my kids skiing (older 2 learned how to slalom this Summer) behind the boat as it currently sits. I was told this hull cavitates mid 20's with a 4 blade prop. I can tell you it doesn't with an extension box and it's current X-dimension. Super cool boat!

Just got to get that trailer fixed now Rob. Saw you dunking the AO last Friday on a three legged trailer! You going to be at the Shootout? If so, let's hook up. Pratt, Watson, Paulie, Chris, and I will be at Land's End Wed - Sun.

Trailer is fixed, smoked a bearing on the way back from LOTO a few weeks ago. We pulled over and took a "smoking wheel" off the trailer at a public golf course just west of Louisiana, MO. I thought we were going to get some weird looks working on a boat trailer in their parking lot but the golfers couldn't have been friendlier, offering tools and support. Towed the boat the rest of the way home on 5 tires

Kim and I will be at the Shootout Friday-Sunday staying at Parkview Bay. We should meet up and consume a few cold beers!

Geat number! I have a friend on his 30someith hull. He just sold 26 AO, 555, guessing 650 hp and ran 94 mph. He is shopping for a 25 Talon I/o or 28 twin I/o eliminator. Bad ass ride! Enjoy!
