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!

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!
