Here is one that was just back from paint in late Aug after the shootout. This one had trip 675's.

Also, check out the paint. Ratical graphics has a technique where they put water droplets in the paint and it looks just like real water. The first time I saw it, I thought the boat had sat out and there was some dew/water on it, but it was the paint. Pics don't do it justice.

What are you seeing for speeds after the chillers? Do you know what they make for power now and did you keep the same pulleys

They said they add a 100 horsepowerper motor. But we havent run the boat hard and working on some props. The boat is only running 3lbs of boost. We are talking about bumping it up to 6lbs. Also so you have anymore pics of that boat.

What was the top end on this boat, and any more pics. Rod painted my 04 4300 and did an excellent job. Those water droplets he did on my Xcess Wetness on the sides turned out excellent. Great looking B.T.
