Default Hot Boat Mag -Dragon review...WOT=86mph?

I thought I heard this boat could be 100mph with 525's.

Wrong props maybe?

Anyone else see this?

I don't think I'll be in line for the stock options.

You guys read to fast..... It said conditions ROUGH!...... Soo 86mph for a boat that does 100 in ideal water is pretty good i think!!

I dont believe anything that I read in Hot Boat, anymore. The articles are bland, uninformative, and too many errors, for the most part. Jeff

Cool Re: Hot Boat Mag -Dragon review...WOT=86mph?

In all fairness, I will tell you that the the boat used in the Hot boat mag is a three digit boat with the right props, for the test they ran a set of labbed bravos which I still got 98.7 with a 1/2 load of fuel. Everyone that runs this boat thinks they have to trim it out and thats when the speed numbers show slower. When they ran the boat for the test they over trimmed it. Everyone makes this mistake with that boat. I have photos of when it is tested on GPS. Boat runs faster with less trim,,,, PERIOD!
