Thumbs up Re: revolution restoration

This is the first I saw this thread. The red hull looks great. Nice job on the restoration.

we got the drive lowers in, and should get the uppers withing a few days. the prochargers we got in a few days ago, now we are waiting on intakes and carbs. we met brownie at the miami show and since we needed larger exhaust we ordered the stainless marine gen 3, 5inch exhaust systems that should get in soon. we still arent too sure how we are going to route the center engins exhaust....especially once we try to fit three prochargers in there wit big azz intercoolers

we got the stainless marine gen 3s in today, and are gonna be shipping the props out to have hubs changed, and probably eventually labbed ( we switched the gear ratio from 1.5 to 1.35 with the new drives to the original props shouldnt be too far off). also, if anyone knows about the cig revo race boat named mr.cig id be very interested, i believe it is now rigged with triple bravos and 500s, but originally was it was rigged with number 6s and big power and ran near 110.....thanks

Stinger, can you tell me what kind of paint/color you used on your lowers? I see you painted them silver and I'm planning on doing the same, but I don't know what color to go with.

Love the revo's. Don't see too many of them around

Contact Craig Barrie at Dragon or Bud Larow at Cigarette. They build and raced Mr. Cigarette.

Craig has told me stories of how insane that boat was. They rolled it in Japan, that's when I think it was shipped back to the states and converted to a pleasure set-up.
