Default LOTO Shootout specs question...

Is there a website or anything to define what is allowed for each class??? Amazed at the amount of classes but have seen nothing which states the equipment that may be used for each...

For example I am thinking of changing out a bravo setup for a SSM III. Would assume that puts me another class no?

It's pretty simple, do you have stock black merc power? Do you have blue motors w/o blowers, do you have blowers or turbos, do you have nonmerc NA motors, eggbeaters or do you have turbines.

How long is your boat and is it a cat or V or pontoon.

Thats about it. You want to run 2000 HP through a bravo, more power to you, you run in the same class as boats with 6's or surface drives.

The only thing that's a little cloudy, is
That the " F" class has a few more engines
in it than just the HP500 anymore.

In years past, I've seen them throw 525SC's
in against 525EFI's

575's, 600's, 700's are kind of in their own deal.

Otherwise, it's just like Mike said.

Default shootout

a blower engine is in a different class than a naturally aspirated motor, 525sc would be in different class than 525efi.

Last year, they put a 525SC boat in with the
"F" class boats.

I guess their thoughts were that they were
similar on published power.

You are correct they put me (1999 PQ w/525sc's) in with a 1999 Slingshot with 500 efi's, and by the way he beat me by 6 or 7 mph
