exactly, but then you should have the weight according to that HP.

1HP = 4,5kg that's the rule.

If everybody knows that a 525 makes 560HP so I can not calculate my weight on 525HP....

As I understand it the foot-throttle,Canopy, SeatBelt rules are for the 2008 season.

May be Sheltie will chime in on the whole story of the penalties. Everything else is here say until a ruling is made on there appeal of DQ.

Read the P1 rules and you will that this is not OK for Super Sport.
I would think a foot throttle would be a disadvantage?

Canopy might help in speed and or safety.

Seat belts prob because of canopy



I bet ya Fountain is getting the pick of the 525's that have the better #'s

Advertised HP ratings for all motors, marine and auto have a percentage +/- that is the allowable actual hp range. I think its like 10%. Which on a 525 is a big spread.
