Many 40-50's running turbines with 1800 hp with no problems.Might want to look at a different drive builder. Just my 2

Hopefully we will finally land a larger more efficient hull this Winter and partake in some of the out of State rain deer games in the Spring,that would be fun!

This heavy rig with 11% slip factor is set up more as a drag boat at this point and is out of hull in the mid 150s not in the same league as the big boys.

Tuesday's failure was a snapped prop shaft ,not an explosion.

Craig Colabella is one of the best #6 guy's we know and is keeping us out every week.

Craig also agrees that #6s are not designed to handle the sustained torque that some of us are throwing at our rigs on a weekly basis especially on a heavy less efficient hull like ours.
Sorry for the high jack Gino!

I've been part of some big projects and I've seen them very close, but they're not the same. Certainly not the lag of the old days if done right, but its still dependent on the airflow through the exhaust.

I'm 1 person who never knocks turbos. They make great power and are great products, just anything, there's good and bad setups, but when done right, they're hard to compete with.

Really ?? Care to compare dyno sheets from 1,500 to 3000 Rpm's ?? Can race from complete stop or 35 mph if your worried about your drive. Guess I need to correct yestedays post too,..............Boost comes on a 1,300 rpm's

So if your throttling the waves less than 1,300 rpm's I guess you do have a problem. Like I said Tom has it figured out and well aware most other's don't. There is no Lag, ZERO, NONE.


So care to compare Dyno sheet's from 1,500 to 3,000 ?


30' Single Engine Checkmate,
6.4:1 compression, 21 lbs of boost ..... Boat, Rocks !!
#6 Drive 1.24 gear
29 p Prop


Cheers
Jon

Good to hear he defyed the laws of physics, good for him. I've never had a dyno hold any power below 3000rpm, but I can tell you I've been in a few boats that required WOT at 1200rpm to get the boat going without ventilators in the prop areas.

Ha I knew it too Gino. if 1850 a side isn't enough........ you can super size it with 3150 HP a side. (below)
