That is the real reason he bought the Skater in the first place. He already had the engines handled.
I built a set of 598's with Quadrotor Whipples (1193 hp) for his last boat.

Jon, no offense taken. Like I said, I think something is wrong with either the brake or the water supply to the brake. It should not heat up that fast. I'm trying to upload the video, since you can see in the video the brake temp and how high and how quick it shoots up. Like I said, Stuska says not to get it over 130*. We were over that all day. At the beginning of the pull it was at 90* and by the end of a sweep it was over 160* And that is in a quick sweep. There is no way we could hold it or pull lower. The owner of the shop is supposed to get with Stuska to see what the deal is.
What are those guys using for a dyno to pull the diesels and to get down real low?

Eddie,

Tom is using a Stuska brake on his dyno also.
No problem providing data 1000 rpm and up.
Dyno's up to 2000 hp that I'm aware of

Anyways no problem holding it where ever needed.


Talk to ya later
Jon

Here are a few updated pics. Just finally got one in the boat to stay. I'll bet I put it and out 10 times. If I could make it that far in real life, I'd be good.
Had a bunch of interference with everything. When I moved one thing, something else would hit. The engines sit very low in the boat. It actually doesn't need the scoops. How cool is that to have a 39' V with over 1200 hp a side and have it all under the hatch. If there were somewhere else to get enough air to the engines, we would probably lose the scoops and put a nice big sunpad on it. Anyway, these pics were taken a few days ago before all of the rigging was complete. I have a few more pics to add when I get time. Hope ya'll enjoy. Thanks, Eddie.
