Default 144 Mph

Just a news update for the magazine trials monday:

25 Eliminator Daytona
3.3L quad rotor Paul Phaff built engine
Imco complete drive setup with 1.14 gear, short lower unit

144MPH, the fastest single engine cat ever tested! Also the quickest accelerating boat ever tested!

Hands off to Fred Inman, Bob Leach, Paul Phaff and Bob Teague for driving that bad boy!

Thanks,
Dustin

Now this is a post that is what this board is all about!!1

FANTASTIC I agree, it takes some BIG stones to keep the throttle buried until you find it all!!!

May the force be with you!

Kurt.
