Thumbs up Got to take the Top Gun for a spin!!!!

We finally had an afternoon that was nice enough to take the `Gun for a spin! The lake temp is still pretty cold and the oil temp guages only read 140 deg. but all went well I seems to idle well when it warms up and doesn`t load up.We cruised around at 3-4k and all seems fine, got on it a little but I`m afraid of getting on it with the oil temp so low. I want the Keith Eikert oil thermostats to reduce warm up time,(takes about 20 mins at these temps)
But other than that we love it!

Kurt

What exactly did cruise speed trun out to be? And in who's mind is cruise speed defined I know I cruise at 4800 rpm all the time.

We got out on the water last nite also, waterthingy, and the rest of the crew.

My wife and I spent the afternoon on the water today and had a blast The oil temp got up to 200 when I was on it for a little bit but at cruise(3500 rpm) it was around 160. Still loads up a little after extended no wake zones (fowled 2 plugs) I am going to turn the idle screws in some more. Otherwise I am very happy with the new toy although my wife likes the Baja better!

Kurt.
