[QUOTE]Originally posted by Goodfella Why is it that the SBI factory II boats are 10 MPH faster than any APBA factory II boat?

108? Yeikes!
Our boat ran 87 mph for the last two years & we have quite a few checkered flags. It just goes to show you, it's not always how fast your boat goes...............

I think a lot has to do with x dememinon if you will remember apba has lower the x dememinon on all boats to slow them down thats how fast a boat will run with the right x demenion

Did anyone see the GPS?

SBI allows as much cubic inches and torque as you can make. Just keep the HP under 470 at the prop.
