To tell you the truth, we really didn't do much at all. I had the drive lowers labbed and what took the most time was installing the cameras to point on the GPS. (It still worked like crap!)

I borrowed 2 sets of props since i broke one of mine going to Holiday isle. Neither set was perfect.
Nothing else was done to the boat at all. The motors and the rest of the boat was not even touched.
If and when we decide to go to the next level, then we will need to do a bit of work.

Thank everyone for all the nice posts.!! Nice to have a problem free day!!

Did I overhear him say 20lbs? Is he talking 20lbs of boost? can they run that much boost even with race gas? seems pretty high.

Crazy fast no matter how they got there, congrats.

Maybe Dave should switch from black socks to white socks after seeing these numbers

Water pressure.
Both sets of props were not ideal. The small diameter set was making the water pressure spike due to not enough stern lift.
The larger diameter gave to much stern lift and the water pressure dropped to 20 psi.

As I said on the other site Gino, congrats huge to you!!! Those are amazing numbers and I don't care what you are running fuel wise or anything else, you put up a massive number and you are the man!!!! Everyone knows your setup so why would your level of fuel, etc. matter, I always came from old school where you run what you bring. Rumor has it there are going to be some more huge numbers this spring so I just hope everyone keeps the spirit of safety in tact in the search for the next number. Good luck as you continue to dial in Gino and crew and please stay safe!!!!
