here's a good one, he will sell it without motors or drives
Definitely a sweet boat.....with 557s and 1:35 gears the acceleration must be frightening!

Unfortunately I broke a blade that day so we put on 38s and bump the limiters up to over 7000 for Saturday.

I definitely don't profess to be in the same top end category as Bill or Gino but Tommy and Grant definitely have it running well......going from the throttle body injection to the multi port injection that Bill is running gave me a huge bump in torque. The extra 3lbs of boost didn't hurt either!
Got it
thnx BIG Daddy
