I have a 25 Talon, much smaller than your eliminator, that pops on plane easily turning in. My friend has a 32 Skater with #5s' that were spinning out . We swapped drives to spin them in and he liked how the cat felt with them turning in and picked up some speed. The Skater was running right at 140mph. Dan, you need to come to Lake Murray for our DU Poker run. There will be some heavy hitters there this year. Plyburn was there last year and said hes' bringing a larger group this year. Bob

On a V it's on the outside, on cats, if the drives are mounted
closer to the tunnel, it's the inside.

If I'm wrong on this, please explain the dynamics ?
