Default 26 Redline at 143 MPH

We have been doing some testing with some changes to a new lower unit from IMCO for the SCX4. It has really paid off. We are still working but so far the improvements have been incredible. Sorry for the shaky video but I went to turn on the GoPro and realized that I left the Flash Card on my desk So we shot it from the back seat with a cell phone. It's a little windy and really cold back there at 140+!!

We are running a GT Performance 1200 with, obviously, an IMCO SCX4, and a Hering 16.5"X38 - 18 degree prop on 93 octane pump gas.
