Something isn't right. With 35" prop and 1.5 gears
3000rpm = 66mph not 100
4000rpm = 88mph with 0 slip not 125.

Marty very good, notice my edit? I realized that I transposed the number of the paper that I wrote them on but when I made the correction on the post I corrected them backwards . Thanks for pointing it out. Otto

Fed Exed the props to merc to get cut to 16 inch diamter. I didnot know that all props are 18 inch diameter when casted then cut to your desired size. I thought they were cast as the size they were sold as.

Otto, I saw those motors at Kurts over the summer. Those are some bad ass blower motors.

Kurt just quietly goes about building some incredible motors. Good luck with them.
