I havn't seen that report before. I have seen several others that I believe were done with the same boat. I believe that it had a supercharged 502. In the Hot Boat test it ran 98. In another it also ran 89 (I now see that it's the same page with a different address). The builder said that they had it up to 107 with a shortie while spinning the motor to over 6k. He also said that 600 was at the prop, so the engine was making more than that. And there is no stock 502 (as reported in the HB test) that will spin over 6k! One thing for sure, is that I can't figure out the difference in speed between the boat test and the Hot Boat test. The props and setup have been the same, so it must be the driver. Thanks for the link! Unfortinatly, I still don't know how fast this thing is going to go!

Man they are saying 89 with a 310hp motor? Man that is flying, or did I miss read that?

Yea, you GOT IT WRONG! That's the standard power, the optional engine had 600hp.
