Thumbs up 32 Skater Agitator 1st Day Testing

1st day on the lake went like this. boat ran great still testing props ran 132 mph w/17x31 3 blade cleavers 1.25 gears @6300 rpm at 3/4 throttle had to back off because of 35psi water pressure. will post results after water pressure problem is corrected. i think it has a 140 mph pass in it. runs a lot better with 1200hp blower motors then with 650hp small blocks seeya!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats, its been a long time coming. Let me know if you need some water pressure control valves. My buddy has several made up and they worked great on the Carrera. Cheap and easy to do.
