Talking Look out Reggie

My baby did pretty good for a mostly stock 22 Scarab/454 EFI at a lowly 4500 RPM. Thanks to Darin at Houston Prop for the extra speed.

And NO I didn't throw the GPS off a cliff..

Disqualified. Your GPS shows a trip leg of 3.51 miles. Kilo rules are .62/mi.

Too far. Go sip some wine with OL boy's. They need some company tonight.

Hey who said anything about Kilos? I just set it on the floor and ran balls to the wall for a couple of minutes.

I'm running a 25p Mirage Plus-Accelerator conversion labbed finished by Houston Prop. This is not computing properly but you see the numbers. Either Darin pitched it up or I need to investigate the gear reduction of my drive. It would take a 1.33 ratio drive for these numbers to make sense. I have had the speedo up to 76 w/o GPS but with everyone saying these boats can only do 62 I thought I better not mention it to avoid looking like an idiot. But now at least the GPS backs up the speedo.

Go Figure

Maybe the kilo run was invented to see which boat would be best for running kilo's?

Scott, I was in line somewhere the other day and was yakking on the phone about the race and everything. I said something about "running the kilos" and the people next to me almost broke their necks swinging around to look at me. I really wanted to mess with them some but I figured I had better not.
