Default Chapparal Villain

I'm wondering how fast a 1989 Villain IV will run with 454 mags?

Thanks

That was my guess. I have a friend with 1 that swears up and down that it ran 78 on radar. I LOL every time he says it. He's had motor problems on and off for the past 3 seasons and is finally going with some 496's by the sounds of it. He bet me a C note that it will GPS at 75 minimum, but he's figuring 80. So I win as long as doesn't do 75 or above. I think I'll count that money as in the bank!

Milford .. I have '87 with 454s and haven't hit 60 yet. Mine has Alphas ('89 has Bravos), haven't played with prop sizes (ain't worth it), and my engines are not 100% tuned and running puurrrfect yet. I hit 57 on GPS, that's with full tanks and me (245lbs ) down hill (wind), with a following sea! LOL It is a beast though

78 is in his dreams .... start making plans on how you want to spend that C note hehe
