They are 2.5's. I understand that he does have mild porting and that is it. Stock heads, efi, electronics etc. It is ALL ABOUT SET UP! And let me tell you, this guy eats. sleeps and breathes set up. I don't think if we took half of us OSO members and combined the time we spend working on our boats it would equal what Charlie spends on his.

Oh, BTW, T2x was there.

He has run these same motors for 3 seasons, same rods, pistons, heads etc. Runs countless poker runs and fun runs and holds it WFO the whole time at each event. This guy knows how to set up a Skater, make it fast AND stay together.

How are you feeling?
Back in 1995/1996 Reggie started driving Skaters when he had Skater lay up his race boats. i.e Drammamine, INSTIGATOR etc. Don't forget Pat Patel's old FOUNTAIN/MERCURY Cat.....

I would like to know how he would do side by side with T2x being he is running right close to that but with 300x's. Meaning would the 300's pull ahead having more accelaration power, or would the 2.5's rev faster?
T2x's boat is fast, but not that fast. The 2.5's have a greater power to weight ratio.

He has 260 electronics on his 280 blocks which works real well, Diamond Marine does some of his work.

Diamond power head's, 15" mid's, time spent dialing, and 260 electronic's on 280 head's as Ryan stated. The boat is real fast and he does represent alot. Congrats Charlie.

When I first seen who made the post I was asking How the heck did he take his boat out . I have to admit in that boat at that speed I'd be scared

T2x watched......but my boat was not there....... We're waiting for Charlie to finish ...and then we'll start....... He has set a very formidable speed..... no doubt..... time to get to work.

Biggest speed improvement for Charlie seemed to be the kilo props.

WOW! That's impressive. I could only get 120 out of my old 21' Lightning(Skater copy) with 2.5's(offshore race 15")
