Default 28 Skater lays down 124.4 MPH RUN!

A good buddy of mine laid down a run this Sunday on Long Island with his 28 Skater with stock 2.5's of 124.4 MPH! Now THAT is FAST!

Hold on now, if thats Charlies 28 Skater I thought he was running 2.5's worked by Diamond Marine? Regardless thats fast as hell for any 2.5 whatever the rpm on that boat. Thats impressive!!! 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?

The boat is that fast, but the motors aren't STOCK as per say out of the box.

34's at 8k with 1.87 gears would do it, thats about 10% slip. Need a lot of power out of those 2.5's to do it though.

How unstock are they ? How does that effect longevity ?

If you are comparing 2.5 race motors to other stock outboards they are not very reliable. If you are comparing them to BBC with Blowers they seem to be normal. I dont know what he is turning his motors on that Skater but 2.5's reguarly turn 8000-8500 with out a lot of headache.
