Default Testing and More Testing

Want to thank Matt and Julie for all of the hard work they have done for us over the years... Without Throttle-Up I dont think I would have half of the titles we have racked up over the yrs.. Matt has built props for me for yrs and just when you dont think it can't get any better HOLD on !! We have been testing some of their new CNC #6 props on the new boat and WOW I cant believe the speed,acceleration and handling difference we are seeing from some of the other props we have tested kinda scary. The numbers are huge and we haven't even gotten started Matt has a few more tricks he said,and I can't wait till he gets done with them. Right now we are running stock wheels right off the CNC machine not even dialed in for our boat yet. We have speed differences of anywhere from 2-4 MPH depending on what other props we have tried.

Also want to thank Rick Turmel for all his help on our new project, when it come to set-up he is the best. Can't wait to see what the Magic Man has for us when to get back to NC . When it comes to a Crew Chief they dont get any better.

So with that said make sure when we start kicking some ass you dont take it out on me, you need to take it up with Throttle- Up and Rick....We are just the messenger
