    Default tech inspections

    As many of you know I with the help of some great guys (kdub and the general) are putting together a 9 second TE boat that will compete in next years SDBA schedule. I would post pics but I don't think a pile of parts and materials would do it for you guys. Anyhow on to the subject at hand i am looking into all of the correct safty gear I will need as I would like to do it right and one time. Even though I will primarily run SDBA and SITC. We might get a wild hare a tow it to an NJBA race or SLDBA OR? I am not talking driver gear what I mean is the stuff for the boat. I have read thru the lucas rule book many times spoke with ken dollar and had an in depth conversation with BP298 (congrats on the win again Bob). But please forgive me I would like you racers take on this. I wan't to breeze thru tech where ever we might race. Thank you Scott King, This is a jet with a pop off


    Ps is the suction piece, intake, bowl, ride plate cradle, HPH and diverter considered underwater gear or will crhoming it be ok.

    What motor are you gonna be running? If you are running that monstrosity in your avatar you will need more things such as a fuel shut off (that needs to be between the main fuel pump and the injectors and the shut off valve must be accessible in front of the drivers seat. Unless you are running a lenco you will need a driveline cover and flywheel cover. Battery cut off (with easy access from the side of the boat), kill switch (that pops off if you move any more than 18" in either direction), rope deflector there are a couple other necessities that I can't recall at this moment. IF I remember I will edit my post, otherwise I am sure someone else will fill in the blanks.

    The racing organizations will have slight differences in requirements. As I have seen how most of the clubs are run, The NJBA has the least amount of changes, of requirements, to the boats, over the years. First read the rule book, and if you see something you need help with, let me know. I would be glad to help. Also, know that we welcome all out of state racers. I think we run a tight ship, without to much drama. I believe our jet boats are the finest in the country. Maybe you can bring our boys a little something? feel free to contact me anytime 707-864-0332 Joe

    chrome'n anything pump related is a bad idea, hides cracks

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.
