    Default First time on the gas



    Air temp 113, timing at 32 btdc, ride plate at 4 degrees, nozzle at 5. Went 92 on gps. Et'd pretty hard, shutdown real smooth. I think I'll bump the timing up a little, then maybe loosen it up a little.

    58 -5900 rpm

    565 c.i.

    That was the first time I ran it hard. Now I'll start fine tuning. I would like to get it dialed before I put the bottle on.

    Looks a little nose high for me. The back looks very nice, but keep a very close eye on that bow. If you do put the bottle to it, I might kick the nozzle down a little. Just my observation. Be safe.

    dial it in on the bottle if that's how you're gonna race it already been there, done that this season got mine doin 100 off the bottle, then threw on the nitrous and turned wayyyyyyy to many rpms so now i'm goin back into the pump and spending another grand to pull the motor down

    I have a 19 with a mild 540 and I am guessing it runs about 90! What kind of power are you makeing? Your boat looks pretty dry!
