    Default Flying the Gullwing



    Rideplate @ 5 degrees, nozzle @ 7, backcut shoe .030 below keel, 3" nozzle insert. Still riding pretty high but went 98.9 mph on gps. Just added a 1 degree down wedge but didn't get a chance to run it. It has been my goal when I started this project to go 100 mph without nitrous. Man, I'm close. 1 more mph then the nitrous goes on. I'm open to suggestions on how to get the nose down.

    Try 4 & 6 or 4 & 5*

    Nice numbers. What are you running for power and RPM's. Nice goal btw I'm shooting for the same thing.

    It's a 565 BBC with 1050 dominators turning 6100. I don't know what it weighs but it's a pretty lite layup.

    Most of that sound's familiar, you just have the dizzy in the wrong place

    565, 1050, 98 mph , 6,100 (mpd "b" cut ss) act's like an A+

    Down wedge might make more lift, reduce nozzle angle degree and go from there.

    Its easier to settle it down than it is to loosen up.

    Great pics and she looks great Rich. Congrats! Go tell Skip you want to race him.

    Geez that thing is flying. Did you have any bottom work done to it, or have you ever checked it for straightness? Reason I ask is that I've got a lot of hook in my 19. Mine rides flat even with full diverter. Then again my shoe is even with the keel. Never tried hanging it that low.

    Rich,
    Boat looks good and I'm sure you'll hit your 100+ goal soon. Keep the pics coming and be safe.

    Shut down has always been smooth. Never done anything scary.

    Bottom hasn't been touched since I've owned it, but it is straight. No hook at all.

    With 1 degree down wedge. No other changes. It's not flying quite as high. Same mph [98.8]. I have a 2 degree I might try next.
