    fast is the other half.

    Hull----1975 Miller semi-v
    Weight bare----unknown. 600-700lbs
    Engine----509" BBC, 10.6:1, single Dom 1050, 150 shot
    Power----685hp @6000, 830hp @ 6100 w/n20
    Pump-----Berk JC suction, JG bowl, ss b+, shoe, rideplate, Older model PD
    Top speed so far---87 mph @ Pyramid Lake, elevation approx 1800' + heat, + humidity = more like 2500' elevation.

    Still haven't been to the river, or any lakes at lower than 2000'+ elevation. Haven't hit the button yet either.
    I'd be pretty stoked to crack 90 mph @ the river or with setup changes. Mid 90's on the button would be pretty cool too.
