    Default NJBA racers that ran the Finals....

    ..... how did the clocks compare for everyone? At the World Finals, our MPH was down a few, but our ET was really close to what we ran at the last NJBA race. Just curious what everyone else's results were...

    dave, questions first; what would be really close? and did you change anything on your boat between ming and f'bird?

    btw, great job getting to the final!

    Bob, no changes at all. We were actually almost a tenth quicker to the half, but slower in the second half of the track. In the quarter, we were only about 5 hundredth's slower overall. That said, I don't have any past data and only 2 races with the blown deal, so I might be a bunch quicker back at NJBA with the additional driving experience. That's why I'm wondering how much difference others may have noticed....

    Yea Jon, I was reminded my signature may not have been accurate after I blew up my second engine!!! Was great to meet you in Phoenix. Hope you haul your boat up to a NJBA race and come have some fun with us.

    I'm thinking jets and flats get affected tottally different from bako to fbird. As the weekend went on alot of the jets suffered. It may have been the water getting aerated by the hotlapping or something, not sure but most of us had to step things up from Thursday going into Saturday quite a bit. I went from 9.02, 9.06, 9.08 to 9.20 and had to use a 1.5 second nitrous blast to run the number later in the weekend. Something was changing other than air conditions but I dont know what it was. still had fun but its frustrating chasing your ass all weekend long. i thought the reaction time clocks were very consistant.

    May be related, don't know for sure, if you run a jet close to the bottom at WOT, the engine can literally pick up 100 RPM or so (were talking 6" of water over river rock),
    my thought was always aerated water from the bubles (oxygen) pulled from the rocks, I also know that when you go from fresh water (deep) to salt water (deep) the boat will pick up MPH with the same RPM (on GPS),
    pretty weird, always assumed it was the "harder" water, is it possible the water warmed up substantially during the day? Could it also be bubbles from the bottom?, kind of an interesting thread...

    flats are also affected. look at taf numbers from f'bird, compared to red bluff or chow (both of which are very similar to ming).

    It can be hard to run there!! If the boats wet you can loose quite a bit. Not that we have anything to talk about but we had a very hard time getting the boat to run on the big end at F'bird as opposed to Bako!!!!!!
