    I can't say about this site specifically, but I'm guessing facebook and other social media sites have had an effect.
    I know for a fact that one of my other boating sites has been almost destroyed by facebook.

    Hopefully with the boating season winding down in some areas there will be more postings because the boats don't need as much attention when they're not being used.

    And I know that there are many, many projects underway because I get tons of PMs with questions from the ones working on turbocharged stuff.

    Come on guys post that sh-t up. Winter is almost here and this place is really going to be dead.

    Default Where are all the racers?

    I'm a v-drive guy and I have to come to the jet forum for any kind of talk about drag boat racing. The v-drive forum is nothing but ancient old flats and cruisers now - yuck.

    Winter has always been slow around here. Looks like the thread "views" are still up... More listeners, less talkers, I guess... Dunno. Perhaps fingers too numb to pluck on the keyboard

    Cam drive fuel pump, supposed to flow way more than I need. Just didn't want a noisy electric pump.

    Fuelab Fuel pressure regulator. Didn't skimp on this. Two -10 inputs and one -10 return. Needed something that would flow enough for the cam drive pump.
    Didn't much care for it's "European" look at first, but after a bit of research it just turned out to be the right part at the right price.
    Once it was in my hand I was very pleased with the quality of the unit.

    Parts are piling up, but no engine yet, therefor no build thread. Look out for one in the "On the dyno" section within the next few weeks.
