    I'm not sure how to take this comment after all that pfaff stuff.. I'm going to assume negitive. I'll agree in that the boats loose and not taking a perfect set, lease thats how it feels to me. I'm working on getting it to settle down. This is my first rodeo and i have no experience with settup. I was just really happy that i could stand on it for more than a few seconds.

    Shaun, Looks like the boat has a good ride hight! You did make a lot of changes at one time! So be careful in pushing the boat to it's limits! WT

    GPS shows a max speed of 96 MPH a couple pass's but was more average around 94 MPH. The motor looks like it's only spinnin 5400 RPM, i need to get it up to 5800. When launching the boat has a porpose and then seams to settle in. The rpms bounce maybe 4-5 times before it settles and runs. I didnt get to do as much testing as i would have liked to do.

    It has nothing to do with Pfaff. Your boat is squirrely and starts to rock hard back and forth and you won't lift. Then you drive right over the top of somebody's rollers and keep your foot in it while your 3 boat lengths behind. Your poor pump is not real happy right about now.

    Chris the orange Daytona runs hard. He is squeezing it. I would say that it is a low to mid 9 second deal.

    It was running pretty good, takin a nice set. I raced him both nights. The first night the water was ok and he pulled away from me hard. I had a hard time keeping the pump loaded. The second night we ran and nobody was on the water because of how cold it was and it was kinda sprinkling a bit. That run we were about even.. Started alittle above fox's and raced almost to the bend. He was only 3-4 boats infront of me by then. I saw his boat up close while waiting for it to settle down and talked with him a bit. There was no NOS unless it was well hidden and he was lieing to me because i asked.

    What impellor are you running an A Hi helix? I could only get my 496 to turn it about 5000 went to a B- and hit 5850-5900. And cavitation went away on holeshot! It would have been nice to of tried an A- to a B just to see what it would have done! WT

    Your right, the boat does chime.. It did that even with the old motor/setup. I've been told thats pretty standard with a v-bottom running higher speeds in waters that are not perfect. I dont know if i would call it squirrely, the boats always gone straight and has never wanted to make a turn on me (not to say it wont one day).

    I know the rollers your talking about.. and it was stupid i'll admit that. The guy in that daytona was impaitiant, wanted to run, i told him earlier that night i had to wait for smooth water because the boat was not quiet there yet. I stood on it and didnt plan to stay in it that long.

    Were you in that blown tunnel deal riding passanger? Looked like you...

    AT Stainless A. When i had the lip cut off the guy at R&D measured it and said it was closer to an A+ than an A. Which i guess is inbetween an A and AA?
