    Default tail question

    I've been lookin at all the race pics of the daytonas and daytona style tunnels, my question is, why do they not have a tail???
    just wondering if I have too much tail, no diverter, just a droop and a wedge, heres a couple pics

    it depends on many factors but the short answer is this:
    a hull that generates a lot of lift doesn't require much, if any, positive nozzle angle to run cleanly down the track. The high rooster tail is a result of positive nozzle angle. Boats like the Eliminator Daytona generate a lot of lift due to their hull design and don't need positive nozzle angle in most cases to run fast. In fact, most of the fast and light Daytonas run negative nozzle angle to keep from climbing out of the water at high speeds and doing a back flip.
