    Default Daytona - Edge - Stealth thread info revisited

    Hey guys.... I'm bringing back up an old thread for discussion in a few areas. Not trying to stir up the dirt, but am interested in correct info. So, here goes a few post.

I can't remember but someone on here can tell you about Joe Morgans cheyene, which in my opinion is the quickest and safest one since John d's and head over heals o.g. Cheyennes built by Tommy. brad
    From my understanding these are the approximate weights of some hard hitting UBF jets. Please correct or add additional info as needed:

    Whitey - 430 lbs all fiberglass. F-Bomb - 400 lbs carbon fiber and fiberglass. Usual Suspect 445 lbs kevlar and fiberglass. We all know the first two are bullets! Robbe Barrets old Pro-Gas (red) Cheyenne (from the Woody Martin stable and other history) is reported as 512 fiberglass as well as the black Cheyenne run in PLJ by Travis Reed is somewhere in that range. I think the first two also run all aluminum mills. Is this correct?

    Thanks!

    Yes alot of the real quick fast guys run aluminum blocks. Engine temp can be a problem sometimes, sleeves can move a little, only real draw backs I think?

    I really like Whiteys package, boat handles pretty good with the light engine, medium weight boat.

    Take good care of that 270 boat, gonna miss racing with that boat, I used to pit with Chris at all the races and we did alot of sharing info a few years back. you guys got a good boat!

    Default F Bomb

    F Bomb is a our stock race boat laminate schedule with a cosmetic carbon fibe cloth down the center keel. The overall weight is very close to each other if you take the driver's into consideration.
