seems to me that with as much diverter movement as these boats seem to have, a foot controled diverter would be the shit!
Every time I see one of these videos, I wonder why there's not more people doing this. Seems like the same 4-5 boats, Looks like it would be a blast to compete in this style racing. Is it because of location and that once the snow pack mellts there's not enough water to run in?
Thanks for the videos. Was not a good weekend for us as we went to cheer on Ryan and Wendy. Still enjoyed the racing. Gordy and Dale make it look so effortless Thanks to all racers for putting on a show.
TRG these boats run fixed nozzles. The pumps in these are works of art for durability and performance. They are allso put right thru hell. It is not uncommon at some races to change the impeller after each leg. You have seen pictures of the billet suction housings and bowl, you may have noticed a lack of pics for the impeller They also have left or right hand rotation impellers and bowls. The SSS pump even runs a water cooled frnt bearing. This would be a great pump for you drag boat guys to start with except it has no clean out hole provision. so no pop off. Please note the black #357 boat has ran over 140 MPH (GPS for the nay sayers) with NO Loader, Shoe or other underwater hardware so why no shut down issues
Just electiric, The did run V-drives back in the days of the payette river race. One won it in the 80's
My PC doesn't show a link to a video?
I wish these boats werent so damn expensive. Throw a decent interior in one and it would be the perfect lake boat for exploring back coves and tributary creeks without convern of putting a rock/stump thru the hull.
I wonder if a thinner steel hull would be more affordable to build this way?
Here's one with an interior. Built in McKinleyville, Ca.
