    Default shakedown for overkill saturday april 4

    planning on putting her in the water tomorrow (april 4th) going down state and dumping it in an unfrozen lake, fired it today and everything looks good. hope things go well tomorrow, its gonna be cold but i have waited long enough (since december) to get this boat wet and see just how it runs, ice is gone and i am ready.. lol

    Default shake down

    things went well today besides battery going dead and getting oil out of the dipstick since it tried to come out, the j drain got stuck open by a piece of aluminium shaving from something.. and almost running out of fuel... lol but everything was well worth the wait, it was defiately a cold ride so we stopped twice to talk with neighbors on the lake to warm up between a total speed of 74 mph that felt like a hundred and 20 below with the wind, we were only out for a total of a 1/2 hr or so, but had a good time, got some things to fix before next run but overall i'm ready for marble lake and first outing in may, i guess thats what a shakedown run is for... so now i gotta get to working...LOL

    Update. 2nd ride went very good. Got oiled down but figured out with mufflers in it and puke tubes going to #7&8 zoomies the mufflers are back feeding the crankcase causing oil out dipstick and it stumbled on big end but figured that out as not enough venting on center tank. Quick remedy for both problems. When it leaves it's a rocket then about 3/4 track it stumbles then picks back up again and starts marching. It was rough water so didn't see full potential yet but I am very close. What a ride:grinning:

    looks good there robert, i take it she is running good, it sure does look good, hope all is well out your way, and thanks i am enjoying the new ride, got some bugs to work out but its coming around just fine, wish i could take these mufflers out as that would solve some problems i have, she would breathe a lot better but with them in cops cant mess with me, its got mufflers and db is actually under the limit in july they come out for the marble lake deal as that is the closest to a race i will see around here in michigan
