    Thumbs up Brower Park

    Found this guy while I was out boating Sunday (John Melles)

    I guess they just dynoed his motor at 950 hp on gas.


    We should all still be boating at 75 yr old.

    I did see you there Tom.
    There was no where to park around the cove.

    I saw a blown hemi flatbottom there yesterday too but the flatbottom guys seldom go down by the dam.

    yes parking is going to be a trick this year with the gas $$. are you on the e85 yet? race gas @ post drive was $5.26 I was talking to bill R and he said tom E was dynoing on e85 and had to go up like 60% I know the dyno will pull more fuel but dam you will be pumping it to it if those ## are right. tom

    At $5.26 / gallon he is less than the $ 6. he was last summer. Sales probably fell off to nothing when he was the highest price around.

    I just finished the last of the stale 110 fuel from last year and am ready to make the switch to e85. I'm going to change to a F.A.S.T. EFI system too. I can run sequential / closed loop and the tuning should be easier than ever. I am going to tune for pump gas and e85 so I can easily switch back and forth.
    I can do the whole thing from the laptop and not touch the motor at all.

    Road racers have a wireless EFI system that lets someone change the tune on the motor from a remote laptop WHILE THE CAR IS IN THE RACE. That would be the trickest setup possible.

    Yes, John is a great person to know and one of the original drag boaters from our area. That's a great looking boat he has.

    I need to get to Hardy and talk to him and some others up there about coming down to Gun lake on July 19th.
