    I figure 330-340 at 9800RPMs,its a 2.5 liter 300drag with tight heads and a few other small mods
    My bare hull is at least 580LBs which is porky for a center steer Jaguar river racer
    Havent heard of any 4 cycle turbos yet...prob see this in the near future as that is what all the fast PW run these days.
    Dave Bush from Lake Havasu has the quickest full size whacker (non hydro) in the country and is pulling 500HP from a 3.1 liter V6 OMC (no power adders)
    He dominates ODBA and DSRA drag racing and has put it to Rich Srnec from St Joseph Mi a time or two,and i dont have to tell you how quick Rich is..

    that boat has won the sdba te championship at least once, and won 7s at sitc back to back. seemed to have a minor engine problem back there this year...

    Mark,Bob summed it up pretty good right there,but whackers are a little dif then jets when it comes to rope racing
    Some actually leave in gear (on whatever countdown#) by pushing there start button
    Myself,i have never tryed this,but have seen it work and produce wins
    I leave on an early seven,but this is in neatral with the motor idleing,so you have to factor in the time it takes to throw the shifter forward,the prop to start spinning befor i get any thrust..
    am i making any sense

    Broken Bow

    I will be there Memorial weekend, 4th weekend, and Labor day weekend. So pick your time and I will be happy to mix it up with who ever wants to play
    As for the Outboards I will be at the Northern Chapter Rally on the Red River too. Maybe we can get all the Outlaw gang together for that one too.

    The Tylenol will be needed the next morning

    As a comparison at the IHBA drags, what number would you leave on as compared to a jet in your same class ?
    In other words, do they leave the rope at the same time you do ?

    Yeah there are some petty quick whackers out there, but to answer your question I dont know Ive never ran at a sanctioned event.

    definatly hauling the mail,did you get a chance to measure up against the hard hitting whackers?
    I believe Garrel and Acey with the Evinrude/Johnson powered STV white/red would come close to 5.0 ETs on SDBA at 660'
    I know last 2009 year the Jet with huge nitrous sawed all the whackers off
