    in the Rogers the change was immediate. the boat felt looser, ran quicker, the nose didnt climb as high out of the hole...

    never weighed the hull. maybe fuelinmyveins has weighed it now that he's got it. Its a heavy hull. I've venture to guess at least 650 lbs or more.

    after the motor was dynoed we turned the boost up at the track so i dont have a legit number. i'm guessing close to 1100hp. It didn't ET all that well but it ran pretty big mph. most 9.0 boats run about 108-113 mph. The rogers ran between 113-116 depending on the conditions.

    Then again,...there's always the diets some racers (No names!) could probably afford to check out! if im not mistaken, its pretty cost effective too, pound for pound, i would say probably cheaper than some race parts!(not to healthier)

    I added 40 lbs. to the nose of my boat, lost a tenth.. took weight back out got my tenth back.

    Ive been drilling holes in some of my stainless bolts that dont have much load on them, its time consuming but really does pull weight out, any aluminum parts we make see a milling machine for pockets.. In a jetboat weight is a HUGE deal.
