So.....did you win? :D
Nope we are sore loosers.

If we go out, we pack up and come home before the race is over. :p

We have the boat apart and going back together right now. Trying to find 2 10ths before Choteau.

We refuse to step down to River Racer class. lol

Maybe you need a bottle in it? Or maybe a bigger one? :)sphss
Info JR. is a firm believer of motor or nothing. He does not want to spray it. We do not have any power adders so far. We will next year. His mom will not allow it this year. lol

We will see if we can get there with boat tuning. It's an old boat and we are challenged by that. If necessary we will put injection on it.

Or buy a flatty lol

Some how I think you already knew the answer to that one :p
We had fun... how is that.

We decided early this year that we will try our hand at drag boat racing. If we suck at it then I guess we just do. Were not going out with the biggest baddest engine in the boat etc. Whatever the boat runs it runs.


But since then lol, we didnt expect the boat to run EXACTLY in the middle of the index. So now we are scrambling a bit to correct that. And spray would do it for sure.

You too man.

It was the packing sucking air causing the no launch issue. The retainer for the packing was against the pump.

So.... We put in new packing, added an inducer for the BC impeller and put a prime a jet in it.

Will try it this weekend.

Thanks for the tip on how to charge the pump on the rope.
