    Deeougee,
    Those could be fighting words. If anything other driver may have been sand bagging a tad because he knew he should have had a plate in.

    Either way nothing but good things to say about 26b for running clean and both him and 38ce for getting by me when I showed my rookie colours and totally botched a corner. C’est la vie, I’ll get faster.

    Definitely a 300 series engine on Kevin’s boat. The fastest of fast Y80’s run 68 and the C’s are running 71-72, not a lot of separation between the engines. Not many running those above speeds either. The Y80 will out accelerate the 102 and 300 series engines also straight up.

    Definitely on the choppy side! Been there many times.

    If that is a 302 and you kept with him for 3 laps you are doing well.
    Have you dumped the gear oil? Water, metal in it or clean? Clean is good!

    7/8” below at 1* of tuck.
    Other boat was running a 302 I believe.

    Luc, Very nice action pic looks to be running well. What was the set up, prop height, tuck, etc? Is 26B running a 102 or 321?

    That was a smooth as the water got all day, but it was definitely the boat and I's best showing to date, really encouraging to see the motor and boat starting to come together.
    Always do lots of testing… then test some more.

    Oh! I thought the scrap pile boat was a different one. The 75w- 90 good choice, let me know if any water or metal in the drain out
    Keep safe testing.

    Pete,
    The Bezoat still looks the same. I was so caught up in the day I didn't take a single picture. I'll get some from friends I'm sure and I'll post a couple up here.

    I ran synthetic 75-90 gear oil and will change it between each use.

    Sounds like coming along well. Post a pic of the scrap pile boat. On any gear case work with new bearings, etc after 1st use I check the oil condition to see of all well and no bad stuff like water and metal in the oil. What oil brand and weight gear oil did you use, full syn or other?

    Local run was yesterday, we had an abundance of wind with white caps on the course for a good part of the day. Morning testing was ok.
    But when us bsh boats went out for a run a rookies driver flipped his boat trying to make it to the clock.

    I made a few small changes to the set up but ultimately ran at 1” below to make sure I was getting lots of water. No cooling issues bites with the motor even on a 5 lap race. Still think there’s a little more power to be had but I was able to show that the boat is competitive when I had a deck to deck run for the lead for 3 laps with a much more experienced racer.

    The basket case motor and scrap pile boat worked great. Now we need to work on the driver.
