Hm...I'm not sure? Many people are telling me to go with a nova Rossi instead of this motor also what do you think??
Thanks josh

Go ahead and play with it for now as-is then later on go for the Nova Rossi. With one set up right it'll haul the mail as you could see nearly 70 MPH. Martin Truex Jr. (yes, the NASCAR racer) set a new record running one of those..

Thanks 4fx its got 420s and is a dog just bought it last year. its got the wrong props and haven't been able to find out what they are supposed to be so its trial and error this year. it also used to have blowers on it and i'm thinking they just took the blowers off and didn't re up the compression . but im thinking of putting blowers back on next year. but it rides great smoother than any boat i have ever been in.

Come on, we need more pix in here as I know that a lot of you must be up to something especially if you're living in the colder climes!
Here's a little number that I picked up yesterday from the former IMPBA Prez, Kevin Sheren. He ordered it last year but lost interest in it. I spent most of the day messing with the motor doing odds and ends on that.

Nope. Maybe a flamed Hoover hydro and I was thinking that the big mono might be a Ballantine. In shot 2 appears to be a DPI OB tunnel off to the right.
