I had mine in the water for the first time in a few years this weekend. The 3.5 is plenty of motor for the boat. I can rarely run her wide open unless the lagoon is slick calm. At wipe open though her own wake can cause a catastrophic wipe out or barrel roll if you cross the wake on the quarter.

This boat never gets old to me. I have no idea how fast she is going, but to guess, I'd say wide open is in the high 30's if not more.

I get about 10 minutes of solid run time on 6 oz of gas. Forgot what grade of nitro I'm using... I'll look tonight. All I know is its pink.
