    Within .2 mph of 80

    Finally had good conditions for a test run and ran 79.8 mph. but blew an intercooler hose - with 5/8 tank of gas. I think I can get to 80. ~65 degrees, 29.9 barometric pressure.

    I can tell you that even though it might not feel faster with the porpoising laying on the back with the trim all the way up is good for almost .5mph
