    Back on the limiter....

    ...first time in almost two years.

    I installed the rad4racing torque plate last week....was woried about the added length of j-pipe in my oem water box. So, I pulled it and shortened it an inch. Now....I ran it last week and only saw 7900 or so with brief flashes of 8000. Did have lousy weather...t-storms, wind ect, very choppy conditions.

    Okay...in optimal conditions used to run 7950 in the heat. With low fuel I'd get a top speed of 72.7 @ 8050. Today...woohoo...in light chop-ripples full tank of gas....E86, L69...steadily pulled up and topped out at 71.7 @ 8100 before I ran outa water....experienced my first real cavitation outa the hole.

    Not too shabby If I do say so myself.

    I'll leave things as they are till next week...expecting warmer weather so will see if I'm still on the limiter or not....will decide then to re-try my 15/20....or not.

    flushed Riva grate, 2* wedge, skegs, diy free-flow exhaust, diy rear air, S3SC, 14/19+2

    You'll be very low on revs with a 15/20 if you're struggling with that 14/19+2. Get yourself a Riva Nozzle and fine tune it. You do have an X-SC and 42s right? Ext IC? You should be seeing more speed than that or maybe it's your altitude

    No x wheel, no EXIC, no 42's
