    Finally broke into the 80's in salt water

    Finally hit 80.4mph in salt water. Tuning was a mission but I know I can get at least 1 more mile an hour.
    Testing was done with :

    More than half a tank
    Not flat conditions
    82.5mm ring turning a solid 8500rpm
    15/19r skat Riva, Rude, all the goodies
    87 degrees air temp and 84 water temp

    With 3 bars I should hit 81mph.
    With colder weather and switch to a 81.5-82mm ring at 8500 solid 81.5-82mph.

    Acceleration is impressive with the 82.5mm ring. I was killing everyone in my path...
    I will keep updating..
    Hector

    Congrats Hector, that's a very good top speed number considering how hard is to achieve good top end speed numbers in SALT WATER.

    Ok I keep seeing this but why does salt water hurt top speed?
