    88mph Ultra 250 in New Zealand

    Rumour has it! There might be a turbo ultra 250 running at this weekends first indurance round here in little old New Zealand.It might have all us RXP/RXT riders worried. I have heard that their setting up extra fuel stops especially for it.

    Well if it`s Turbo Charged. I`m sure it gets better GPH than a Super Charged unit....Turbo`s are free BHP with no external engine drag.....
    88 makes it one fast Gun-Ship.........
    Better check that Bull`s Eye on your back........

    Thats true. I can see the engine making the power to do it, I just cant see that hull going that fast.

    How much horsepower would you need to get the Pacific Princess on plane?

    I'd say it would take close to 500 hp to get that boat up to 88mph...if the hull could go that fast without chine walking and doing other undesirable things. I say it's total BS...but then who knows?

    Who ever thought that the offshore boys would have twin 1600hp turbine engines in a 48 foot cat that goes so fast none of the photo helicopters can begin to keep up with it !!
