Thread: 87 octane= 83.2

  1. #1

    87 octane= 83.2

    Went to hydro drags and entered my Lowell 1390 ski in the radar runs.
    The actual radar runs were slower for most, including me from sets of small rollers that were in the middle of the radar run course.
    I bounced my way to an 80.6.
    2 hours later i went down in flatter water and ran an 81.7 with me on it.
    Then i went and got my superjockey Nate.. He made 3 passes.
    First was 83.0 Then 83.1 Then 83.2 Spinning the VX at 7301 rpms.
    Too much fun.... C-54 canal is awesome..
    87 degrees, 65 dewpoint, 29.90 baro

    Awesome Ross, To bad them rollers were there during the radar run because i think every ski would be 1 to 2 MPH. faster

    Thanks Mike, it does have the 3 degree keyway, Squish is .060... Compression is 133-133-128..

    I trued the plate to the hull and the ski is solid as a rock at speed now. Zero bounce,,, unless there are rollers there..
    For anyone who want to check, use a 4 foot level and hold it against the hull on both the left and right outer edges of the plate.
    Make sure the plate height up from the hull is the same on the left and right sides.. Mine was .040 higher on the right than the left.

    I agree Jim, Hydrojunky would have been 88+ i bet without those rollers there. He caught the bad bounce from them also..

    Great numbers Ross!!!

    Ross,
    Very impressive! But I'm filing a complaint with you putting Nates numbers in your profile. He's built like a chick! I suggest that you change it to the 81.7 that you did yourself. It would only be right. Congrats!
