84.8 mph on 1200 grate today!
RAD is 99.5%, 1200 grate, stiff wind 13mph and the acceleration is harder than it was in November. 7870 rpm's.
The differences now are: 1300 waterbox, '05 hull, V-Force cages, Lowell case porting, different jetting.
I got a water leak that is driving me nuts..it's the same leak from Lightnin'.
I cannot tell you how fast this ski accelerates and hits top-end numbers in a blink. :P
Philip and Flyboy will ride it next week.
Edited to add, air cleaners were off, with Tommy Jordan's "new" mod...this is an absolute beast of a ski right now.

No, actually it was quit stable going into the back bayou where it was calmer. I forgot about clicking the nozzle down until I was coming back. The ski is locked down. I think I'm going to make one more jetting change for next week. The holeshot is whats scary..it's much more pronounced than last year. I called Nando and he was the first to hear the news...told me there is more in there.
Great RAD day for running, just wish I had the 800 grate and other "stuff" for a flat water run.
I also had a slight vibration from idle to 3000 rpm, it's because I moved the intermediate shaft too far backwards..but once it hits, she is gone.

Sounds sweet I want to go fast.
If i can find the right situation would like to move and get into the waverunner gig in some form or another.

Keep us posted on those bad ass speeds.
