    Post Hydrodrag Discussion....Turbo VS Supercharged

    Well, lets talk about the performance of each and the 'reliability' issue of each...

    I had read somewhere that the turbo boats 'seemed' to have more issues than the supercharged boats but no 'how' or 'why' was addressed...as far as I can tell, from what I have read, the turbo conversions dominated (except where Jawz boat could run! )

    Would it be possible to get a rundown, similar to the Mudug list that Billie did, of the Hydrodrag results broken down by classes, speed, and time?

    The turbo conversions did awesome on the Radar runs but I would give alot of that credit to Duke and Stick'um(and whomever paid the bill) for sitting down on the docks all day tuning those ski's.(Game over and Rab1)

    Alot of the turbo ski's that didn't have that level of tuning and mechanical advise either blew up, ran on the limiter all the way down the course or had no bottom end.

    In my opinion, the SC'ed boats took the drags and the turbo's easily controlled the top speed runs..

    MY BOAT HAD LOW COMPRESION IN THE NUM 3 CYL. 80,120 120, IT WAS LIKE THAT WHEN I PUT THE NEW HEAD ON, I MESSED UP BY NOT CHECKING THE COMPRESSION. BUT OVERALL THAT WAS MY SHIT LUCK. I HIT 88MPH AT 8000 RPM WITH 19 PSI BOOST. COULD NEVER FIGURE OUT WHY EVERY PROP I STUCK IN WOULDNT TURN OVER 8000, NOW I KNOW. I HATE RUSHING FOR A SHOW NOW IT BIT ME

    your ski looked great going down the course..Your hull bottom looks very cool when you hammer it and the white comes out of the water, nice touch!!

    Sorry to hear about your motor..Good luck

    Hydro,

    I feel so sorry for you to come all the way down here and have a problem.

    I felt even worse for the peoples ski's who did not break and had to run through waves in the middle of the radar run. And the end of the drags sometimes.

    great to see you guys again.

    Jose had a turbo that BLASTED off the gate like a rocket.

    Then it made an awful noise.

    Speed Run......Turbo boats are the way to go you dont have to worry about comin out of the hole.....

    Drags: 1/8 mile.....Turbo boats couldnt even holeshot.....To much power to process......SC boats like Reid and Stans were more capable of getting a good holeshot and running the track.....It was all about getting a good holeshot......
