    Talking 80 Mph 1200 :)

    Well I just broke 80. Ya, I used triples but it was a 1200 with stock carbs. No package, just shared community knowledge. I was a lot happier when I popped 80 then when I broke 70! The 05 pump is a sweet pump. And never thought I could find an impeller as good as my cut 14/20…The Dynafly felt similar but gave me another 1.5. I really had to squeeze it out…I had to remove my bucket and water sox to get 80. I also got to experience that 80mpr buck though, mine wasn’t huge but made me think doing 80. Anyone willing to share how they overcame the buck?

    NOW, do I go ported BB or not.

    Troy,

    Congrats on hitting 80. My triple bucks with the 1200 grate but not with the 800. I have the package.

    Somewhere between 80 and 81 it bucks with 1200 grate and 14/20 prop on.

    At 83.5 with bigger prop and 800 grate I can make a sandwich.

    Well you can do several things to help the buck,less angle on the plate would be one, more shimms on the trim tabs would be another, I don't know your set up with your plate ,tabs, intake grate,etc. I to run stock carbs on a 1200 at 83 and still going up so there is more in there. let me know your set up
    Congrats on the numbers great job!

    It was definitely a good feeling. After a couple of runs, I stopped in the middle of the water by myself grinning ear to ear. If someone would drove up I would have looked like a delirious idiot sitting there by myself just grinning….ya! It was only 1.5 faster than the previous week but just seeing 80 pop was priceless!
