    fast yes .. is it safe? prob more so with marks larger size on it than with a skinny guy!!

    ( yes, oh bear! you are bigger than the rest of us ..and now much faster too!!!)...

    hopefully its design handles close to a gp/gpr bottom(I'm thinking now that these are mentioned as being Darths model's in the grafting of that rounded type bottom)

    CODY YOUR NOZZEL IS DONE.. WILL 2 DAY IT TOMARROW..

    If any wish to duplicate this...Hopefully after codys +++ findings are posted on this ...

    to cut 'in' the extra two degrees accurately your drill press table must be set at 7 deg (5+2) to enable you to cut the extra 2 on a 65u ,at the top edge of the outlet.. ( the bottom edge need not be done as it sweeps the flow in an 'up' angle already).. this mod. changes the diameter slightly larger and water stream's thrust angle to a more up vector ...

    I think the hump will help the Blue Deamon turn at speed and track straight but its set up to run flat unlike the GP or GPR where you get the front end lift.

    Mark said it runs flat and gets there quick

    I finally worked enough OT that I think I can order my crank on Friday. That was the only major obstacle to getting mine running.
