Normally the prop is the last addition but you know things can be built backwards!

Re: Air fuel ratio for direct drive

Check your fire on these. That's a broad range of plug identifiers and could be a spark jump on the latter pictures. Unknown on a DD but i'm running 14.2 to 14.5 depending on climate overall. Haven't got into the low rpm factors so maybe new ground. I did have a set of D1 champions last 12 years if ...

Re: Whites Performance Chevy 540 BBC

There have been some excellent alloys that have been exported in the past 15 years on the cheap. Problem is consistency. It varies from one lot to the next. That said plenty of big name US products are Asian with a brand name stamped or etched on the item once imported. Unless your buying top tier ...

Short of buying beer and condoms you could not find a better way to spend your money than getting a carbon fiber prop! Many airboaters now days have this mentality?

Dump the 305 for scrap or give it to anyone willing to help remove it.................... It compares to a 150 on that hull as a dd and worst as a geared or belt drive power plant.

Re: What manufacturers are still out there for glass hulls

That's a tough question for that in DD! Maybe someone else that runs it in DD can add to this? I run a very well built one with a 268 on a jw hull but it compares to a weak stroker. Best is ask who is running that in dd, but I sure would avoid a thick hull if that's your motor choice and being DD fo...

Re: Jimmy White hulls

Really nice light hull but only concerns are dry loading with a winch from a dead stop. Not that the boat cannot power up but never hurts to listen to your hull being dry loaded on occasion with a hand crank winch.

Re: Outer edges of glass hull sagging

Lose the jacks and build it accordingly! What your thinking of is the older gore hulls that had side glassed in braces for support in both directions! Rarely if ever seen on newer glass hulls. Choice to cut out and flip to it's stringers while rebuilding (not 2x6 side supports like most do to mount ...

Agreed! Your going to pay to play and some pay regardless of playing? It should do OK but maybe better served as a budget upgrade replacement as funds come ready!
