Re: Is the clutched box at the Broward Airboat show?

Re: Ecotec progress (updated info: 3-1-2013 Thrust/Weight Da

I know deck height will not permit The larger diameter propeller but there will be a gain in thrust going from the current 76 inch diameter to 80 or 82. Just a thought.

I guessed it Within 5 pounds. I said it felt like a small block now I see it's blowing like one that is incredible! If we can get this combination to blow 1252 1300 pounds of thrust that will be a killer combination. Not taking anything away from it now but I believe this Can be a reality. What impr...

Re: what gear box!?

2.38 to 2.55 ratio would be a good fit with a three blade r series. diameter will depend on hull width and cage size. hard to miss with this combo.

Re: Ecotec progress (consolidated posts)

This ecotec has got my gears turning!! I would like to put just a little more squeeze on the engine and go a little lighter than russ has it and it might be a little lake side contender.. its certainly breaking a couple rules already so it has my attention..
