no pissing contest here either but if no one can verrify a statement its just an opinion.i am not calling you a liar for all i know you changed blades and did the whole deal.i must have missed the thread on it. you usually keep the forum updated on new events you have done or changed for the betterment of our knowledge as do most of us.as for felber he will tell you the best all around combo that will suit his or her needs if you want a combo that does alittle of everything he says prop "a" if you just want to haul ass prop "b" if you just want to be efficient prop "c". and so on. junior480's boat is not a he said ,she said there are pics on this site as well as i am sure many that have ridden with him that can attest to his motor,box,prop combo so thats a fact(verrified by several sources.)i am still not calling you a liar.just stating a fact.so in my opinion that your motor cant be held back by the sensenich r blade which in fact is a type of sensenich prop this lets us know in my opinion that a motor that develops more power and torque cant be held back by a prop that small and thats a fact. but all this is just my humble opinion.for i am not an engineer nor have a thrust test machine or have enough money to aquire the finer things in life such as donating large enough amounts of money to a colledge to get an honorary doctorate for engineering so i can advise people with more than opinion but with an edjucated opinion.

Well all I can say is the common denominator in all the Beck Racing engines is the word "Street." If I were you I would save the money and heart ache and buy an "airboat" engine. There is a big difference in making a fast airboat and a fast street car, unless you just have money to piss away every time you blow one up because they weren't built for the load that a prop put on the engine. This isn't about Texas or who's bigger or any of that it is about combo and tune. Hell I don't care if you piss rocket fuel and crap top fuelers if you got 1200 hp and you aren't set up and tuned right someone with half the power will dust your ass and that is the truth. At one point in time people ran crate motors because there was not much of a choice but there has been a few people out there dedicate their knowledge and time to developing a truly dependable engine for cm boat owners. By no means am I knocking Beck or any other race car engine builder but a race car is not an airboat and until boat owners and most engine builders realize that there will be a lot of money pissed away trying to figure out why they keep coming apart.

honestly painkiller if you are not in a super hurry build your own motor it gives you a better fealing when it run well.22,000 is a hard number to swallow and you could most likely build comparable for less than half. there are several builders on this forum that would gladly sale you a cam ,heads,ratating assembly ect. at a fair price and you put it together. thats my vote but i run a cadillac so i am not the smartest i just love missory. :shock:

Call Don and ask him if I tested the R blade if you do not believe me, and for the record I did post the information. Just to keep you up to date next week I am going to send off my reduction to get the gear changed from 2.68 to a 2.37, you can call Bud to make sure it is the truth if you like. :D

sorry i couldn't find the thread for the update on the r blades. i will search again i probably over looked it.i only came across this one.

Bonds, I think he means he couldn't get into the effective rpm range for the "R" blades sweet spot in that statement. I could be wrong but that is what I take from it.

This is spooky, I feel like I have a stalker. Just kidding Bond, I know you are just trying to bust my stones. :wink: If it makes you feel better I am wrong about everything I have ever said and you are right.

Darn it, as a louisiana boy misplaced in Texas, give me a holler when ya'll decide to throw down. It would be worth watching and I don't care if the throw down is with fist, knifes, or airboat races. I am just wantin to watch. My home state would be about in the middle.

Do some research on Beck before you front him any money.
