Thanks guys...I will be checking over everything...I'm looking forward to seeing how the wire drive competes against the other backlash and whiplash that run in our district. I had it running in 2020 but it wasn't cleared and painted till now.. I have to get the back up boat done so I don't beat this thing up.

Propworks 6719-554 or 6819-530.

Strut Neutral @ 7/8 - 15/16” on setup board or any flat surface and you should be very close to perfect.



Good Luck !!

Had a good time today at the lake ...brought the family with me ...my son was the camera man...getting the backlash sorted out. Very windy day and I'm hoping that on a calm day she will be ripping it up
Ronnie advice was spot on...after this flip I drop the strut to about 7/8 and it settled it up real good. Thanks bro.

It's a namba legal g1 spec modified 25.4 for g1 sport hydro class. In namba we can't stroke the small blocks and make them 26(+1mm) or 27(+2mm). This is the way this particular class is...and it's not combined with any other. It's a very competitive class.

Well the first race didn't bring home any trophies but it was plenty fast. I have some trim issues to work out. I must say the wire drive makes a very strong argument for conversion the acceleration was balistic, the one downside is that the maintenance is more involved than a regular cable...they will break on you and u must have a spare. G3 is a fast boat. The sorting out continues.
