Should be fine, key is set up correctly. I know many that are running them on gassers, twins with 101’s as well as record setting big block boats.

Carl, good looking boat. A sport hydro that is actually a sport hydro not a sport rigger!
Thanks! You are correct...I think the guys who have seen it run see that you don't have to chop one all up to make it fast. She's a straight tail. The wire drive is the way to go. We are going to try the new drive Brent has designed in the next revision.

THANKS! It's a joint effort. Me Mike & Ron Talley and Kentley Porter have all been working on it together. I made a laser kit for it but not sure if I will sell it or not. I am taking a break from being a model supplier for awhile. It's fun just messing around again. Looking forward to trying the new soft mounted wire drive system.
