You swapping the motor out of the orange boat or you got something special for this one


Sent from my iPhone using SoCal Jet Boats
The 468 out of the orange boat for now. Eventually we will build a big motor for the Pro Eliminator class.Should run in the mid 8's with that set up. Shooting to license for Top Eliminator at the first Parker race.

Got a few shots from my dad this morning. Pump is in, and my peddles are done with the loud peddle stop almost done.
My steering wheel looks like something out of a fuel car. 😬😬😬😁😁😁
Mark from edelbroch got are data system to us as well. We're starting with just the pump pressure ports with the data, we will add to the system as the program grows.

Alright guys. She came home this morning.
We're going to drop the motor in her tomorrow morning and then drop her off to our friend Tim Goodwin for pluming.

Plan is to test Saturday 👍🏻👍🏻

Big thanks to Chris Starkweather and Joe "Flusher" at B1 Racing for a killer job on the rigging.

It's almost done guys. We're coming down to the wire for the first Parker race. But should be done with this bad girl on Wednesday. She's at Leftys getting some work done then tomorrow she off to b1 for a few little odds and ends. 😁👍🏻
