Title: Unusual Overtaking Method.....
Post by: craig dickson on January 02, 2014, 09:16:37 PM
How do you pass a 26cc racing gas cat   {-) with an SC46 powered A-Class boat?????  :P

If the SC46 boat is truly humming, this is one way you might be able to do it.....>  ;) ;)

Well craig, the mods you made to your engine paid off! (( you might need to check with the committee to ensure supercharged exponential turbos are allowed??) Can't believe your little crusader left my gas cat standing! Your new boat is a testament to Bernard's hulls which fly when both in the water and out of it!!!

Garry I can now understand why you are replacing your 2013 winning Gas Cat with a new one for 2014 :-)
Trouble with a super tuned SC46 is that when the pipe length and prop combination is sufficient for it to literally take off and fly in a straight line run, it tends to die a death in corners. :((
