Well guys for it being my first time on the "starting Rope" I gotta say it aint as easy as it looks! LOL I was really fighting to keep the boat pointed down the track (by hanging onto the rope), starting the engine, turning on the data acquisition system, setting the divirter in the right hole, ect ect. I was kind of confused the first few times and my holeshots really sucked! My first ET was in the high 11's and I had registered fot the 10 second class.
Also, I had done qrite a lot of changing to the boat since I've last run it, and the set-up was no where near right for the new PFC engine. We didn't even have the right parts with us to get it tuned right. The Engine preformed flawlessly all weekend and never missed a lick! I"m going to have to shave the impeller a bit (gear it lower) to get it up to the peak 6500 rpm. It would only turn 58-5900 this weekend, so I was leaving quite a bit on the table, plus it was hopping coming out of the hole pretty bad.
My last run was the best of the weekend. I finally got it all figured out, and cut a .02 light, and a 10.87 e.t. @ 96.7
I've got some videos of the runs which we will try and get up tomorrow and post some links to. Some of you Asphault guys may never have seen the liquid quarter (it's definatly the other side of the coin), and you boaters will enjoy watching them I'm pretty sure.
Thanks again to everyone for the help! Especially to Mr. Bret Powell who put in a lot of long hours and built a STELLAR engine for our effort!!!
