Hi Specialk 1
I have spent a small fortune on some very well made props, every cent deserved by the prop maker, but I have to say that the ABC 2714 comes out tops on the race course.
The three blade 6717 props will give you plenty of lift out of the water as well as a tad more speed, but will put the boat on edge to race around the course. The 3 blade prop needs to be run high and due to its extra blade it has a greater paddle effect (prop walk) which not only forces you to correct with more steering down the straight but is more likely to throw the back out in a tight turn due to the forward thrust being resisted by the hull wetting out in the turn, forcing the rotational paddle effect to walk the tail out to the left "Spin out"
The ABC takes some work to balance it as I consistently find the one blade seriously heavier than the other. I give it a very small radius Texas cut at the hub just to loosen up the rev at bottom end and out of the turn. Sharpen it as best as I can without taking too much meat away as these boats are quite heavy with big thrust so you dont want the blade to collapse.
The two blade prop is also easier on the flex shaft !

Hi Hooter, I just noticed you have a SLAM008, have you had it for a while and how have you found it runs.
I just ran the SLAM009, being the SA Dealer, a very impressive motor, looking forward to its running performance.

Our YPC "X-Ray" leg is performing well and will be available in 2010 internationally.

Ian good to see you are using a SLAM260 looks good on the boat have you had a chance to run it before your knee?

we have recently released the new SLAM009 and have appointed Dominic Young from Youngz Performace Craft our exclusive Agent in South Africa, Dom has carried out some testing over the past couple of days and is totaly blown away with its overall performance and build quality. The 009 engines all come with Billet 4 bearing crank cases that will with stand any punishement.

we have also built one of the YPC Hulls with one of our engines seen below and have tested it for the client and i must say one compliments the other, i just wish that the Gas Tunnels in Oz take off becuase they truley are amazing to watch.

Hi George
Welcome to the forum and well done once again for putting the SLAM009 on the market. It will definitely take the aftermarket mod guess work out of many keen boaters lives as well as assure them of a motor that is capable of running for a number of seasons, offering great performance, without throwing the crank bearings, having four as apposed to two.
I noticed in the picture of the instalation on my YPC "Millers Legend" hull with the SLAM009 on the Lawless leg that you have used 6 singular allen bolts to secure the Transom mount plate.
What we have in stock and use on the Lawless is a S/S plate with the 6 bolts welded to it so that it is not a hassle to adjust the hieght when needed.
I have seen however with the new batch of Lawless motors that the basic "Morty type" L shaped mounts are being used.
Cant wait to get back on the water !
Regards
Dominic

Please explain this to me 6 bolts to hold the plate to the transom but 4 little bolts holding the adjustment plate to the transom mount? What's the logic in that.

Hi Cobus
You know me. The fact that the Lawless leg was and still is available , mattered more, than the ill logic of any small detail. although I have no doubt that Fred Howe did not do it without due consisderation.
If I had to take a gues, I would say that the rotational force as well as the lift force on the transom of an outboard needs more bolting due to the transom mount simply being bolted onto a flat/smooth surface, whereas the tilt bolts (4 small ones) enable the sides of the transom mount bracket to tighten onto a thin surface (5mm) which actually bites into one another.
In my exsperience, I have had the motor moving out of true vertical, more than the trim angle changing.
Fred has since opted for a simpler mounting arrangement, which is already on the market and able to be viewed in one of the previous posts.
Come to think of it, my Off Shore Cat has 4 transom bolts and only "1" trim/hieght bolt making up the drive shaft arrangment, there must be a relative formula in it somewhere ?
Hope to see you in Durban for the Endurance weekend.

Sorry Dom won't make it. Going so far for 2 half hour runs is a bit much. Have asked Lionel if he would increase the endurance time but no answer back.

I was of the understanding that each race was an hour long on each day ! The inboard off shore races that is. The O/B Tunnels will race the usual 15 laps 4 heats per day.
I will call Lionel and get back to you ASAP

Hi Guys !
Hope this wets your appertite to either finaly finnish that project or just to get back onto the water.
Above is a site to see a short clip of the first SLAM009 in South Africa, getting its feet wet on a YPC F1 Tunnel outboard. This was our first day out, on the second tank, not pushing it past half throttle. I had set the boat up light for the "run in period", but did not actually need to, as the motor had plenty of power out of the blocks.
The set up included our new YPC009 tune pipe as well as our very own X-Ray outboard leg, which is currently going into production for retail.
Regards

Hi Special K 1
I will certainly post some good pictures when the first production batch is complete. (Currently in process) The current leg in the picture is the second prototype and not exactly what the final product will look like.
As I said before, it is a pure, out and out racing leg, offering a number of special features, with affordability being the main one.
As for the square drive, I reckon there are a few, although the length is critical so that it reaches the cable suitably.
We use the BH Hanson drive from the States, its the correct length and very true.
The common "square drives" have a tendency to be knocked out of true quite easily, and I am sure that for the outboard application they are a tad to short to facilitate the supplied flex shaft.
I like the SLAM009 Motor, I am sure Hobby depot advised you to tighten up all the bolts and use a suitable loctite product. They leave them dry so that the customer can take a peep inside !
You will not be disappointed. I am taking mine out for its second run to-morrow to ensure that it is well run before our next club race, start of October.
If you have a problem sourcing the square drive, I have stock.
Regards

Hi, to all the outboard guys , well it looks like i will need to build a gas outboard tunnel for myself , i have had a look and i think i can make a drop transom to fit into the Formula one tunnel and that will save cutting the boat after its joined , i can do it before it goes out the door , hopefully Hooters will be in Sydney next week and i can have a good look at the mods he has done .

Will post some pictures of the new Outboard Tunnel as soon as i have one done

Happy Tunnel boating

Jordo

Hi Hooter
Well done, especially for your perseverance !
You have done a great job with the set up and I am sure that you will have a good day on the water first time out.
We look forward to hearing all about it.
In the meantime my, SLAM009 is getting looser (and faster)I will be putting it to the test on coming Saturday in a club race and hope to get a few more litres through the motor before then.

Hi YPC,
I'm interested to know more of the Slam009 like where to order one and how much it cost.I was already aiming to get QD25HT and was also aiming at your lowers combination. Much as I am really keen on getting my tunnel to run with OB instead of the usual IB, I have to start with sourcing for the best motor and lowers for best buy
To all OB boater, keep pushing for the limits guys and soon OB tunnel will be the main, or one of the main category in future races.

Thanks for the infos Dom.

Hi Body Guard
Its good to hear from you.
The SLAM009 is available from Hobby depot Australia (George)
I have not forgotten about my offer to you and at the moment our first batch of Outboard Legs are underway, of which I will make you a very special offer to get one in your hands to introduce to your boating community.
Outboards, especially Gas, are truelly a spectical to see racing.

Hey Dom,
Thanks for remembering that. Working hard on the extra fund to splash on the motor and lowers.
Extra info on the motor and performance which you are running now would be a great help to decide on motors.
Maybe George can send the info to my email bglatiff@yahoo.com.

Cheers and regds for now.

Hi Dicko, good to meet you !
Thanks for the posts.
What I want to add to the discussion around the SLAM009 is what I find amazing, in as much as the motor is certainly producing more horses as well as being quick out of the corner, it still has a very nice throttle/rev control range, which is especially important on the outboard tunnel hulls for driver control.
I have run some VERY fast motors, but found them to be to "on/off" the power and very difficult to control, making the F1 Gas tunnel a nightmare to race.
The SLAM009 motor will also give one many more hours of good running due to its 4 bearing/billet aluminium crank case being more stable than the cast type, as well as it being a very noticeably smooth running motor, having far less vibration due to the good balancing of the various running components.
I for one am enjoying it and am looking forward to realising its overall 'Run in" potential ! 2 more hours to go !
Regards
