N0 radar shots on my FE yet but I have gassers that go pretty good. I am guessing my FE rigger is in the lower 50's so far....maybe more.

Here is my Gas Whiplash GPS

My gas avenger cat

I lost the pics of my Gas Riggger but the speed was 71.9

I ain't got proof I own a real fast FE, and to be honest I don't care, as long as my competition boats can outrun those of my fellow boaters, I'm happy with a "guestimate".

Regards, Jan.

I loved the Aquajet extreme. It was around 30mph. I think I got it up to 28mph on 16 cells. I sold it to get the SV27. I haven't GPSed it yet. I think it is in the mid 30's. I know its faster than the Aquajet was. I am running the SV on 14 cells.

Hey FE..

One thing I learned is that speed takes $$$.



My best: 44.5 MPH.. I think I can take this to 52 with a gear change and smooth water.. Let you know..

Moppie.

What actually constitutes a "FE"? Are you looking for a certain number? Most of my boats are electric....I think they're fast. People stop and say "Is that electric? Wow, that's fast." That's proof enough for me.

Sweet guys, thanks for the pics. Personally, if it does over 30 it's fun. if it does over 40 it's real fun and 40 IMO is when you can truly call it a "FE" boat. Anything under that is not that fast to me

Been testing my 32" mono as some of you know I am sure. Things are going well. I need my Motor, and to hook up with Ms.Darla so I can use ger GPS

FE Chris..
I agree with ryan_t888 Close but no ....
54.5 mph...
But I still have the option of going from a 10XL to a 8LX and then some.
Pic is from July 20, 2007.

FE_Chris,
Not much traffic on the higher side.. How about you? Seems 40 mph is the glass ceiling.
