70 MPH if you're selling it on ebay.[sm=lol.gif] Real world, a little over 20.

If you've been over in the Unoffical Nitro-Vee thread lately you'll know what I'm typing about. Theere was a seller saying that his was broken in by the factory (lie) and dialed in but was dead stock. I've seen 70 MPH Radio Shack boats in there also and a 200 MPH Prather outrigger hydro with a stock K&B .21 on it. The tales get taller.............

Change the prop to Octura 440 and you should see mid 30s with the boat getting on the plane within a few yards.
Fuel consumption will be vastly improved as well.

I hate to be pesimistic but there is no way short of sticking a stick of dynomite in the rear of a stock Vee that it will reach speeds in the mid 30's. Don't get me wrong, the Vee has plenty of great features but speed is not one of them...[&o]

I think he means 30 KPH. Surely he doesn't mean 30 miles per hour.
