2 Fast Fred

We’ve been hunting for the engine guru all over the world and you seam to be very appropriate person to ask for engine tuning tips. We are starting Thundercat movement in Russia, riding Gemini ZII and other local tunnel hulls. As everyone who has been there before we are struggling to understand Yamaha and Tohatsu pros and cons. Our team chose 50Tohatsu and now my pilot is driving me nuts trying to uncover secretes of R/R engines. All we got is a list of legal modifications from Auzie websites and British pilots’ whispers during Zapcat final in Cornwell. I’d appreciate any info that could help, please drop me a line on lenok@lycos.co.uk

i'd need to see the specs that thay gave you. Tack the crank, snip the revlimiter, she wakes up. can do for yas, thare is more you can do, that powerhead shot is for my SLT ( Super Light Tunnel) same as yours, yamaha 50hp wakes up too.
this is a Hot-Sue crank, make yours look the same, Mains and throughs

To- hot- su guys you got to weld the crank, then snip the revlimiter,( gray or white wire comes out of the black box, makes a loop and goes back in to the black box, Cut it, tape it off. you want the 50hp tuner pipe, if you got a 40hp
you want to find 50hp carbs.through the muffler box out, change the gear oil in the foot to some lighter weight. cut the head till she bumps up to 140lbs psi
on the compression gauge, run high test gas hit a 20deg max advance.

thinkin 130- 135 on the main jet, ya thats what i'm thinkin.

Hi Fred, Most of what you mention reagrds the Tohatsu 50 mods has been done. I ve done. It make a bit of difference but not much. Not enough put it that way.

My own thoughts are on the exhaust side, as to where the main restrictions are. Not sure how to over come them.
I wish I had the time and knowledge to maufacture a tuned pipe.

Ever tried "dry stacking" if possible, one these motors.????

I mean 50hp from an 800cc 2 stoke is just pedestrian.

Even with the mods the zapcat just dosent fullfill its potential. 40 knots just aint fast enough. Unless its in the surf.

50knots + and I think that would make them special. Flat water raceable that is.

Sounds like you have that across the pond. Any vids around ???

unless your guna buy Fuel, 110+oct, comes by the drum,it will never make the power your lookin for. you can dry stack, good for about 4hp total.
makin tuners is no big deal, hears the formula, what ever the size goin in x 2 1/2
goin out, make it look like a cow bell, 6"- 7" long.
you need a bigger moda. Yamaha 70hp CES, this is a good place to start, on fuel
she'll make over a 100hp and pull to 8000rpms, sendin the hull up over 70mph.
i'll look around for some vids

Ive tried Avgas, which I think was 100LL, and didnt notice any difference.

I Thought I had slight improvement with Nitromethane in varying percentages. But it was not that noticeable in race condtions.

Using a 70 is not really an opption as all the Zapcats here run 50 Tohatsu,s.
So would need to get more from the Tohatsu.

Any pics of an expansion chamber ??? Insitue

Do I understand you correctly in that you are fiitng the chamber inside the leg ?

Sorry for being abit dumb.

Thanks for the replies v.interesting

"the thing with AVgas" the trick with avgas is you got to COMPRESS IT!
otherwise the hull will slowdown, a min' of 26cc's head chamber size.
on the compression gauge about 150lbs psi crankin on the starter, the higher the Octain the less it wants to lite, you got to squish it to excite it, then it will lite, and Then it MAKES POWER.

once on AV, you can't go back, unless you change the head.
