Be nice to see some exact figures when you have run her in a bit - and the videos as well.

is the supercharger whine very noticeable?
Hi
It is run in now. Just past 20 hours.
Its quite alot louder than the 300,more like a cross between a 4 stoke and 2 stroke. The supercharger whines at 6000+ revs and sounds fantastic. I will try to get some video tonight if i am out. cougar told me the 300 on mine got to 60 in 19 seconds...This one gets there in around 10-12 seconds...

Brilliant - what was your top speed on the 300? The whine does sound quite good there - someone posted a video of a RIB with 2 of them and it sounded terrible - maybe it was the microphone or something.

With the 300 we were doing 67-68mph.

Does that mean you are only getting about 3mph more? I know acceleration is much better but even so.

Just waiting for the to get nearer the $2 mark.

Unless Mr Rude brings out a Nice V8 - or Mr Suky - or I could just buy a 1980s V8 Evinrude - 400hp - 225kgs - bliss!!!
