Can somebody please enlighten me. What does WOT refer to. I see it so often on this forum.
Thanks
Walter

Wide Open Throttle.

Thanks for that.
I am now enlightened.

Me too. I had presumed it meant With Out Truth. As in "My searider does 50kts WOT"

There you go....

Well Willk, I always thought it was wide open throttle, but you do raise a good point. Many people claim top speeds which are hard to believe.

Is WOT still used for engines that don't have a carburetor as strictly speaking the throttle is the butterfly valve in the carb?

All petrol engines will have a throttle.

And most fuel injection systems have a butterfly valve too.

The valve controls the amount of throttle, if anything the butterfly only decreases the amount of air flowing through the throttle.
