    Toterhome vs Motorhome vs RV recomendations

    You only need the clutch when you're stopped. just to take off. after that trans functions as if someone else is driving for you. there is the same hesitation and rpm drop during a gear change like a normal manual trans except youre not pushing in the clutch, lifting off the gas pedal, and...

    Toterhome vs Motorhome vs RV recomendations

    That was about 3 weeks ago. I sold the red truck last week. still have the red trailer. I picked up a 2004 Showhauler with 70,00 miles on it. It's got a 450hp mercedes benz diesel, 10spd autoshift trans, air ride suspension and air ride seats, one slide out. Runs great, rides great and needs...

    Fuel cooler

    if you're running EFI then isolating the fuel rails from the hot intake manifold will lower the temp of the fuel dramatically. You can remount the rails using delrin, teflon, or phenolic material. I did on my roots blower setup and it dropped the temp of the fuel by 40 degrees.

    im not an expert but the Gen 1 to Gen 3 are similar to the southwind. The one I have, which is a Tom Peterson Gen 4 Placecraft is very different from the old Southwind tunnel dragster. The Gen 4 has no pod on the back of it and its a longer hull.

    no. the Dragstar is nothing like any of the Placecraft hull designs.

    CP makes a great hull. I just wanted to try something different and I figured the tunnel bottom of the Placecraft would be a little safer at high speeds than the gullwing (basically v-bottom) of the CP. I don't know if it is or isn't safer, it's merely an assumption on my part.

    I made that template off the keel of my 21' Eliminator Daytona, which was modified by Jeff Bennett. Jeff gave me permission to copy it. He's the best there is at making jet boats work.

    130 mph Placecraft jet boat video

    I made a change to the bottom of my jet boat and picked up 15 mph. This is 8 psi of boost and 7,000 rpm with the largest impeller I can fit into the jet drive. Now that the bottom of the boat works a lot better I'll start feeding the 711ci Hemi a bit more boost. I'm hoping to have her all...
