2015 Hamant with 550HP ?? Thunder Power

Post by Waterthunder »

Wade an the guy's built one hell of a SWEET boat this thing is a beast. She rides so sweet in the water and cruises effortlessly. We loved the phone call from Wade asking whats up with this 550HP. Our 550HP motors have come to the point where a 3 blade is no where near enough prop. Wade said they had it so far pat the 3rd mark an a 4th mark they had to swap it to a 4 blade. Needless to say she swings the 4 blade with AUTHORITY. Good job Wade now get started on my new Ride boat, because the motor is getting closer so you better get to work.

Ya Bronson's 440 is a terd it's probably weaker than our 550's we do now. If you didn't notice all the race guys at one time or another run 3 blades and just over pitch them. Boats Like Danny, Brad, Chuck, me and the ground rattler all ran 3 blades. Same reason why Bronson runs a 3 blade but it's not the way to go on a ride boat when you have power unless all you care about is racing! Hell Chucks boat with a 3 blade R just won the unlimited championship again. Chucks motor only makes around 675HP to 700HP and the 3 blade works well on it.

"Waterthunder" , If you don't mind sharing, what is the price tag on this SWEET THING ?
