    LakeRaider EEEEEK!

    Those motas' run on a mix of nitromethane and alcohol. 7:1 compression.
    1471 blower. About 82-8500 rpm. The hp goes through a Casale drive unit and gets the prop (v-drive) spinning over 20,000 rpm. Horsepower? Up to
    6,000! Amazingly the props are small but have so much bite that there is no longer a need for a 2 speed gearcase. :cool: Raider(.)(.)
