    Thumbs up

    This is very interesting

    I can't wait to see it
    Since 1925, about 150 different racing outboards have been made.

    Its still early days yet, but if testing goes OK, we hope to have a boat and engine available for drivers to test at a round of the F4 world Championships, here in the UK or in France.

    I have seen the old Selva F1000i engine race in Hungary last year. It was quite impressive. A little slower to accelerate than the Yam but better top end and lap times !!!
    If the new engine performes as good, it could I guess, be of interest to you guys in the USA ?

    The best part is, it still sounds like a race engine, it can be used "out of the box" and it uses a race gearbox, so prop dia. - pitch can be kept small. .( problem with 90 etec). . . Ideal on a small 14 foot cat.
    When I have more info, I will post here again
