    From an old SST60 Mono racer in Australia I enjoyed your video. I use to race a Stock OMC SST60 on my own design Mono in Australia around 1994. Would pull 7,200 to 7,400 with a super thin 11 3/4 X 23 cleaver which was good for a circuit speed of 78mph plus. Use to race against the OZ Burges Tunnels with the same engines and always had acceleration and bottom end over them. The SST60 was the bridge port block. Still hold the Aus 1250cc mono record at 82.33mph but I believe that this can be bettered to around the 85mph mark. Always ran kilos with a 25in prop at super engine height with my own design nose cone. Found that I could run 25 mil higher than the stock SST60 nose cone which gave me the extra speed. Would be interested to hear what prop you run and what revs you turn. On another matter I am chasing stock SST60 carby's to build up an engine so if you have any for sale or know of anyone who is interested in selling a set just let me know as I am very interested in the purchase of these.

    Stephen, I am the Class Rep for T Class. Jake Elsey is the owner of that boat. As mentioned in other posts. T is an ALTERED stock class not a Super Stock class.
    The SST 60 power head is allowed, but it cannot run with a SST 60 head. On the race course the OMC racers run props 11 3/4 X 23. 12 X 22-23-24, 12 1/2 X 21 or 12 1/2 x 23. The de-tuned SST60 normally has 1 to 2 mph more top end compare to the fishing motor blocks which have more acceleration. It makes for GREAT racing. Carbs are easy to find. The only difference in the large stock carb and the SST 60 carb is jetting. Post and you should get them on this site.
