G2 150HO

Finished rigging a 150HO on a Ranger 188vx. The owner wanted to keep rigging costs at a minimum and retain his hot foot and the appearance of his dash. Rigged with a mechanical to digital converter and Icon pro tach.

That is a sweet looking rig. Do you have any performance and fuel consumption data for it?

Bill, I'm at the Atlanta train center for OB3 this week. I'll get some data from the owner when I get back. Previous engine was a G1 150HO so we should get a good comparison.

Thank you for updating us. Besides the things like engine height changes, props (of course), and any speed and acceleration differences, let us know if there is improvement in the "fun to drive" category.
