I thought the Verados use a 'fly by wire' throttle which is specifically banned in F2 EAME and BWS (2009) rules. I sure Wacky will know more.

That's one of those Raffshore 'Phantoms' and it hasn't been around for a year or two. Never seen it pull a skier fast enough to know if it was any good or not.

Cant see why not if the hp of the verado is 300hp or under, dont know if theres a rule stating a four stroke engine cannot be used in f2, i think the 6 cylinder verado's are fitted with a supercharger, so it might be an idea to check if a supercharger is allowed in f2! but sure it would be allowed as the supercharger is fitted in factory!!! why dont you check the rule book, and check with robbie theres been no changes made to current! Heavy engines to race with, but have had v gd reviews from what i know!!! id check eame rules aswell before i bought one!
