yeh i suppose to keep up with 'the jones' then whilst undetectable then we may aswell do it?

Why dont they just make it legal then? Any ideas..cos if Shelly is at it and the Honda Boss' daughter, then they should all do it..IF everyone is doin it then no one is cheating, but if everyone is being good, or just doesnt know to do it then it's not right..and old Trevor the engineer is great at tampering with ECUs ..he's been doin it for years!!

Is there a website for the Honda guys...cos maybe I could put a red alert out for them and tell them it's OK to cheat and run bent cos big bum has been doin it all year! I feel sorry for those new comers who think its all FAIR!

Wot i dont get, is that if one of the organisers knows, then why do they not make sure that every race the first 5 boats have an 'out of the box' ECU?

RAYMARINE should have been penalised.....losing 5 places as soon as it was changed!! HOW OBVIOUS IS THAT???

WHATS THE VOTE ON MAKING ECU TAMPERING LEGAL???

"The Boat

All boats in the championship are Honda Formula 4-Stroke boats using the standard Cougar designed hull and Honda 150 horsepower outboard motor. "

So which bit of the boat did cougar design? I think you'll find it's a Mike Ring design!!!!!!!!!!

It hasn't really changed that much since I built the first 8 boats! Apart from removing the "chip chine", and restyling the deck, it's more or less the same boat!

I prefer the original, but then I suppose that's for obvious reasons!
