    V4 Eninrude/Johnson?

    Hi all,
    Question for members that recaall Kankakee..
    Many years ago, maybe the height of OPC Nationals in Kankakee, there was a class (I cannot recal the name) where I believe consisted primarily if not exclusivley Johnson/Evinrude. From what I remeber the calss was V4's, Loopers? Stingers/Javelins with modified lower units. Anyway, This was one of the classes (besides MODVP) that was a highlight at least for me, because of the distinctive sound they made going by, gave me chills. I miss that sound like no other.
    Can someone here shed some light on what class that was? The boats and motors than made up that class?

    Thanks..

    Sst 100 ?

    could it have been SST100? Being a super stock class there wouldve been only Johnsons or Evinrudes.
    the V4's do sound sweet

    I believe they were SST100.. Nothing sounds or sounded like those V4s'.. I do miss the OPC Nationals. We went every year, not missing one. They inspired me to a point I prepared myself an HST with a MODVP to enter the MODVP class, that was the year the discontinued the MODVP class so I sold my rig the next year. Wasn't meant to be I guess...
