    RE: Fastest Engine

    call your doctor if this lasts for more than 4 hours...you may have a rare condition brought on by high revving engines and large bore machine guns with wheelbarrow loads of free ammo.

    All I would have to do is seal up th servo openings on the bottom of the wing, right?

    RE: Fastest Engine

    That would work to give you a v bottom and put floats on the wingtips.

    Thanks for sharing. You said in the video that you had to "adjust the wing down, it's way too high." Are you talking about the elevator adjustment? What do you look for during a run to you tell when the elevator is adjusted correctly? I was also wondering, have you ever rolled or lifted a pontoon in a high speed turn? Have you ever held full throttle for more than two seconds on a run? Brad seemed to notice your boats stability as he mentioned that it didn't flip even once. Are the other racers redesigning their boats yet?
    What I meant by that was that the rear of the boat was riding too high off the water, I try to keep the botton of the hull above and parallel with the surface of the water. I actualy meant that the elavater needed pitched up to push the rear of the boat down some.
    I have had it belly up once after the inside sponson hooked on some wake vigorusly snacthing the boat around which also had something to do with the wing not being tuned in correctly.

    RE: Fastest Engine

    This one really sticks to the water so it can get to probably 80-85 on smooth water.... the red and white one.... I've had this for 7 or 8 years and can't find a decent picture of it, odd...

    RE: Fastest Engine

    Hello fellows, its been a while but I thouht Id update you on my boat. Last year about November, I lost radio with the boat and listened as it smacked a dock at 73mph.
    I lost the gps and tuned pipe in the cold water and the engine was barely hanging by the fuel line.[X(] I went back four days latter with a fishnet taped to a broom handle and scraped the bottom till I finaly found both of them.
    Over the winter I rebuilt it here are a couple of pics of damage and rebuild.

    Sure beats my old TT 61 air boat years ago, made out of PVC pipe.
