    RE: The Unofficial all things Jet drive thread

    I had used epoxy on my fibreglass jet drive, no workie, a good hit on rocks running rivers cracked it and let water in. Goop is the only suggestion I have as it can take the hit and not leak, plus u...

    RE: Unofficial

    I tried actually separating the top and bottom. No workie, tried with acetone etc, cracked bottom hull a bit. Cutting hatch is so far the only way that keeps the strength of the boat together and...

    RE: The Unofficial all things Jet drive thread

    Ummm.. just a tip on extending the delta. On a couple boats I had tried this, I never had luck with it. When I did so, 2 boats became skippers. And one of the same boats started to wag, which is...

    RE: The Unofficial all things Jet drive thread

    Twinjet, when doing up esc, put a different cooler on it, one with water cooling, you can always make your own. Cheaper and can be done same day. The holes in the aluminum are probably meant for...

    RE: Unofficial

    The only boats I had seen with larger or oversize was... mini-v with... 28 or 29mm drive, thing apparently sunk due to over weight and no foam. Ahhh... there was another, someone stuck in a 33mm...

    RE: The Unofficial all things Jet drive thread

    There are a few things wrong with 2.4ghz, it does not shoot through stuff such as trees, brush very well when compared to 72mhz (the lower the better). 2.4ghz does not have the range that 72mhz(with...

    Hey jet sprint basher, I've done my inlets like yours on every boat, but a bunch o the guys have ... some sort of fine grill mesh on their inlets, surprisingly this has kept speeds up or close to it,...
  13. RE: Graupner Jetsprint Thread-Build-Talk-BS

    Going down a size, sometimes ur lucky if a bit of heat shrink if the size difference is so little, ensure that set screw is locking in a groove and loctite. Other way is to go to hobby store and...

    RE: Unofficial

    Wrangle boy, I've tried the 5 min epoxy, no good, chips when hit. Did that with some automotive stuff too, same problem. You want something that holds yet has a bit of flex due to the hits you will...
  16. RE: Graupner Jetsprint Thread-Build-Talk-BS

    That must be whats throwing me... i thought the original was slightly larger than knock offs and the kit was made with fiberglass.
  17. RE: Graupner Jetsprint Thread-Build-Talk-BS

    ok, but is that glass? It looks like abs, for some reason I thought it was someone else that made the original.

    RE: Aquacraft hammer

    Personally I would say $80 for it, but still good boat, I managed to get 33mph on mine with only swapping motor and esc to brushless. Converting to surface is the way to go but out of the hole and...
  19. RE: Graupner Jetsprint Thread-Build-Talk-BS

    That plastic or glass? How much was the kit? Looks identical to the knock off.
  20. RE: Does anyone know where I can purchase 2.4mhz boats?

    Aquacraft sells em at 2.4, at that many though perhaps you can deal directly and get a good deal.

    Hold up Sdgz, what if the whole jet and motor is exposed to air? No cooling should be required, just need to ensure the wiring is waterproofed at the connection points to the esc(which I would tuck...

    sundogz no harm done dude, to me it's about getting a good boat going, even if it means more experimenting. I still want to do a cat though, but would mean ordering a second kmb drive which is...
