Hi there,

Just went through a seperation and needed to find a new home for my toys. Finally got settled again with a smaller workshop. I will try to work on the build and keep you posted. This beast may be up for sale because of my situation. Would you know if there would be a a Crackerbox display or musem where they might want this beast in there collection? I have almost everything needed for it except some rear hardware.

Thanks

You're kidding me? I am going through this thread drooling and get to your post above. Man, I'm really sorry to hear about that. You sure you don't want to keep going on this? I have been there man, and the first 6 months really suck, but after things start to get better, you might wish you still had it. What an awsome boat! That thing is a real trophy.

i have sold many projects that i have built, some after enjoying them, some without even getting to try them out. i miss all of them, but if one didn't leave the next one wouldn't have been built. its just such a shame especially after that amazing paint job you wont get a chance to show it off and scare some boaters when they think they're gonna get run over by that giant speed boat, then realize its only half size when it gets near them lol. beautiful boat tho man i must say

Hey R/C Boat lovers. Will be taking out the Crackerbox boat soon , to work at it from where I had left off. Had found a storage area to put it away until it was time to continue this project. Will post when I do.

Default Out of storage

Good morning R/C lovers!

Well, finally took out my Crackerbox out from storage. Had time to add a few accessories and see what's left to be done to it. Do have some interested people of purchasing it as a display in a bar but will see.

Default Crackerbox build

Well, not sure how difficult it will be to get it registered but I will only use it when the City and there commities wants it for tourists attraction. And the area where they want it to run is safe from anybody getting hurt from it if out of control.

I think with the very light and wide hull that will get plenty of air under it for more lift then you might want. that boat will run just fine on a 29cc full mod Zenoha. Give Bruce at Gizmo Motors.com a call. he will also have all of the hardware needed.
this is a 60" fiberglass hull that I am sure is heavier, then yours and not as boyent as a flat bottom cracker box. This boat has a stock 231. with a Bonzi clutch . No were near the power of the 29cc fully modified. If your boat is under 25lbs I would not think twice, and really with a lot of that power coming in the way of torque. i would go that way even if it was over 25lbs. Bigger cc means less RPM's and that means less speed. Unless you are so heavy the prop you get just boils water cavitating. I do not think that will happen.
