    RE: Thunder Cat 31

    hi 1badmaro.i use %30 nitro byron fuels and prather 220 prop with that pipe on my tc31.u can find this pipe in below adress and i definitely suggest it

    http://www.justengines.co.uk/acatalog/Tuned_Pipes.html. this is the address where i bought this pipe.in this page "20 purple pipe" is mine and only explanation about pipe is "For 21 Engines (use on 37 & 38 for high rpm use)"

    RE: Thunder Cat 31

    The Prather 220 works OK on this boat but try an Octura M-445 or Zippkit's 444 and you'll see more speed.

    Very neat. Hope you have flashing light on the hatch or it will vanish from sight on the water.

    RE: Thunder Cat 31

    Did get a decent run...50.2 mph...got another prop in yesterday..was using a 230 now gonna try a 240 but have a feeling I might drop to a 235.Will try to get video,it's really hard to do by yourself.Am happy with 50 but always want a lil more..as always.

    RE: Thunder Cat 31

    Hi everyone !! I have a tc31 and have been reading this forum for over a year for all the awesome advice and tricks, I am wondering if anyone has removed hard mounting of stuffing tube going into boat and used silicone or something to make a sort of flexable mounting through bottom of boat to make easier movement for struts adjustment without stressing bottom of hull ?

    RE: Thunder Cat 31

    When you remove the stuffing tube replace it like the gas guys do. Only glass inside the boat. None of the support piece between the hull and stuffing tube. This frees up the tube to be moved up and down. that said once you have the ideal setting for the boat you very seldom have to move the strut up and down.
