    RE: AquaCraft U-18 Miss Vegas Hydro Thread_Make it Fast!

    I run 50% nitro...I also did put 6 or so ounces on the left sponson to get it as stable as it was in that video...I have since added a little sponson mod (experimental) , but have not had a chance to test it yet...

    Hey Kevin, have you tried running a x445? Myself and Kaptain have had some great results, but with .32s. Looking forward to heading out to the lake soon. I have been working on a tc31 that now weighs less than my .32 vegas.. woot!

    RE: AquaCraft U-18 Miss Vegas Hydro Thread_Make it Fast!

    Hey man,
    Don't go to the Indian River High School lake just yet...if that's the lake you are talking about...it's still off limits for now...we have a meeting set with the director of operations for the school board on the 16th of Feb. to see what options we may have there, if any....construction may start in a couple of days or a couple of months..we don't know....we'll see Tuesday.
    No, I haven't tried anything that large prop size..I think something that size just may hit the rudder, but I'm not sure. I like a smaller, higher pitched props myself..nothing over a 40 or 42mm. I know that yours takes off like a rocket with the .32 in it, so it must have some good low end torque..I would like to see however what it can do with one of my smaller props that have my magic wand waved over them...lol

    I have a prather 225 that's supposed to work great on that TC31 if you don't already have one...you can try mine..

    RE: AquaCraft U-18 Miss Vegas Hydro Thread_Make it Fast!

    yea man, would be great to try the prather out. I just recently tore all wood out of the tc31 and plasti dipped all electronics in an attempt to drop the box to lighten her up some more. If it works, I will be running without a box on the MVs also. I will probably be at Debbies RC sometime in the next couple days, pm me your phone number. BTW, I hooked up with an old 6.5 which I'm dying to throw into something

    Be carefull with the plasti dip, i used that my self in a vegas with open radio and it will peel off and tear very easily and water can seep in, i now use permatex hi temp rtv silicone gasket sealent it sticks REALLY good, more flexable and does not want to come off.Only needs to go over the screws and seems. I also put a o-ring under the horn with a little di electric grease,no problems at all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks Matt, will test it out, found out what you said about the Plasti Dip, seems to seal ok but if there is a small gap or hole it will hold the water in... nix the plasti dip idea!

    Don't forget to put some around the wires to, for the reciever i used a rx box from traxxas, they have a few different styles to choose from,use plenty of di electric grease and they work great.

    In fact they both still have the AQ .18 They have been overhauled a couple of times and I still have some new pistons and sleves.

    Been busy racing mine. After 3 of 8 District 8 Championship races, I have a slim points lead. There were 6 Vegas boats at our last District 8 race in Eugene, OR, over the Memorial Day weekend.

    No, but I sure enjoyed my time in Evansville at the 2007, I think it was 2007, IMPBA regatta. Great race site and watching the unlimiteds race on the Ohio was really terrific.

    I think the deadline was Monday. You might go to internationalwaters.com and ask there. There is a thread under "Races and Results" titled "Evansville 2010"

    Need to have IMPBA card handy also...

    I think that it is close to the 200 boat limit...16 RTR's

    There will be a race in September 25-26, and one in Mt Vernon Illinois in July...not sure of the exact weekend.

    I need help, My flex shaft broke right at the collet, The flywheel looked like it wasn't so true so pulled it and put it back on, looks true now, Put in a new shaft and it broke the next day at the same spot, what could be causing this

    is there to much angle in the stuffing tube or is the engine sitting at an incorrect angle, most of the trouble with the aqua shafts ive been hearing is a poor solder joint, their not the best shaft in the world BUT thats not a trouble area with them, sounds to me like something is out of alignment also possibly not enough of a space is being left between the drive dog and strut..check those things

    As Toyota said, defintely check the spacing between the dog and strut, when the motor torques up your flex shaft will tighten up (like twisting a towel) due to the torque, if you don't have enough clearance between the dog and strut, the flex cable will bind up to the strut causing the cable to break. I belive the distance should be 3/16" inch, make sure that there is plenty of clean lube on the flex also.
