    RE: AQUACRAFT'S NEW MISS VEGAS U-18

    is a good move to replace the lower rudder mounting screw with a brass (or even plastic) screw, will make it "break away", the screw will break vs. the mount

    Just a heads up. Was pulling the water cap to check the condition of the button to see if I was getting near the edge of detonation. The cooling cap bolts were loose, not enough to be shook out but enough that it didnt take any effort to remove them.

    RE: AQUACRAFT'S NEW MISS VEGAS U-18

    This is to everyone that does not know, ANY new motor you get should be checked out before ran ESPECIALLY RTR engines best thing to do is tear them down clean them up oil and put back together BEFORE you even start pulling the rope I dont know how many times Ive done this and found tiny little pieces from machining or little bits of casting flash in the engine its just good practice

    RE: AQUACRAFT'S NEW MISS VEGAS U-18

    Thinking of getting a Macs tuned pipe for the Deuce, there are 2 close for the ST .18, one for .10-.15 and one for .19-.35. Which would be better? Running 30% with Octura 535 prop.

    RE: AQUACRAFT'S NEW MISS VEGAS U-18

    Lets talk props, trying to find out prop alternatives with the stock pipe. I already know about the Y535 is the same as the stock but brass, I hve tryed several others but the engine will not pull them. My altitude is about 3200

    I'm basically at sea level and have not had much success with props bigger than the Y-535. The Grim Racer 36X55 is slightly more prop than the Y-535 and worth trying.

    Jerry have you tried reducing blade diameter, backcutting , or taking out some cup on the larger than 535 props or were you trying basically stock props? I know the prop gurus do these things to make a "too large" prop a better fit for a particular engine/boat. Just wondering....

    I have not tried modified props on the MVD because I'd rather use a prop that anyone can get and run w/o "blade butchering."

    RE: AQUACRAFT'S NEW MISS VEGAS U-18

    Here's my new MVD. Everything is stock except for prop. Its a CMDi balanced/sharpened y535. This is a cool boat. Radio, engine, and pipe are an excellent improvement over the original. Regarding the new sponsons...such a slight change, makes a huge improvement. It's not as significant as the mods listed in the Miss Vegas thread, but simple.

    Here's my Video. Special thanks to Tom H. for driving the boat as I caught it on camera and Rick for launching it.

    RE: AQUACRAFT'S NEW MISS VEGAS U-18

    Raising the strut or the prop helps loosen the boat and may cause cavitation, so you may have to give the boat a harder push when launching. The results should make it a little faster.

    The MAC 2.5 pipe work well but is noisy. A Rum Racing Products After-Muffler will make it less irritating. Better yet get a Cooper Quiet Pipe...Quiet and maximum power from your Aqua 18.

    RE: AQUACRAFT'S NEW MISS VEGAS U-18

    Hey Guys and Gals,
    I just bought a new Duece and took it to the lake. I am finding that the boat will run fast on the straights the will slow down while I am still on 100% throttle. ? I have almost 3/4 gallon of 30% thru it. The boat is all stock but the grim racer turn fin and grim racer 35mm prop.I have looked over the boat but cannot find any issues. Can anyone help? Thanks Jason

    Is the boat slowing down while running on the straights or slowing down in turns after running fast on the straights? If it's running fast on the straights and slowing on the straights, you should consider richening the needle.

    RE: AQUACRAFT'S NEW MISS VEGAS U-18

    This boat is such an improvement over the first boat. So far, the only upgrades I have done are grim turn fin and CMDi balanced and sharpened octura y 535. I gps'd the boat (unfortunately no video) with 60% nitro and it ran 43.5 mph. At that speed, the boat gets a bit flighty and a handfull to pilot. I don't know if I should give the strut a degree or 2 of down angle to lower the nose or lower the strut. The strut is set as high as the stock setting allows and has 0 degree angle.

    I can't see how the original miss vegas can compete with this boat stock for stock in an rtr race.
