Yes I think if we setup in the middle as to the far right. Will help around that speed bump. I've bee reading another post on water restriction on the .21 also I had my exit pinched all season. More restriction is needed. One great ideal was to put JB weld onside one fitting then drilling a smaller dia Another was to put a small setscrew with a hole inside. INSIDE the water line. A inline water restriction.

Here is where I am at with the driver stand. The posts are cemented in 2.5 feet deep. I couldn't get any deeper, too many rocks and heavy clay, but should be deep enough. The stand will be 9.5 feet tall, 6 feet wide, and 16 feet long.

I don't need help at this time, but thanks for asking. I just work on it a little at a time. It will be a long stairs for sure, but I'll build the stairs to code, so if you fall you can't complain. It was originally going to be 7.5 feet tall using 10 foot long 6x6's, but Lowes does not carry 6x6x10's, so I used 6x6x12's....

Yup, nasty day! The rain filled up my pond completely. There is huge amounts of water flowing out of the spill-way as we speak. When that stream starts flowing it really goes! I probably have the spill-way a little too high. There are some areas on the east side that are close to over flowing.

The east side never over flowed. All is good. With the water high, no problems tossing the riggers in from the dock.

Not frozen yet. The island is a little smaller now, with the higher water level.



Did a little more on the driver stand.

It's a good high ground for shooting muskrats too.

It will take time. Mine took 2 months I think.

I ordered another .21 tunnel, this time a Vision Craft. Should have it in a week or so. I double checked to make sure they could fill the order quick. I still have not gotten my .21 Cobra tunnel. I ordered that 4 months ago...

I also have a 44" Seaducer mono coming for the OS .91. I have a feeling, that's going to be a fun boat! [8D]

Still working on the twin cat. I had to make changes to the engine mounts to get them lower. That put me back some time. Mostly thinking how to do it....

Been so cold, I have had to cut more trees down from the woods. I cut 5 medium size trees down last Saturday and they are almost all burned up! [X(] Saving a ton of money doing this though.

We got a cold windy one coming this weekend. Your a good machinist. Looking good on that OS .91. Let me see what needs doing. I have been running RC trucks on hard clay. I got my first 50 lap. 4.1 second per lap. I have been stuck on 47 laps. I'm not consistent enough. I run good for a few good laps, then I get out of my line, spin-out. I feel real good about my driving, Now. I started a .21 Zippkitt rigger build I'm trying to go lite, on the epoxy. I f I used all CA I 'd be liter. But weaker. CA & Styrofoam don't mix. I have some long grain Balsa that I want to make some super-lite sponsons. on the .12 rigs. I my need to wrap them in fiberglass tissue

I never had much luck using CA glue....

So you are building another JAE .21, cool! Are you putting a different motor in or just swapping the motor from your first JAE .21?
