What is the fastest tunnel hull?
 
What is the fastest tunnel with a stock 3.5 cc outboard? I listed a couple possible candidates below. I'm looking for straight line speeds on flat water.
Aquacraft VS1
Lynx
Leecraft
DPI Hobby tunnel
ML Boatworks 295
Any others?

Sign up for an account over on intlwaters.com one of the best spots for tunnel info, there are a bunch of tunnel hulls on the market and I believe some of those really good hulls are mainly sold and marketed through intlwaters and by word of mouth with no other website store or store front to purchase them from

Yup I would agree,
Lynx, ML 295 or Vision for hulls round 300 new
Aircooled OS outboard 399 new
Results round 50+ mph
Check the IW for sale forum, Used off season bout half that.......

They do have a special layup Lynx for SAW(straightaway) for a few bucks more

your best bet is a Vission Boat made by Shawn Junker they are great boats for stock or modified racing

gener, kp's record is with a mod engine, not stock. need to look at b sport for a "stock" record. if all the stars & moon line up, a "stock" tunnel should be in the 50's......

Good catch Robin,
Yea, Looks like KP got tha B sport record too.
Thanks Man,
Gene


Added note:
NAMBA records, Jim J also with a Lynx,
(stock) OPC 54.85mph, Mod 66.17mph

namba opc stock is different than impba sport. namba stock is STOCK, exactly as the factory built it. impba sport is stock appearing, but allows internal mods. that's why the impba record is higher ;). notice the mod records are much closer.

Well said Buddy,
What is legal in B sport has been a heated topic more than once at IW,
So not gonna go there :D
Gene

Another to mention is Aaron at Oz Spec hobbies had a Vision/NR35+ combo turning crazy fast numbers downunder......

Aaron's vision was flying the other week, would not stay on the water and he was not even giving it full throttle!! She is a real screamer!! I should have filmed it- next time

Might get that vid for you on Sat Gene if Aarron runs his tunnel as it is the state titles-forgot to ask him, so we will see. I know he has been working on his riggers mainly,
cheers,
Dion.

I did not get to make it to the races and have not heard how the tunnels faired in the poor weather that weekend. I will update you with any news,
Cheers,
Dion.

.21 Outboard Tunnel results from the State Champs.

1st Vision/Nova - Simon
2nd Lynx/O.S. - Jase(first time to run an .21 outboard!)
3rd Shaman/Nova - Me.

Wasn't so much racing, but survival of the fittest! I only finished one heat and still placed LOL.
I think this was the case for nearly all the classes. I believe even the winners in most classes had atleast one DNF due to the horrible conditions(Rain/storng winds).

Cheers,
Brad
