Default Who are we

End of anonymity, tell us your real name, your age, what you do and something you feel is important. Also post your pic and your boat. Keep it clean, socialise in other threads, this is a members catalog. If you can not find the time to upload pictures, post anyway your age and occupation.

My name is Patrik Tegelberg born 1972 in sweden. I am doing my last year to get a masters degree in engineering physics. Polite people are more important than others.

Some pics of:

me
parents house taken from garage of boat builds
my boat
my design
how it looks when radiobox get stuck on mold so you have to hack it free
me again
double 3 mm alurudders on 15 cc nitro boat. These bent during run, need thicker for high powered boats.

Will Nichols originally from Ft.Lauderdale FL, now in the middle of nowhere Blue Ridge, GA. Im 21 and mainly mess with mustangs and rc boats 8) Got a Aeromarine Team Believer with a OPS 65 Gold head, Insane Gen1 Mono with a BuZZ Bomb fullmod 260, a RCBoatWorks Gen1 Stryker hydro which will have a SS Fullmod 260 in it soon.

I have an Aeromarine Jesse James that is almost complete and two other empy hulls.

Rick, 32, Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP), Most important: My 4 year old son Joshua! I've raced R/C cars for many years. I'm building my first boat...
I uh... don't have a boat yet, at least one that is usable. The closest I have is a brand new Zen 260 waiting for a boat.

I love mustangs 65-73 80-present. Below is my project before and soon to be pics.

hey everyone, my names Alex, im 14, live in pembroke pines, FL and love RC boats....'

only being 8-9months into this hobby, im already a few thousand dollars deep into my projects and have got 2 projects being built, one running, and two in the makings.

i already had an interest in all things mechanical, and thanks to a K&B toy boat, i was hooked.....since then, it has been a rapid climb from toys r us boats to high quality FG hulls with BL setups. And the way i see it, its only going to progress from there...

besides this great hobby, i also kayak, snorkel (go to Bimini every year), and just love to tinker....give me an old blender and ill probably have it in 128 peices spread across my floor and checking if the motor can be swapped over to one of my boat hulls.

hey Corbin nice setup. Is that a P1SC or D1SC? I built a blowthrough turbo motor (327 ford stroker, PT67GTQ turbo... put it in a 85 RX7). I plan to do another blowthrough setup on my new race car, just cant decide whether i wanna build another blower motor or turbo motor.


Heres my baby... just over 560rwhp on 15lbs of boost, 632rwhp @ 15lbs of boost & 60shot, with the A/F 10.3-10.5:1 across the board



btw... if you were to put a 4" or so extended cowl, and run a 4 or 5" pipe up by the cowl from the inlet of the blower you'd pick up about 2lbs or so of boost I experimented with even using just two velocity stacks (one from Procharger specificly for the F1R, and used one from Vortech for a X-trim.. picked up almost 3lbs of boost, datalog proved )

Its the p1sc.... I did everything I could to stay with the flat hood..Alot of boys run around here on the street with the cowls and they don't need them.. They have overplayed them for me so I wanted the other more stock look.. sure the motor breathing threw the exhaust and the constant whine doesn't help the stock effect.. neither does the Fiberglass doors, fenders, hood, trunk, and bumpers but hey you cant have it all I guess..
