Default SI 3 (Screaming Flea)

I got one of Selph Inflicted's 20 series and now in the the process of putting the kit together. It's going super quick and had time to make several aluminum bits for it.

She gained some extra weight. Wonder how fast this one will go.

Oh yea now that looks intimidating! With all the extra adjustments you built into the engine plate it should make tweaking much simpler. A front wing might even be a good idea to try on this one.

can't wait to see some action.

You are going to have to invest some time in creating a wing or spoiler to keep that screamer on the water. Nice job! I am going to have to pick one of those bad boys up soon. They sure are fast and look to be a lot of fun. Nice aluminum work by the way! Please tell us what engine you were running. Dennis

It's an original 3 to 4 year old side exhaust OS 46 AX. The long tuned pipe pictured was from my Jett .60LX. She now has a Ultra thrust tuned pipe that spins a 9X6 prop at almost 18,000 rpm. The only upgrades I have done has been changing out the beaqings and treating the engine parts with a Low friction treatment.

If you want to go fast you first have to start with a great hull. I'll do this for you..... if you buy a SI 3 kit and bearing set I'll treat your engine.
