Lightbulb weight difference

Being new to rc gas boating,(2yrs) I'm interested in maybe exchanging my homelite engine for a zenoah .I have an enforcer hull.Would there be any weight savings .I know the zenoah will spin up better than the homelite. Sound feasible?

Yes there should be not sure how much tho but the zenoah is just a far more superior motor kn general.

Bare motor vs Bare motor (no pipes, clutch etc) I would say the zenoah is around half the weight. It is also more compact, higher reving, and capable of more power.

thanks for the info,I don't expect a rocketship, but I think performance will pick up a lot.

I remember hearing a few enforcer owners appreciating healthy speed and performance increases with just switching from a stock Homie to a stock Zen. Tweak the zen and you will see a whole lot more no doubt!
