Default It was a Kyosho Jet Stream, not anymore...

Well after many many many hours of work on my Kyosho Jet Stream GP10 it has had a major make over... Here are the stages my boat went through... The first 2 pictures are the boat as I got it, the 3rd and 4rth pictures are after some paint, and installation of a new engine (XTM 247 to replace the OS .10) also added at this point was a clutch setup to replace the direct drive.

After many different configurations I decided that the cover needed some slight modification to fit the exhaust under it. One thing led to another and the cover ended up getting completely rebuilt. The After the rebuilt the cover still weighs ruffly the same. Also added were some billet aluminum parts (scoop, water intake for cooling, and the water exit) the steerable outdrive was replaced with an aluminum fixed outdrive and rudder combo (not pictured), the transom was reinforced with plywood and fiberglass, as well as the stuffing tube (tied into the transom). The transom also had a cosmetic stainless sheet added to the transom. So this is where my project is at now, it should be done very soon. Let me know what ya think. Please excuse my messy work bench... I need to take care of that...

NICE!!!

How will it handle that engine?? I'm sure it'll be great on a straight line.

Here are pics of my jetstream... I've been running it since 1990!!! Long ago I had tossed the reversed mounted stock .10 and reduction and put in an OS FP20 M...
I had another identical engine laying around in it's box since 1990....
These pics are during break in an pool closed during winter.
It 's a fun little boat. I wish the hull was a bit wider...handling would be better.
Anyway, the hull is so old it's cracked in many places...[sm=pirate.gif] ... Thank god for Cyano & epoxy glue.. LOL
Was thinking of making a fiber mold of it... don't know if it's worth it.

Hey that boat looks firmilar , I think it will handle fine as I am machining some adjustable trim tabs and turning fins for it. Even if it only handles well going straight it will look sexy doing it
