If you plan on doing any type of racing, sorry to say, but yepper, it sure is outdated. [&o] No other tunnel has a turn fin. Don't know if you'd be able to sell it for over $100 to buy the TS2.. Then again, seen stranger things on ebay.. [X(]

yeah that burnt piece of toast that was said to look like mary went for more than a hundred. personally i'd go with the lapcat and feel pretty good doing it. pretty work man! being a gasser i am curious what kinda speed should you get? damn sure looks fast.

I have a couple of gasers myself ( super-g and a fun cruiser)......I am not sure what to expect for speed...I was told that these boats run and handle great!!!!!!! I read in a few articles that the boat will run in the high 30's stock......and should turn on a dime at full speed.... Well see...I had one of these about 4 years ago. This was my first nitro boat. I felt that it was a little to much for a first timmer......So i sold it and bough a freedom rz (way to slow). Then I went into gasers. I am waiting on the hinge mount for the motor...All I have let to do is cut,solder and connect the cables... Then im off to the lake for a test run........wohoo cant wait[8D]
