RE: Battery lead to short

Go for it, it'll be ok. If you can, ditch the Tamiya style connectors, they're complete junk. Swap over to some Deans connectors and you won't go back.

RE: 4v Lead Acid

Great Information, thank you much!

Now onto another question.....what would be a cheap plug in wall charger to use for 4v lead acid batteries? All I can find are for batteries 6v and up. Even...

4v Lead Acid

I don't have a 4v specific charger, so I'm closely monitoring the battery as it charges. It's a 4v 10ah battery. How many cells is this? What should the peak voltage be when fully charged?

RE: Aquacraft Hammer with Brushless 8L motor

No matter what you do you should reinforce the bottom of the boats hull with resin and fiberglass cloth. If you're keeping the submerged drive you might even consider glassing up around the motor...

RE: Aquacraft Hammer with Brushless 8L motor

Here are a couple of pics of the Hammer EP converted to surface drive. I'm now using 16 cells instead of 14 and the boat is a good bit quicker...enough to where it's kind of boring going back to 14!...

RE: SV27 - Batteries after dunk

You did the right thing by cutting off the shrink, it makes drying them out a lot easier. Just dry them out and they should be just fine.

You didn't mention if you run in fresh or salt water....

RE: gel-cell battery

That's a verrrrrrrrrrrrrrry slow charge, so going over a couple hours isn't going to hurt anything. If the battery was dead it would take 11 hours and 40 minutes to charge it full.

RE: Micro rigger (12 inches)

Even if you do have the money, you can still make your own and save probably $60. Plus, it's fun and rewarding.

OSE has the most reasonably priced micro hardware I've seen yet. ...

RE: Second home brew mono

Jan, do you have a picture of the "wings"? This sounds like it might work for something of mine.

RE: Through the hull or transom

I use a gundert on one of my boats, but if I had to do it again I would use this way. It has less drag and works great.

RE: Through the hull or transom

With your hull it should work all the time. Even with a surface drive, if properly placed will work very well. Use large diameter fuel tubing and a brass tubing that's as large as you can use and...

RE: Dumas Chris-Craft 1940 Barrel Back

Ditto that. I wasted over $110 on 2 of those POS's and springs and brushes. Titan's are cheap and reliable. For the money, IMO they're dang tough to beat.

If you do swap out motors and have...

RE: Second home brew mono

Jan, it being a V hull would you offset the driveshaft, or angle it to the side a bit? I thought that the driveshaft should exit the hull about 1/8'' up from the keel. Is there a better way to do...

RE: Dumas Chris-Craft 1940 Barrel Back

Wow that's a beautifull boat! I don't think I can dig up that much patience (or time) to build something like that.

Water wouldn't have ruined the motor. The motors can actually run under...

RE: Who's got proof they own a real FE?

What actually constitutes a "FE"? Are you looking for a certain number? Most of my boats are electric....I think they're fast. People stop and say "Is that electric? Wow, that's fast." That's...

RE: NQD Budget Cyclone Build

The motors are the EXACT SAME minus a bearing. How can it "not even hold a candle to the cordite"?

Given both motors are run in the same, they'll run side by side all day long.
