I need a replacement carb for the LRP .28. They are discontinued and I can't find one. I searched online and everyone is out...even Tower Hobbies.

Does anyone has a link to one or can I use...

RE: AquaCraft U-18 Miss Vegas Hydro Thread_Make it Fast!

I will try and run the boat today, but a few chips under the boat(one being 2" long) is a problem, so no running until I get it fixed. I am more committed to gas boats, so this may realistically end...

RE: AquaCraft U-18 Miss Vegas Hydro Thread_Make it Fast!

I got the engine going. Could a loose flywheel keep it from running? It was loose and I had to add a shim or two and set it to 3 turns out and it fired and ran. Hopefully I will get out to the pond...

RE: FedEx shipping damage.

Honestly, think about how much it will cost to repair it over the aggravation of the claim and the headache involved, and go from there. I had damages and it was not worth the hassle, but that was...

RE: AquaCraft U-18 Miss Vegas Hydro Thread_Make it Fast!

I am running the .18 CV-RM engine. I will try it in the morning. It was broken in and ran on 30% nitro and I was trying to run it on 20%...big mistake I see. I need to get some 30% tomorrow. maybe...

RE: AquaCraft U-18 Miss Vegas Hydro Thread_Make it Fast!

I just checked the online manual and it said 2 turns from closed on hsn and 1/2 turn from flush on lsn...2 seems too lean...I will definitely try the 3 1/2 out then. Also what is the best running...

I am the proud owner of a MV. It has an OS .18,3.5 pipe, Grimracer turn fin,manifold cooling coil, and a M435/3 metal prop which are the upgrades so far. Quick question though, what is the stock...

RE: Proboat Miss Elam

I am not too sure as I kept it at factory settings. I will take it to the local pond where a few guys who frequent this site will hopefully have time to look at it for me. I ran 16:1 and retuned, but...

Proboat Miss Elam

Picked up a Miss Elam from of all places...a pawn shop. It was lightly used and I got a descent deal on it. I ran it for the past few days and it seems pretty fast so far. The Zenoah starts easily...

RE: THE OFFICIAL SHOCKWAVE 36 THREAD

I guess the main problem from what others say is oil % content...being that 18% is the minimum.

RE: THE OFFICIAL SHOCKWAVE 36 THREAD

I run Odonnel l 20% RTR fuel. I called Horizon and they said that they have not had a case of a broken flexshat in years...needless to say they are sending me out all the parts lost.

RE: THE OFFICIAL SHOCKWAVE 36 THREAD

I will probably get the Hughey one and let Horizon send me one and the lost hardware. A shame as the boat was running great. Where can I find one? I found a place called Rocket City Racing. Also,...

RE: THE OFFICIAL SHOCKWAVE 36 THREAD

Went back to the pond yesterday and had a few pretty good runs, before the flexshaft broke. It had about 9 runs on it before it let go. When it broke, I lost everything on the solid portion(balanced...

I tried to order it from the lhs,...

RE: THE OFFICIAL SHOCKWAVE 36 THREAD

Alright, went back to the pond and this time I ported the exhaust header and richened it up a bit. It ran strong and was smoother through the powerband. It seemed just as fast, but it still isn't as...

RE: THE OFFICIAL SHOCKWAVE 36 THREAD

Bought a used .32 off of the Bay and dropped it in the Shockwave. Took her out and she ran great, but one very noticeable thing is that it took a while for the engine/pipe to clear out.

RE: THE UNOFFICIAL SHOCKWAVE 36 THREAD

I finally got the carb in. I opted for the stock one instead of the ST one as I was dissuaded from a member who stopped running it. Should hopefully be running tomorrow if all goes well. Which hole...
