Default NQD Storm Engine PX-16

Hey all,

I've got a NQD Storm Engine PX-16 and I'd like to modify it so I can make it go faster.

My aim is to get similar speed like this NQD Storm Engine PX-16; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtfBXsD9u-U

Any ideas on what I should do?

Also, because it's a cheap boat, I don't want to spend a fortune on it.

You won't be able to make a boat like that go that fast unless you want to spend tons of money. You'd need two brushless esc's, two brushless motors, and at least two lipo batteries and a charger for them. Plus you'll probably need all new drive hardware, new props, watercooling, a new radio system, and an actual rudder system for the boat to handle the power. I don't mean to discourage you but trying to put that much power into a boat like this (even though that guy did it) is just going to create a lot of headaches and rack up a huge bill, I would know, i've thought about it before. I've come to realize the cheapest way to get a fast boat is buying a new or used (especially used) aquacraft or proboat brushless and running it stock.

G'day all,

I had forgotten about this project until I found it in the garage today and now I'm in the mood to get this baby going!

I'm a little unsure when It comes to the brushless motors. I'm not sure if I should run a twin or single setup or what size brushless motor/s I should be looking at. My aim is to get this baby swimming 80KM+ (50MPH+) on a little bit of a budget.

I have attached some images of how the hull sits at the moment. Soon I'll start cleaning it up and give it a paint or something to make it look the goods.

I realize this is a older post but the above comment is far from the truth! That is unless you consider $60.00 a ton of money. I have built about a dozen of these, all twin brushless motors and everyone of them cost me under $60 to build. This boat is actually a decent handling hull up to about 45-50mph. They are a great way for someone to get a quick boat up and running and would even make a great budget class racer too.
