Nope, it's a gasser. That being said, here's some places to look for hardware:

As far as "controllers go, Futaba, Airtronics and JR all have good reputations and you will probably get people telling you all three

Fortunately the Miss Bud has a lot of parts that you can get from other sources which can't be said for a lot of RTR boats.They used a lot of Prather hardware which can still be gotten through Hyperformance Products, www.hyperprod.com .I think that you paid a tad too much for basically a stripped-down boat.

These hulls handle well if they are set up right ...
Finding a new engine is not an issue ... finding a clutch that will fit may be problematic ...

Try Bonzi Sports or Enforcer RC ... they are familiar with Pro Boats and have some replacement parts in stock ... Customer service is very helpful and they are both american companies ...
