If you plan to race, you should use the QD. The G42 is not legal.

if you buy a quickdraw go to Mitch the owner of quickdraw directly great guy. be prepared for regular sceduled maintenance cuz the QD is a full race engine and requires lots of attention to keep it runnin full blast. nothin wrong with that but just be aware of that fact.

ok well a 44" hydro and a 35cc hydro is a no go.......... not enuff boat and too much engine.
you would spend more time in the "go fetch it" boat than anything else from all the blowovers you'd be doin with the distinct possibility of hydraulicing the engine with certain damage......not good
what hull are you lookin at . or put the big engine in the 56" hull and swap the 23cc into the hydro. the 23 has plenty of poop for the hydro and if it dont look at the different 260 builders

The g23 in a 44" hydro will give you all the speed you will need. This sounds like a good combo to get your feet wet with.
i had a 45" shovelnose with a 25cc J&G/pum engine and its was too much on the edge, oh yeah it was fast but tryin to keep it on the water was a chore for sure.

speed wise ........with a real good 23 there is no reason with the right set up that 60mph can be reached

I talked to Marine specialties last week and they are not taking orders for the g42 right now, apparantly they were having trouble with getting the exhaust systems and decided to put it on the back burner untill next year..FYI

Hey ZAD ,
When it comes to HYDRO's , Larry ( FASTRAT ) knows his stuff . And he knows motors ( both weedie's , Zenoahs , QD's and chainsaw's ) ....
IMO - I would do as FASTRAT suggested .

Obtaining a pipe for a G42 is the biggest draw back to it.Unless you have the ability to design the pipe and make it,steer clear from it until Marine Specialties makes pipes available.

Listen to Fastrat, he knows hydros.

thanks guys, when I look around that step up from a pro mod g26 starts getting awfull pricey ,as I seem to sink my boat already on a regular basis I will probably be good to stick to a little less money and speed

Well , ya know that the 26PUm broke the 100 MPH mark , right ? Sooooooo , as far as speed goes , seems the 260 is kinda competition for the QD .

If i were in your shoes id have Fast RAT build you a 26 zen he knows what hes doing thats for sure plus if you want to race the classes are better than if you were to go with a QD 25
