Default Noob ?? Miss Circus Circus

I have been eying a used Miss Circus , it is a 1/8 hydro designed for a .67 I think, can this be turned into a gasser? Its a fairly large boat ( 44inches) I was hoping to find someone that had made or ran one. I don't like the larger nitro engine's just have had bad luck keeping them going! Thanks for your input!

it's been done before here is a pic I pulled from another site. It would take a bit of work but can be done.

(edit) looks like a rmck rear exhaust would fit. hmm I may have to think about that.

Looks like a trick setup, probably be worth it just to have something a bit different. Go for it mate!
Cheers, Chris

I wouldn't do it with a Dumas. The kit's materials aren't that great and the extra power may blow the boat apart if it wasn't build very well. If you want to go that route, build a Circus from plans, enlarged to 120%, otherwise the boat could roll due to the extra torque from the gas engine
