2+ hp..... 30mph..... [X(] Lets hope that these are very cautious estimates cos they're not very impressive for the price.... sorry [:o]

they do look hot, thing that gets me though is the April 1st immediate release, kinda fishy! :D

Hehe, no, I promise its not an April Fools joke at all.

They are faster than 30mph but thats a conservative claim. Its (they are) a big boat and while that doesnt sound earth shattering its plenty for a novice driver. Just for comparison a Blackjack 26 BL boat registers 31mph on GPS, stock with Lipo power. A stock Zenoha engine claims 2.2hp and ours is about the same at 2.16hp so 2+ hp is and acceptable claim. Besides those figures change with altitude and conditions. When the engine breaks in a bit the speed is closer to 40mph @ 2200ft above sea level. lol.

Which engine and size (cc) are you putting in them?

Notice that the prices are retail, not street price. Everybody uses a retail price then sells them cheaper.
Those are some big boats to push across the water but do look good.

So you say it's "Like a Zenoah", I'm assuming not a Zenoah...what brand do you use as your base engine before you turn it into a "Venom Engine"?

The first 2 ones looks great and very professional, the 3rd one look like the cheap ones from China. There are plenty on ebay.

2 Beauties and 1 Ugly Beast.

It would be nice to see more pictures, especially the hardware and engines.
