Default Maus champ 45

Hi everyone

Just a quick question. I have a Maus Motor Sport Champ 45, and it goes wonderfully. However I am concerned about the cornering. In the instructions it states that the boat should "be able to corner at full speed". How small a radius does this allow for in the turn. Comments from other owners and modelers would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Turns......
If you are running the IMPBA course. The 1/4 mile oval has a 15' turn radius, 1/3 mile oval has a 35' radius, and the 1/5 mile oval(used for electric boats) has a 30' radious

Maus hulls are on the narrow side compared to other tunnel boats. They are probably using the IMPBA 35' radius turn for an example. I have had some that would turn almost right angles but not recommended
