Default new Aquacraft U18 Miss Vegas Deuce

I just took my new Vegas Deuce down to my dock for the first few break in runs,I ran 4 tanks without one stall the whole time,high speed needle was 4 turns out,real rich,sputtering gas out pipe,leaned it to 3 7/8 for 3rd run,and 3 3/4 for 4th run,really love the boat so far,but will do a bigger tank upgrade later,I have the grimracer prop and turn fin,will put them on to finish break in,it cavitates to easy when going slow,but doing great so far,I'm downloading the videos to YouTube right now!

I really love the built in fail safe in the Tactic radio and receiver,that will put servos to nuetral if it goes out of range,just read it in the Tactic radio manual last night,I was thinking I was going to have to buy one!

You're never going to be able to really open that Deuce up if that's where you are planning to run. You're also risking destroying it if you miss time a corner. I know you're still in the process of breaking it in but being limited on how fast you can run by having to avoid things on the water isn't going to give you the true picture of where the boats at or what needle setting you really should be running at

Yes,I've been looking at area's to take it on some shore spots and islands so I can set up a table and chairs,and be able to make passes back and forth close to me so I can see and hear it good,there's a great spot just a few minutes away,I'm looking for a good folding table to get,may take after work sometime this week,I also ride to the house I work at on the lake on my jet ski,I may take it with me��..my brother may get a white Vegas Deuce soon too!

It's still fun riding from my dock,I just can't see it as good once I get out to the open area,not worried about hitting anything though��...except a floating stick!

Wish my dock was out on the straight away,I'm back in-between other docks,I'm going to get a table and chair and take it to a place along the shore by tho weekend,also drive it along the pontoon boat while my brother drives,couldn't wait to break it in though and start getting it adjusted,very glad I got the Vegas Deuce,I'm running 30% nitro,but may go to 50% after this gallon,..trying to find where other people drive rc boats on Lake Lanier,I've only found the south Atlanta boaters club online.

You should get your neighbors involved so you can use their dock.
Also your engine will break in MUCH Better if you can get it at Full Throttle for extended periods (Multiple Laps).
To really break in Properly it needs to be under Full Load\Throttle so the engine gets up to full running temp and Full Heat Expansion.
