hummmmm when you do find one let me know. 50+ MPH man you are looking at somewhere around $850.00+ depending on what set up you go with. The best I can recomend is to go to a race or 2, the norm is at least 2-3 boats for sell if luck is there , you may just get what you are wanting maybe even better. As for new, 50+ for that price is really hard to come by.

HaljmAC,
I agree with you 100%. I have a mark anderson sport 40 hull, that I paid $400 for,(hull alone) , I've got a Hawk 7.5 that I have $1500 in it. No radios or rx included. Mack 7.5 motors are selling for $450 no header. My cheapest boat is a microburst 21, with novarossi 3.5, I have at least $800 in it. Dave what you're looking for is short of a miracle. Go look in these two list bots and see what guys are selling their used boats for, rcboats.com intlwaters.com , good luck to you

There are a few RTR boats on the market that will run 30MPH for around $300.00 or less. Check out tower hobbie or horizon hobby. If you decide to go with one of these boats, go over every thing on it, then go over every thing again, even take the engine down and clean it out, to make sure there is not any left over metal shavings. Check that every thing is in its place and secure.

I have a brand new Seducer last generation before the change, lime green kevlar layup, with all speedmaster hardware, custom motor mount, Macs polished pipe, radio box, less radio gear, with a NIB OS 81 mounted and ready to go. I think it will do 50MPH. It is a classy boat and very nice looking. Oh, it has a custom metal tank and all fuel and water lines installed. Has flex shaft, collett, drivedog and stuffing box installed also.

Price $500 plus 1/2 the shipping.

Regards Curt

Hey Dave,

That's a good buy Kurt has there that boat will do over 50 definately, prop it right you'll get more. Hope you are going to run it in the flat lands I live in Colorado mile up and I believe that boat will do 50 here.

Kurt,
Put it on e bay, you'll get more than that for it. You can set the amount you will sell the boat at, when they reach it, however wants it will keep bidding, bidders don't see the amount you want for the boat. If you sell, don't ship the boat undill $ is in your paypal account & you have transferred the $ out of paypal into your account at your bank.

the cajun bullet was gunned at 64 mph and the nintey eagle rocked in at 87. i have some other stuff to. e-bay sounds like a good idea also. i have never sold anything on line so i will give it a go. i just put a new coat of paint on the eagle. there is a pic of the bullet on the thread ( show me your toys) ill post a pic of the eagle wed or thu. afer i put it back together.
also have a twin 90 eagle that went 95+.
