Default customize 1/12Miss bud hull - suggestions?

Hello all,
I have just received my new Miss Bud 1/12th Hull. It is hull w/canopy and motor mounts at this point. I have ordered the following parts for this boat but would like to hear other suggestions as to engine and size, flex shaft or not, what servos, etc.etc.etc. By the way, look at the was teh DS tube was mounted in the hull. Very,,,,uhh, cheaply. could have used a different design on that part!
Parts:
Aeromarine auto bailer
Aeromarine stainless - steel water outlet
Du-bro kwik switch mount
Du-bro waterproof pushrod seals
clear lexan

Please...let the free thinking begin.

Looking forward to hearing your ideas!

Yo dbm0011[8D]

I dont know much bout MB's, but i think the 1/12th scale MB is used with a .15 Dynamite Engine (stock)

Have a look on [link=http://www.towerhobbies.com/listings/cat-cat-g.html]Tower Hobbies[/link] and have a look at the O.S. .15 engines...
You could also just have a look at the stock engine, the Dynamite one..

Or if you wanna go really wild, maybe you should try a .21 engine?!?!?!, i know ppl that have done this, and their MB's get on ok...
[8D]

As for servos, i dunno

My miss bud has the .15 but I think they originally came out with a .12 and the upgraded to the .15 dynamite. also I`ve heard that the .21 is a little big to squeeze in but it can be done. The big prop upgrade from a stock prop is a 535 octura (i think Octura) make sure you buy some good pushrod boots and make sure your radio box is good and water proof... Gary

Default RE: customize 1/12Miss bud hull - suggestions?

Hello all.
Well My hull is still sitting there waiting on all the parts to arrive. I did receive tha du-bro Kwik switch mount and the du-bro push rod seals.
I should have gotten the du-bro kwik switch mount with charging jack. I went with a small rechargeable battery pack. The push rod seals ...I just dont know. They look awful big, and yes trimming them down a bit would make it look better, but dont think that the boot would actually be water tight. I am going to order both the bru-line push rod seals and the water tight seals from aeromarine. I like to have options. I purchased a new Futaba radio w/servo's kit. Also purchased a High torque servo for the steering, and fail safe for the throttle, water and fuel line.
I am at a crossroads as to what type of rudder/strut assembly to consider for this. I am going to put a .21 in it. Hoping to give pilotrc's 55mph a run for the money.
Anyhelp is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

please do give me a run for my money I am just looking for a reason to put a 32 in it....lol
hey if there is anything I can do to help please feel free to email or PM me One thing to keep in mind run a bigger turn fin mine is .5 inch longer and wider if you run the stock on it will not turn at when you on the gas also run a bigger rudder the Miss Llumar rudder is bigger than the Miss Bud hope this will help you.
Also if there is any parts I can help you get please let me know the Hobbie shop here is great on getting part and hold a lot of boat parts all you need to do is pay the shipping and the coast of the parts and I can have them sent to you

There is NO differeance between the NEW Miss Budweiser and Miss LLumar, other than color and Decals. They upgraded Miss Bud this year with flex shaft and new on\off switch.

they must have sent you an old one that did not move, because i just bought a miss bud 3 weeks ago and it is identical to the miss Llumar. (other than pain and decals). flex shaft and updated switch.

The os and or aquacraft .18 will fit nicely into your proboat in fact it would be the best thing you could do, also you need to loose the stock strut and put an adjustible one on like a miss vegas has, also keep the radio and fuel tank as far forward as possible. With a little break in time and strut adjustment you'll be cruzin pretty fast with that set up,,, good luck and remember hydros rule!!!!!!!!!!!!!
