Well, you're going to have to tell us which Wild Thing that you're talking about as there are several boats with the same name. In any case you are comparing apples to oranges as the SW 36 is a RTF boat and one Wild Thing is a hull kit from AC Model Boats and another is built from plans plus I think that there is at least one more boat with the WT label.
You'd think that after a while the manufacturers would come up with some more original names. There are a bunch of Eagle's, Hawk's plus other boats named after predatory birds and poisonous spiders.

thanks ron the wild thing is based on john finch designe its made of plan
i have a shockwave at the moment but am concerned what if i crack the hull
then i cant get another one . so i am thinking of getting the wild thing as a back
up boat i will trancfer most of the hard ware to the wild thing as it just comes with
the hull and i can get more at very reasonable prices i am very new at boating and will
most likley crack the hull during my learning stages

The John Finch Wild Thing is a great handling boat when properly built. I have a .12 version and 2 of my racing and messin' around buddies have the .21 versions.

Another vote for the Wild Thing that John Finch designed. Mine is fast and handles like it's on a rail. An easy build also.
