Default Finaly!, i run my jet stream 1000 today! (with some questions)

A great boat no doubt! my first nitro boat

i have a couple of question here. would the large .32 size stock engine be able to spin a larger prop to make the boat faster? IF,
how big prop can it handle before its going to overheating? (anyone with experience here?)

with ur stock engine u can play prop diameter from 1.5- 1.9, it's kinda trial n' error coz lots of factor need to consider such as prop height and angle, prop pitch, btw, what's the stock prop size?

overheating is not a direct issue with oversize prop coz for me boat will run crappy with oversize prop and u'll get rid of it before ur engine get overheat, just make sure ur getting water cooling...u'll know if u hit the right prop coz boat is pretty responsive during acceleration, no lots of cavitation, engine sounds getting high rpm and boat moving fast.

wave waker, stock prop size is 40x1.6 (pretty small with alot of pitch). and the engine is already water cooled

vamp131, you mean that it stops when u put some speed on it? have u check the fuel screw so the engine gets enough fuel?
(or maybe on the other hand it gets to MUCH fuel?)
