i had one but never did end up running it and sold it. I do have a brand new uncut header for it though, so if you decide to get that motor, let me know and you can have this header for pretty much free.

WoW your boat is light, 220grams is less than 1/2 lb for everything but motor? That will make whole boat less than 1 1/2lbs ready to run. Thats really good for such a big boat as far as I can tell. I hope my boat will be that light.

i just saw that one a few days ago. i dont know anything about it but it looks like it would be a real good sport engine. put it in a .21 size rigger and ill bet it would do well.

And then report back here, there are probably lots of people who would be interested in knowing how this engine works...

hay cap not to offend, just trying to do a reality check for ya....

a 21 rigger under 3lbs is extremely light. a tad under 4 is about where you want to be.

what size is your fuel tank? it looked small to me for even a 21, let alone a 45.

looks like your sponsons are about 10" long? this would be small even for a 21.

Hi,Ron told me running a .21 you'll need a 10oz tank in your boat,thats if your racing and depends on your motor on how much fuel it eats. Plus I glad your going with a .21 in your boat.The.21 puts out more power and higher rpms and lighter weight then the.46 you were thinking about getting.[>:]

did you buy your motor directly through them? I was thinkin of tryin out the 7220M for my rigger but havent seen anyone selling these motors in the states.

Is this the motor you have? Is it side or front exhaust?

Believe It,This is the motor I'm ordering form them too.It has more power and higher rpms too.then my .21.My .21 is the older model.The 7220m is the newer model.Its 65 dollars shipping is 10 dollars.I'm waiting to here from them.I'd emailed them about two days go.The exaust is side mount.I'm not saying there the best motors on the markets but the way I rev that .21 before I put my boat in the water,I'd should blowend the conecting rod by now.I do some guick revs to clean the carb out before I throw her in the water.I inspect my motor every fith run.No sighn or cracks or anything wrong.I does have a heavy conecting rod.I'm new the nitro motors and if I'd blow it up or recked it,What! I'm out of less then a hundred dollars! then being out of 300 to 500 dollars!Unitl I'd mastered in them realy good,Then I'll get the 300 to 500 dollars motors. When I hear from them I'll let you know.[8D] I did get a marry christmass email from them.
