Default Ride of your life K&B .67 in a 33" wood mono!

Here in the past few weeks iv been pulling more and more hardware out of storage and cleaning the stuff up, selling what i don't want anymore or giveing it away if need be, or if there is a good cause! While looking today i found a 33" old barrel back mono that a buddy gave me some time back, Thought to myself..just got done rebuilding that K&B...wonder what a 11cc 33" 7lb boat would look like. This build started directly after that thought. all out the boat would blow off the water any time i wanted it to, and a few times i don't want it to, but! if i tighten down on the carbs venturi size witch IS a option with the current carb, i could get the boat tamed down enough to have a good fast no loss boat..at this point if the boat exploded i would have about a $50 loss in the RX! So iv thought about it and im calling the boat No loss.

Well, at least I finally got a soda out of the machine. Which was better than I did playing the slots at the Hilton.[]

Got the engine to fire this morning! them big K&B's have quite a ring to them thats for sure! Had to shut it down as soon as I got it to fire...that pipe needs a muffler! I really cant beleave how easy it starts! I pull the glow plug out and spin the motor whole holding my finger over the tuned pipe until I see fuel start to hit the paper towel I put over the head, reinstall glow plug and pop she goes, the idle is 100% amazing to me, it wants to idle like a zenoah!
