I once built a deep V, 36" long power boat. It had a 15cc Merco water cooled glow engine, fitted with twin tanks and was started using a pulley belt, flywheel at one end and 12v electric starter at the other. It was quick, so much so that I ended up putting a load of molten lead in the hull to stop it taking off. If I remember it had an X racing prop with a diameter of about 1.5 inchs. The only place to run it was in Cams Bay, Portsmouth harbour. Right opposite Fleetlands.

If I can find a pic of it I'll scan it and post it.

This is the only picture I can find of mine.

These two are 1/8 size, both supposedly do 60mph, with 0-60 in about 4-5 seconds. I haven't measured the speed, but they are bl**dy fast!

One of them has a F1 type shell, and the other a Subaru Imprezza.

I have another smaller one (1/10) I think, but just wasnt fast enough, but it did look good.

I really need to get my cars stripped/cleaned/rebuilt... but im lazy, so going to be looking for someone else to do it. Theres a shop in Southampton City Center, hobbystores, who say they will do it for a reasonable price, so will probably try there.

half the fun........

.............stripping them and rebuilding them yourself. I'm new to the sport but already I've stripped my engine, starter and gearbox servos without too much trouble - you've just got to be brave and remember were all the bits go afterwards. There are sseveral good forum like ours here (not as good of course - and I mean that ) were there are plenty of tecnos to lend advice - I've found lots of them equally as freindlty as us lot on here - infact I'm attendin my first RC Cruise, I mean RC Meet (Ridio Control Meeting) this sunday.......note to self - "musn't forget anorack"
