Wildcat EP re-inforced hull & motor upgrade project w/pictures

Ok so I picked this boat up with all stock electronics & radio dirt cheap as it was dropped & damaged on the front end so I decided to make it into a project. I laid fiberglass on motor mount area with epoxy & micro balloons as the ABS seamed too thin in the center tub to add a bigger motor. I kept stock motor mount & just redrilled it. The motor is a NEW Reedy 2-pole 35.8mmx45mm 3300kv (45amp draw so I kept stock 50amp esc) with Aquacraft water cooling coils. It's the motor that comes in the sc10 short course truck I got from a fellow member. Octura coupler 1/8" to .130 flex cable. Impulse 3s 11.1v 25c 2500mah Lipo battery. I also removed one of the rudders (left side) & sharpened the other rudder. bottom sponson's were wet sanded with 600 grit sandpaper. I plan too start with stock prop until I get a prop shim too run bigger props & then plan too test m445, x640, x643-3blade etc... with the hobby king K1 RPM & KV reader I just got. Any suggestions or comments good or bad are welcome!!
