Stephen you got yours pretty early I have #4763 and found it's receipt, $113,89 incl. S&H from hobbylinc in 1999. Spare the box, it's numbered, experience and time has shown that these things tend to have a higher value in the future. How far in the future is never guaranteed though

I also use Raboesch for the drivetrain but it's in brass, triplets with 35mm props. I've also tried 32mm graupner speeds and discarded them 'cause I didn't get what I wanted out of them. This might have been because of the weight, 2,5kg (+-5,5lbs). Try to keep the weight below the 2k's and I don't think you'll have an issue with speed with the chosen drivetrain. I tried to keep my weight down using only one motor. I guess should've also gone for the ABS tubes! BTW you can put a number on you zebrad PT, check this link out http://www.ptboats.org/ when it's in the air again. Be good! --> Eugène
