Awl thanks a bunch Tom Becoming somewhat carfull after first seeing that small flex sheft, I did decide to keep it stock. I I have a stock motor out of a Rio, 3 blade prop, 7.4V battery. and a well maintained frex shaft. I tested it out today and it was perfect. Don't need speed to reteive boats just a little power, so I thank I may have just enough that the shaft should last... Thanks for the heads up. Your input is always welcome.
PS: Get on back out here soon as you are able...

Here is Cris Cross with his Super Modified....Mini Mono that sounds at looks like a mini Snap On Spartan..and myself in the Stock mini...I had to Short track,cut off, and cheat to keep up with his bad boy...I had a little weird glitch in my steering and didnt turn and went straight in to the Skimmer where my camera got the shot...hit hard but didnt damage the body at all....but did snap off the epoxy on the motor mount it lasted threw the end of vid...I think those little stock micro servos will be an Issue...Cris's mini mono steering servo also quit a little later in the Day also...,..............Good Fun though......did I mention how much I missed Hansen Dam H20.......Happy Days again....
