Tylerjames91 What about a jetdrive ? like the graupner units they have the thrust reverser, still would'nt have neutral but the boat would fly!

why not go with a t max or hpi savage tranny, they are from nitro trucks with reverse as an option in the HPI trannys. all selected from the radio. the t maxx and revo's i dont know if they have reverse. then you'd just need to run a low RPM grabbing clutch bell and away you go. nutral,forwards and reverse

what about having the v-12 spin a generator (a spare 12volt motor will do ) then driving the shafts with regular motor/esc combo? rather like the diesel electric set up in locomotives.
