I don't think that I've got any good "under the hood" shots but I know I've got one when it had a Sikk in it.

As far as the nitro boats go, there's quite a few of them, mostly .12 powered and one .21 'rigger. Two of them have never seen water and only tried to fire up a couple of times.

OK, this shot was when I first had it together. I bought it used but never saw water. The CG was way too far forward by about 3". I was also a newb gas boater at the time as if you look really close you'd see that I hooked up the fuel line accidentally to the primer return fitting. Boy, I sure felt stupid then!

MY sv27 nitro.... has a few new things for it
upgrade prop
ofna filter/primer
rb innovation cold air filter... I thought this was a waste of money but it accualy gave it some more speed and it lowers the engine temp
and some yellow fuel line

You can have as many as you'd want. Even quad engines aren't that uncommon.

I've seen twins that run great but I've seen a triple that the guy couldn't get a tune on. With 4 you've got to be on the edge of going off the deep end. My insanity has its limits. I have enough frustration with just singles.
