It's just a stock RCMK S-254 in it. The Drag Cat's are made more for straightaway racing but I built it for the ovals. It does OK and was tempted to race that instead of the Blast Cat at the event.

It's a great boat for rough water running as I bought it mostly for that race as I knew what the water could have been like in Celina as big holes will open up in a couple of places once the heats get going. It is kind of a dog in calm water but shows its stuff when the going gets rough.
Andre' uploaded a shot of it also in a comin' at ya shot.

I've been slowly going over to 2.4 but still run some FM radios. There's never been a problem with FM except at races when I might have to change crystals but that's been a rarity, even rarer now with everyone switching over to 2.4. I'm just using the Futaba PL series as well, I'm kinda cheap and can't see the big bucks for the FASST.

Hey y'all, great site! I just joined, Im in the middle of moving so can't post pics of my boats cause Computer isn't set up yet to post the pics, but I'm down in Florida and been racing boats on and off my hole life. In fact I was three weeks old at my first winter nats lol my dad was really in to racing up untill early 90's and I have three of his old boats he built. I have a two sport 40 top gun haul, the one is a nitro that was built in 86, it has a ops .45 and still turns good lap times for a 25 year old boat, it is called "tickled pink". The other one isn't built yet but think I'm going to go e-power with it and that haul was put together in late 90's. Than I have a 1/8 scale mr. Pringals he put together around 91, it has a ops .67, but the motor is shot, but no worries I just pick up a Don Pinkert coyote daytona rigger with a very low run time ops .67 the guy i got it from said he ran ten tanks thru it, I'm going to put it in my 1/8 hydro and go bigger in the daytona. Pics will come soon. Sorry y'all about the book I just wrote but can't post pics yet and just wanted to tell a lol about my self. Thanks y'all

James

I had a Mirage many years ago way back when Tower Hobbies sold a lot of boats. It was the Bud Lite without the expensive decals that they had to pay Budweiser royalty money.
