Darkhorse 26" shovel nose Hydro

REVISED with new Price:
Hull and hardware only, $180 shipped. This would make a great SAW boat.
Less:
Motor
ESC
Collet and thrust bearing.
Everything else included.
I need this hull to go.
Tom


I purchased this about a 1 1/2 years ago from member on OSE and have only run it twice. I wanted to race it with friends but don't have the time. It needs a paint job which I was getting ready to do. I removed the trim and decals. It has a small chip in the gelcoat above the driver head that I painted. That was there when I bought it. I was told it has never been wrecked or repaired and was told it has done 50.9 mph on a LHS set up. This boat should be racing instead of sitting on my shelf.
According to the previous owner:
Brian Buaas shovel, one of the nicest FG layups Ive ever seen. Boat was built origionally by Ray Fuller and is one of the latest batch's of the Darkhorse, and doesnt seem to be making anymore. carbon fiber plate under motormount and stuffingtube.

I installed and includes the following:
A new Aquacraft SV26 1500 KV brushless motor(2 runs)
OSE Water Jacket
Proboat 45Amp ESC
Thrust bearing with spacer
Traxxas 2075 waterproof servo
Flex cable and hardware.
Has an installed air damn.
Unfinished driver from OSE
I'll through in a Traxxas 27mhz rx if you want it.
4mm bullets on the motor/ESC
5.5MM Bullets on the ESC

I'm looking for $310 shipped. Only thing you need is a prop.
Let me know if you want more pictures and I'll be happy to post them.
I would entertain trades for a FE Catamaran or vee/mono. Something that can handle a little chop.

I will also sell with out the motor and ESC so make me an offer.
If anyone is interested in the Hull and hardware only, $210 shipped.
Less:
Motor
ESC
Collet and thrust bearing.
Everything else included.
I need this hull to go so make me and offer or trade if you're interested.
Tom
Thanks,

Tom

What is an air dam? Is it that thing in the bottom shot about 1/2 way down the sponsons? Why would you do something like that. This is a 3 point hydro and needs to run on the tail end of the sponsons and the prop. Doesn't that defeat the purpose or is it there to minimize blow overs. I'm interested, but confused. Does it run on one or two packs, and what size? Tom

Hi Tom,
Good questions. I have read that it helps keep it from blowing over in high speed runs. It was installed when I bought it and can easily be removed. I was told this hull can handle some really fast speeds.
This thread has some interesting reading.

Hope that helps.

Hi Tom,
I ran 2 - 2s Lipo packs(total of 4s). There is velcro in front of the motor for them. Plenty of room for any combination. You could run Lipos or NiCads. It would just depent on what motor set up you use. If you would like to talk you can call my cell at 585-208-4852

Tom, my car is in the shop right now and I have no idea what it is going to cost me to get it out. If I don't get scalped to bad, and the boat is still for sale, I'll call ya. I would want it with moitor and all, not stripped. Tom

Things aint looking good. Picjked up my car on Friday and never made it home. Brakes locked up and it overheated. Luckily, I had not paid the garage yet. It's back in there now via flat bed so I think I am out of the model boat buying loop for a while. Sorry. Tom S

Hi Tom,
Yes but I started to repaint it as I was getting sick of looking at the poor paint. You still interested?
Tom

I have an AQ Motley Crew thats essentially new minus radio if you are interested in doing a partial trade.

I would only be interested in hull/hardware. Could possibly trade my hull/hardware for your hull/hardware even up?

SAW is a Straight timed run. It's a competion that I think started in Europe but is now in the US. Kind of like a speed run
