I don't know how much room is on that transom but trim tabs can also help stop porpoising, though it will slow the boat down a little with the extra drag but as you said it's a little to quick as it is for that lake.

should be a 1/8" gap at the prop where the cable enters the tube. should be okay with that. move the batteries forward. trim tabs should just need a slight bend down. a little tweaking here n there and you'll get it skimming the water at top speed.

well the flex drives are the standard stock SV27 shafts and I haven't moved the motor of course. the brass tube is sticking out a little though? should I push this in so the brass tube is EVEN CLOSER to the motor? would this cause a snap in the shaft? the first snap on the maiden I believe the brass tube was pushed in flush with the aluminum instead of sticking out like on flex shaft break #2.

I will play with it. I really should drive this at a bigger lake anyway. that's why I bought this little Tenshock clone, it is awsome and perfect for this lake. Here it is stock, I have since then upgraded from a 30mm to a 32mm prop and it is really fast now. I love this little thing. I do wish I would have gotten the genuine tenshock because I ended up replacing the ESC to a sea king anyway but it is awsome now. here was the maided completely stock.

I would push the brass bushing all the way in, but you also want a gap between the drive dog and the stinger (or bushing if it's sticking out). If it's too tight there it can bind when the cable shrinks under load and snap the cable.

I would also check the alignment of the stuffing tube to the motor. When you pull the cable it should slide right back into the collet without having to fiddle around.

Well, cable break #4 occured on the 6th run of this boat!!!! this time it ended up in the lake with the prop and drive dog!, cable was lubed. this time i bought a new brass tube, cable, drive dog and prop! this is getting expensive! ok, does anyone have an easy step by step for replacing the stuffing tube and flex cable/dog/prop assembley?

i had trouble replacing the tube so i had my local shop do it for me. replacing the cable, drive dog, and prop are easy enough. attach prop, lube cable, slide it into the tube. leave 1/8" gap at the end of the tube (prop end). post pics when you're done.

4 cables in 6 runs means something is out of alignment or binding. Check your motor to tube alignment. Make sure your bushing is spining free.

you cooked it from the sound sof it. something bound up or the timing was off. i would go with a aquacraft 2030kv motor from the ul-1 pair it to a seaking 120 set the timing to 11.5 degrees, thats as close as you can get to the stock 10 degree timing of the motor. this wil make an SV VERY fast on lipos.....Have Fun!!

This is more power than you need, but it'll work:

For an SV27? Both are more power than you can use in that hull, the one in your link is even more power than the one I posted. If you want to use it in a bigger hull, the 3674 will be faster.
