yes.. Amp_Abuser its geared down... all motor for race need to modified (new bigger copper wire) so torque and rpm more than stock one. Gearbox just drop the rpm to torque. The speed can twice! with 2cell-Lipo also the boat will fly too :-)

many trick need to know before finish a race boat .. try first

success boat?
- minimal time go from sink level(start) to surface of the water
see this clip - SongTon boat - Start 02 (0 min 10 sec)
and - SongTon boat - Start 01 (0 min 9 sec)

- run smooth and straight
- easy to turn
- colorfull

same rigger speed but cost /2

Thai Long Tail Boats

Hi, These are photos of an 800mm long rc model I built from plans I drew from my memory, photos I have taken and the basic sizes for a 10m boat I found on an internet site.
