Motor size


The eleventh guest and Blutoh,yeh I got bit by the speed bug.This boat is going to rip like the crackerbox boat.Going to drop a monster brushless in her when done.I know some say I dont need that big a motor and torque but it sure is nice just to have.Maybe I might put a little smaller brushless in it when it comes to it.Hey let me ask you guys how a shiny black hull with a gold brushed waterline that matches the CHICKIE graphics might look along with matching black seats.Just toying with the idea.Oh yeh ,Luke is my attack dog.

Black would look nice with the gold, would you do a different colour bottom, red and black with a gold stripe and lettering maybe?

Black and gold is a nice combo, and always has a classy look.
