Dumas Hot Shot 3.5 fuel problems

I just bought a Dumas Hot shot 3.5 of off ebay, and I think that the gas tank is in the wrong spot. It is in the middle section, and when I go full speed, it wants to quit almost every time. If anybody could help me, by telling where it should be, that would be a lot of help.

Hot Shot

I just got one from a garage sale, as you may have seen from my post. The fuel tank in it was at the rear of the boat. Hope this helps.

as far as i know the tank would have been placed in the center because of balance reasons and maybe the problem is in the engine ( i dont have a glow powered boat) but if they have hi low screws it is usually a quick adjustment to set them back to factory recomendations and then u can work from there.

Try richening the carb, that could be the problem.
I don't know how new you are to boating, nitro or R/C in general. If you can, post a shot.
