Im so upset. My crazy modded Mini Rio subbed last Saturday, a big bubble came up, then one of the round hatches and it did not. Ive searched the lake everyday since (now 9 days) and have come up w/ nothing. Even dove it and cant see your hand in front of your face past 4 feet down. Sucks. She was brushless, she was too fast and she will be missed..... oh and she carried a "first run", 2S 1800mah lipo.... :doh: Ha perfect :Sinking:

Moral of the story, stock flotation is not enough for a stengthened and modded hull.

And now its been almost 3 months.... I found the hatch a couple weeks ago. Still no boat.

Good safety tip just picked one up for my son, thanks.

Another tip - you need a minimum of 29 cubic inches of floatation for every pound of boat weight.

So that's why my boats sink. :lol:
