    Default S.J.F.E. M.B.C. Info. Pics & Videos

    We had a great time today despite of the wind. Josh had his newley installed ESC(thanks Deigo!!). I had my new Villain. Today I remembered you don't need a 1000$+ brushless boat to have a blast. The Villain was alot more fun then I expected. The hammer was quicker today of course with out the extra weight of the rx pack, servo and manuel speedo. It did suffer from so cavatation issues. No matter cause next week it will have a new PB surface drive & a big old 600 in it. Not to mention some 7 cell packs to push it along. We will get it chasing down the Villain yet.
    Enjoy the Video guys.

    Super cool ! The jolly sounds like the motor's unwinding just right & you're carving the turns nice ! Hello Racerman !! The Villian looks so cool & totally scale [ I'm a closet scale lover]. I know you'll put some SJFE Mojo on the Hammer & It'll come up as well. Congrats on a good day on the water.

    Thanks Robby :) the clip from last Sunday is a solo guitarist by the name of Eric Johnson the song is Cliffs of Dover. The music in the clip from the movie maker thread post in the main thread is by Joe Santriani Sufring with the Alien. I have alot of tunes like that. My favorit is the Duel from the movie cross roads. Steven Via vs Rye Cooter..awesome.

    Talking Villain Goes Down!!

    Today's run was the most fun yet. I think it's bescause we broke some stuff. The hammer is 50% faster then last week. Josh removed the drive last week leveled, filled the bracket, lowered the drive and stiffened up the hull. He did a great job. I had a set of the older gp cells in the Villain but I din't think it would have mattered. The little hammer was movin out nicley. With the addition of some spin fins it will be complete. On to the BJ26. I opened up with a set of IB3600 packs. 20 seconds into the run one vented and became a resister. The picture in the video shoes the speeds. Next set where the GP3300s, witch where a little better. I was getting some nice air on the first run. I raised the strut on the final run and went 4s-2p. Big diffrence with that setup. The boat had the correct attitude ans was 8mph faster. I had MrsSjfe kill the camera and the wrecked shortly after. I got about 3 shot glasses if water in it before we recover her.

    Turn the volume up after the music stops. Great stuff HAHAHAHAH

    Default Fun Run 12/30

    SJFE-MBC would like to welcome our newest honorary member BadTC31 aka Butch. I guess he would be the the nitro division of SJ-MBC lol. We did a little bit of everything today. Josh ran his first FE today with the SV & we had some good FE on Nitro action. The local news paper even took a bunch of pictures and was asking questions. We had some issues. Josh beached the Hammer @ wot witn no damage. The Bladrunner had a great blow off and stuff. The TC31 did spin a main crank bearing and blow up. I have never seen a nitro engine do that before. With my TC31 being delivered next week we will have some all nitro running also. Just a little somthing diffrent. Enjoy the Videos.

    Attention Nj Rc boaters. We are running Sunday @ the Manahawkin Lake Park Exit 63 on the GSP. We hope to be setup by noon. Joe & Josh will have the SV's and I'll have the Jolly. Josh may have his micro hydro ready I have yet to call him. Any one with any type of boat is welcome. Nitro will probably ok but no gas this time of year. To many W.E.Bs & cranky old folks to ruin our fun.
