    Joe, Do you have any pictures of your boat hull ?
    Also hears a link for the stock stinger at TowerHobbies and it in stock,http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXBRMM&P=Z
    And why do you want the stock hardware for your boat ?
    Instead of something better and probably cheaper in the long run.

    Lenny I the stock rudder arm kit. So I thought I would have to by the stock outdrive because they mount in tandem. The speedmaster 3/16 stinger looked like I would not be able to mount the rudder arm above. So do you think I should buy the speedmaster stinger and then off set the stock ruddder?

    I am not sure about what you want to do,
    Do you want a inline rudder or offset rudder ?
    How much $ is the stinger you have on back order ?
    With the curved p1 transit, You would need to makes a spacer of some kind.
    Was your hull already drilled for the stock hardware when you got it ?

    2012-04-02_22-35-56_56.jpg]Lenny I think I would rather go off set rudder.it is pre drilled. The stock outdrive (stinger) is $34.

    Ok, Whats in side the hull ?
    Where did you order the stock stinger ?
    I would buy the one from tower, And cancel the one on back order.
    You will need a trim tabs & turn fins, yes ?
    And what about servo and motor mount and motor & coupler and a flex shaft, prop dog, prop ?

    The hull only has the stuffing tube. I have a wate cooled motor mount from ose. I bought a turnigy 500 1600k outrunner,a aquastar 90a esc. I bought a set of turn fins off of ebay, have not ordeed the trim tabs yet. I have a traxxas 2056 waterproof sevo. And instead of a flex cable I was going Jeff and order his piano wire shafts. I am going to start with a 640 prop.

    That stuff should all work nice,
    I am using a x440/3 prop, I had a x642 on it and got the same speeds as the x440/3.
    But more run time with the x440/3
    Will you be running 3s or 4s and 1p or 2p ?
    I would fill the stock trim tab holes and get something better then them.

    The stock ones I have that I modded are just about the same size, Give or take 1mm.
    How thick are they ? Mine are 9.5mm.
    I think they will work fine, But do they just have one mounting bolt ?

    Ok, In the pictures it looks like one.
    I will make a pattern of my offset bracket,
    I should have did that before I tested it.
    Will you be running 4s or 3s ?

    Lenny how far from the center of the outdrive did you put the rudder? I got the stock stinger today. Are you running the stock flex shaft? I am thinking of going with the piano wire set up from Jeff. What do you think?

    Hey Joe,
    Rudder is 1 1/2" offset.
    It is in post #31 in mods, And no.
    My flex is a 187.
    Piano should be good, You just need to find a way to seal it.
    At the stuffing tube inside the hull to stop water from coming in.

    A small piece of silicone fuel line will work to seal it.

    Thanks for the info,
    I was not sure about the piano wire and doing that to seal it.
    I have never used one yet.
