    But with P-Power (Got a few different motors to try out)

    And I promise to come up with something more original that a black and white checker theme this time

    Motors I currently have are:

    http://www.offshoreelectrics.com/pro...u-1521&cat=117 in a 1.5D winding.

    http://www.offshoreelectrics.com/pro...o-4074&cat=148 in the 200KV rating

    By the time I get through messing around with those, winter should be here.

    I want one but I just can't figure out how to get a Leopard 5698 on 10s 2p in it! LOL But seriously how do you think a Neu 1515 2200kv on 6s would work in it?

    Sounds ALMOST good enough to be a SAW setup... Need another 4S to really work, but you're getting there... :P

    Actually closer to 40,000 under load. I ran a Castle 1515/1Y in my 6S cat to 89 mph through the traps (not GPS) many times without letting out any smoke - but then it was two 5 seconds passes then back to the beach. Totally a SAW setup, but it works well as a P Sport Hydro motor on 4S.

    How much more can the 1515 1Y take on as far a cells? Would 8s kill it for SAW in a rigger?
    Thanks,

    Yes, even 7S is really too much. Six S is plenty, if you can't go fast enough with that you need more motor, not more cells. I topped out at 89 mph no mater what I did in my 32" SAW cat, I needed more (longer) motor (1521 or 1527) to go faster. I was only a few mph slower running 4S and a 1521 in the same boat at the same event.

    As I'll be using more powerful motors on this boat, I asked TFL to add some carbon tubes along each side of the motor mounts for a bit more strength..there is absolutely nothing wrong with the stock motor mount, but I prefer things to be reasonably bullet proof.


    Again, TFL was nice enough to agree to do this for me.

    That pic was taken last night, you should see what the yellow one looks like now....I dropped it , accidentally stepped on it, and the dog chewed on it for a few hours....it should still float though!

    @Doby,
    Here is my stupid question of the day: is the middle hull longer in the first picture or it is just the angle?

    Got my Leopard 2000Kv motor and Seaking 18 installed: Had to modify the motor mount holes a bit to make everything fit.

    OK! But I swear in the first picture the checkered one looks like a stretched "limo"...
