    I used to think of that old Whip like it was a Kenworth. Just plowing through what ever what was in front of it. Chop, wind, buoy, ducks, other boats. Come'n through!!!

    Too light a boat makes it difficult to handle any water issues. Even coming back and hitting your own wake can be an issue.

    I'm not going to argue. Some of my best race boats are tanks. They plow through the rough stuff and are always right side up at the end of the race!

    I think the key is to get that weight at the right spot. There's a big difference in turning ability between a heavy boat with weight all over, and a heavy boat with weight all at the CG.

    Agreed. Putting a bunch of weight in the back and counterbalancing it with weight up front just makes a see-saw. The boat will porpoise badly!

    Watch for a sale on Black Friday or around Christmas on the combo 1/8th Sidewinder and Castle 1515 1Y motor. ESC converts well to a good stock speedy control. Good for Limited class racing.
