    With a 36 hull you can run 6S with 1500kv motor 4082 size

    Need to know your goals with this boat.
    Speed and handling requirements (SAW vs oval racing or sport)
    Are you on a tight budget or prepared to get quality components.
    "Look good doin' it"
    See the fleet

    With a 6s 40X82 outboard you have more power than the Prather is capable of handling other than a straight line. It wasn't a great nitro hull with less power. Not what you want to hear but make it a sport boat and have fun with it. Stay low on KV and props and enjoy the longer run times.
