    If you really want the Zonda, buy the full carbon version (the New Zonda from DYmotorshop) and reinforce it.

    It depends on how hard you push it.

    H&M are very popular across the pond. The one I mentioned in post #5 has a current speed record of 147.86 mph.

    I'd get one if I didnt just buy two other hulls.

    Most hulls are 2 layers ( carbon or glass). Every boat out there is is built in 2 pieces leaving the seem vulnerable to cracking. Any boat flipped at any significant speed that lands wrong will split or crack.

    I agree with that! I got the white/blue fiberglass/kevlar Zonda and had a blow over on the first run. I expected it to be cracked or split but I got VERY lucky and no damage. I have run it a few more times and no more blow overs or any damage that I can see forming.

    Paint is great! I had a Genesis first that I got from a U.S. Ebay seller and had no problems with the paint and using hatch tape. I got my blue/white Zonda from here OSE store, and I have had no problems with paint and using hatch tape. And I no longer use the thin hatch tape that most hobby stores sell, I use the wider "hockey tape" that I think has more tackiness than the thin hatch tape.

    The decals come right off on the blue and white one I had. Used the boat twice. Decals came off with the hatch tape and had a crack in the side of the hull. Crap.
