On my visit to Melbourne & Adelaide in March 2009 I saw some very fast boats. For a country that has so much dry land they do have some real big lakes that us petrol heads can get there boats up to 11. 
After talking to some of the members I was made to feel very welcome. Thanks chaps. :-))
Lets see some more video's from you chaps down under please.

Bill,

Did you look at the other videos from the same user (MrOZSPEC) ?
Aaron Alberico of Ozspec broke the .21 and .45 2 lap records again last weekend. The .21 video is there too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D92OSMBxE7M - And the latest .45 2 lap record run (now 15.9 seconds) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLbmpjdhPN0
The .45 records are with the new Picco .45 released last year. In the .21 classes he runs Novarossi. He's also the Aus / NZ dealer for Novarossi. There's also one there of a 139 MpH run with a .45 rigger http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6BNm0ROKFk. Didn't realise an I/C boat had run that fast yet - wonder if they got the conversion right (KPH - MPH). I think that's a lot faster than the world record for any I/C model boat until recently (I think it was in the upper 120s). Almost caught up with the Fast Electric record now if so - unless it's been raised again. I think it was 140 MpH.
Both of those 2 lap records were set with JAE riggers. The JAE / JAP family of riggers were designed by some very prominent figures in the US, and they have created a big stir. Almost all of the recent rigger builds on one of the US forums are from that family. They start off at .12 size, and go all the way up to .90 and possibly gas sized. Even the JAE / JAP 12s are extremely fast when properly set up. Here's a JAP 12 running http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tL2fhjMbV8I. The plans can be downloaded for free, and Zippkits do kits for some of the sizes. I think there's a long wait list now though.
I suspect that the JAE riggers will feature quite prominently in the FSR-H classes at the forthcoming World Champ's in Hungary.

Hi
yes we had Australian 2 lap trials last weekend where i broke my old records
17.59sec with 21 hydro and 15.90sec with my 45 hydro,
i used ozspec modified picco 45 and Novarossi ozspec modified 35plus, they are both my oval boats
in oval set up...
thank you
i went to the U.S.A in April this year to attend SAW trials, and i made pass 139mph with my 45 rigger  before i hurt the motor on the
back up pass, this is the fastest pass ever made by a nitro powered boat..

regards Aaron
