Hi Kurt
When I first saw the cat launch clip I thought that Paul's cat had just stalled. Only watching it again did I realise that it might have stalled for a reason  :-X

Fun banter aside Kurt, that MDS40 powered cougar of yours is impressively quick!

thanks craig,iv got a new os max 46 iv just had water cooled and am thinking of putting that in but im happy with the little mds at the moment,it does seem to rev out ,just wish the fuel would last abit longer,now looking at maybe trying to get a longer tank in O0

Hi Kurt
If running out of fuel is the key reason why your cougar may have fallen short of going full race distance these last two races, then for me mate, the bigger fuel tank would be my preferred option. And I'd stick with the existing engine.
You'd probably have the fastest boat and I would expect be picking up first place.
Cheers
Craig :-)

hi craig.im abit stuck for space,i did try running a second tank but that proved to be abit problematic,iv also managed to get my hand on a old knb 40 engine which i will be converting to a os carb and trying out as well,im working on a GPL 1000  special,this ones different to the others in the fact it doesnt have much free board and is much slimmer and i will be running that on a nova rossi 21 race engine which if all goes well i might race with the bigger boys in a class even though it will only be running aa class engine,im now searching for a bigger fuel tank mate ,only one more weekend to go and we will be back at it again,looking forward to seeing you again, :-))
cheers kurt and sha
