New Enforcer Silex
« on: March 17, 2009, 06:22:16 PM »

Looks absolutely superb, but does it remind anyone of another boat? Look very much like Mr Marles' Sigma...

That said however, I'd much rather have the Enforcer offering...

Going to be RTR for $1375, With a proper Zen, wonder if they'll just do the hull alone? Would go very well with a pip A90 in it... just a thought %)

This is where you are incorrect Bill ;)

The hull is $329, and a A90 from Greg is £90

Yes Andy. But it is still only a Multi hull. Try to finish of one of your MANY other boats.

I am sorry to show my ignorance here, but why do they call it a Multi hull, when it only has one?? %)

Its from the very early days of model boat racing, Barry.
The NAVIGA races in those days were either round a triangle (round and back to the start) or a speed/steering course aptly named the "Christmas Tree". Due to the fact that the radios were a common single frequency, the boats competed against the clock, one at a time.
Then they brought out radios which could be operated on different frequencies simultaneously, so a "multi"ple of boats could race together.

So you can have either a MULTI hull (single flattish hull for multi racing) or a MULTIHULL (ie catamaran). Confused yet  %%

Andy
The Z's are now reaching the same speeds as a fairly quick AA boat (assuming you're using a Novarossi engine  :o )

Already had this discussion on another forum, yes the hull looks like a Seaducer/Lyn x/Delta Force/Arrowshark, especially when you can see the ride pad on the keel. If it really worked like the Seaducer/Lyn x then half of the stuff on the back is surplus to requirements, just dead weight and extra drag.
