No mate stock zenoah 260 gpum,will be doing some mods at a later date no doubt but right now still trying to get more from this one.Only run 6 tanks through it and tried 2 diff props so plenty more to come i think.I have a good video of it running with my mates cat on another site but i cant upload it here as i dont have the video on my hardrive ,so ill need to have him send me it again.if you want to check it out its here.you might have to join if your not allready a member and if your not yet you should be its a great site for gas boaters.

well ive been playing arround with some ideas for a new hatch and this is what ive come up with so far.the drivers were made using brown paper and white glue over plastecine  {-).they came out good ,theyre strong too even though they are now hollow.once painted up they should look the part and should be water proof as i used water proof glue and they will be painted also.I found some orange acrylic paint in an art shop that ill use for the hatch along with a few diff colours for the drivers etc.once painted ill seal it all in clear coat.
