    Last year we had a thread going about Radio Control Boats and someone suggested a really cool RTR Gas Boat to me.

    I cannot find it in the search and I am hoping to get the info again. (Its time to buy some toys!)

    Please help... thanks.

    I had a couple of hand built ones, not what you are looking for but a boatload of fun! I had a 40" V hull with a 7.5 K&B and a Budweiser with 3.5 K&B outboard...both were very fast.

    I currently have a Miss Budweiser hydro RTR that I would sell if you are interested. Here is a link to the exact boat http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdID=PRB2200

    Mine has a brand new engine as the first one locked up on its first outing. I got a replacement engine under warranty and never took it back out. You would need fuel, glow starter and batteries for it. PM me if you are interested.

    If in doubt of my honesty please talk with JoeyD, he can vouch for me.

    I am actually looking for GAS boats guys, not Nitro boats. Way more fun, way faster and not as tempermental.

    Thanks but I think I will just have to wait for Billy to get back to me with the name of his RC boat.

    Regards.

    I agree with the temperment of Nitro, but not the speed...The average Nitro will smoke a gas burner any day of the week.

    I ordered a tricked out Team Pro... Red, M5 engine upgrade, installed radio, detailed dash, driver & throttle man, upgraded bearings, machined choke lever, Alum. Velocity Stack with diffuser, Decal Set.

    It should be a fun ride... a nice toy for my Son of course! :)
