Default Zippkits Thunder boat

Been looking at the SLR Thunder boat kit from Zippkits. Anybody build one and what kind of performance can be expected? Looking to race stock class. I had a couple boats in the early 80's and a lot has changed since then. Was running a 36" Dumas deep V, and 32" SK Daddle.

I would try the forums on Jim’s RC boat dock and International Waters for info on Zipkits.
RC Boat Company might be a good option for you. Steve has fiberglass/carbon fiber type gas Thunder boat kits.

Great boat choice, you will love the ease of building, through instructions, its takes a little time and elbow greese, but the end results will be very satisfactory. Use a stock zenoha pum 26 engine with a 257 carb. You can achieve 60 mph once all set up. I have built a few zipp kit boats and great quality, you will be happy
