If you want to buy the kit, Towerhobbies has them in stock. Here is a thread I stumbled onto a couple of days ago about the Circus Circus 1/8 scale. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_96..._1/key_/tm.htm. To prove that 1/8 electric hydros can be fast here is a video of one doing 80mph. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U32pi...eature=channel

I saw that tower was stocking them. I would like to pick one up before they are gone. I think it would be a fun build

your hydroplane has been used for .67 engines as it has an Octura solid enginemount. In my opinion you should restore it in the original pink and white colors or as in the Miller colors. If you want to go brushless it is a good choice. I have racing myself 1/8 scale hydroplanes with .67 engines and since nitro became expensive people converted them to brushless of gas. I am working myself on a 1/8 hydroplane with a 26cc RCMK engine.
Here is my hydroplane:
U5 Formulaboat 1/8 hydroplane - MHZ138 AQUAMANIA - Axial Exo Terra - Tamiya Avante - LC Racing EMB1 - Atomic AMZ 4WD Touring car
