Cool

Personally I would put a good .21 nitro engine it. You could have that hull skipping along up around 72 kph or more prety easy with one of the Go Engine 7 port .21 engines. It should be a fairly easy boat to drive like that if you get it set up and balanced right. You could put a dynamite .32 in it but a Go .21 will be faster, and I think a .45 would put it a bit on The Wild Side and take some of the Fun out of driving it.
