Well now,,,,,,,,in all my years of playing with toy boats I have yet to see one single individual that set SAW or OVAL records that wasnt good or outstanding at heat racing! Cream comes to the top no matter what the field.
Thanks John

And we won't know till it happens. I hate to confuse everyone with facts.

 

Just my 2 cents.

Are we talking facts here or true facts? Hope his real job will one day let him come play with us, until then we can talk and spin it all in every direction and well all be right.
Good Luck in France to you and all the US contingent! Great ambassadors all and excellent representatives of US model boating!
Thanks John

what is the fastest class  gas or nitro  single or twin  or electric    want one extreme  Oval  rigger        Thanks  for any answers        adam


Loaded question, as to what direction to go in, I would lean towards what others are racing in your back yard, the fastest boat on the planet is a waste if you don’t have buddies to race against. Then, pick your poison and spend every waking moment and $$ trying to make it the fastest you can. Then race it for the imaginary glory that fuels your passion, whether that is a 21 or 91 hydro, pushing your boat out to its design limit is a hoot. I have them all and I enjoy them all on different days but I do find that I like the bigger bore engines more, love the howl and final speeds. I’m a Nitro guy and always will be, I secretly hope that the electric and gas guys will wake up one
day and say “what were we thinking?” :) That said gas is getting faster but Wow do guys pour the $$ into mods to get there. Electrics are wicked fast but their lipo power source freak me out, nothing funny about the fire risk they are, especially when you chase their max speed capability.

That all said, make the choice and chase it, just know it’s a disease and you will one day wake up surrounded with boats and a wife that shakes her head!

I'm with Steve,  Not saying heat racing can't be learned, but passing 3-4 boast while racing 1or 2 others with heat racing water is much different.  Now throw in a dead boat or two in lanes 2-4 exiting the left turn and/or entering the right turn. Each lap the water conditions have changed.  Do you have the best coach behind you giving difference making information?  Oh, don't forget to nail the start.   It just is not the same.

 

Now make it a two boat GRUDGE...I'm sure his fastest two lap oval could fair nicely.

 

Respectfully,

MG

After today he probably has the fastest offshore gas boat too! LOL. (Its a joke people)

At the end of the day he leads a different life than most of us. Not good, not bad.... just different. We all can only wish to have resources that he has. The cool thing is he is playing toy boats with us! (Wink wink)

I always like d & e hydro for heat racing.... record trials all can be fast, but it's not a plug and play game...lotsa trial and error... we all know Martin has invested lotsa time getting his boats where they are...like wise people like Stu and many others have spent lotsa time getting there heat race boats where they are...

Good luck in your quest for speed.
