I've seen them run at the club pond.  Two thumbs up!

I'm building one right now.  Did loads of reseach between many gas riggers and ended up picking the Slingshot.  I have built a Backlash and also have a Whiplash both of whaich are fantanstic running boats.  Blazers are great to work with and I would highly recommend any of the Blazer kits.

I have built 4 of them and they are awesome boats. Easy to build and run excellent with both small and big block Zenoah motors. I don't think it would run the same unless changes are made to account for the CMB motors heavier weight.
My current Slingshot.

 I saw many Slingshots run at the 2017 NAMBA Nationals in Las Vegas.  They were very fast, handled the rough water like a dream and made a BIG impression on me.  I just purchased one that was built by Bob Blazer and can't wait to get it in the water soon!  

 

Go for it  :D

Here is mine running this last weekend in the District 13 race at SOWEGA in Georgia. I jumped the start by about two boat lengths then proceeded to lay the hammer down and lap the field for a first place finish. Took first place overall for the weekend.
