    45 twin new build

    Used 2.4 props from Beardlee's prop service, .....went through the timing course at 80mph+ at Thread Lake with them back then. Ran 1662's in heat racing. Boat was real fun to drive.... John, there were a heck of a lot of twins for sure back then....remember the twin called the Black Russian? Sure do, it was Ron Walkers second geared twin (Bridge style) Beat it a few times with my 46 twins. I think it was all in the props, of course Ron was running good props as well. Fun times and great memories for sure. You and your Dad were a part of that fabric that has made D2 a pinnacle in model boating history. Thanks John john i belive there is a geared twin still hanging on a wall in Windsor .
