    My buddy has a TT on a htb 290 that will scream. I'm not sure what did he did with the timing but I could barely keep up with him with my os/cobra.....I wasn't trying to derail y'all's conversion but it did seem dead in here..lol

    Yeah I figured that out recently...I'm going to invest in a small lathe so I can make something work. I have 3 OS outboards one being Aircooled. I'm just playing around with the TT

    I've never competed a rc boat in competition at all but I've made my fair share of laps at the local ponds with a few friends and family. I have been to I believe 2 tunnel races in Charleston and I was all set up to run in the Tunnel Nats in Charleston in 2012 but chickened out before I registered. Me and a couple of friends are getting back into tunnels mainly because we all kept our boats but have recently realized how difficult it was to find a new 20 size hull. Ron Shaw has the lynx and taboo available and Mike Lusczc is backed up with the vision. That's about all that's available except for the PTI NX300/320 kit which would be time consuming to build but I might try it. Between the 3 of use we have an HTB 290, 3 cobras, 1 fiberglass sniper, 3 VS1/villains, 1 NX300, 1 leecraft, 3 topspeed 3s and a few more lesser known tunnels. So it's not like we have nothing to run..lol. Just maybe wanting something newer. I only have a cobra. a VS1 and a couple of topspeed 3s.

    I dont club race so rules don't matter ..I'm curious to whether the BX-R 21 is a direct bolt up for the thunder tiger?

    advise needed

    Hey Guys its been a while since I was on this forum so I hope I am still welcome. Even thou they are on the back burner I am still fascinated by these tunnel boats. Me and a couple of guys have 3 or 4 tunnels boats each and are always smack talking about out running each other. We haven't been to the pond a a couple of years but all the smack talking is getting us interested again. I have a cobra tunnel with a water cooled OS and my buddy has a gold head K&B on a lightweight VS1 and I think my Boat is plenty fast enough but his screams....anybody got any recommended or tips on out running him. I have some o'donnel blues and some technology hobbies 60%. I believe I was running a grim racer 40X52 3 blade prop. Its a short 350ft pond so its like a short track race..lol. I'm sure he will see this but it will only add to the smack talk..lol..he also has a sniper with a redhead cmb....I got to figure out how to out run him with an OS..I also have a VS1 OS combo.

    inboard 3.5 options

    Hey guys I haven't posted in a while but I started back building my JAE 21 rigger again and need some help. I don't intend on racing anytime soon so I am wondering what is my cheapest option for an inboard .21 . I waited around until the X-act/GO became unavailable so that's not an option. I can get a K&B power head but can I get a inboard backing plate for it? I can find about any kind of buggy motor on ebay but then I have to try to adapt a flywheel and collet to the half threaded shaft. I have thunder tiger outboard and have even thought about converting it to an inboard. Don't want to spend a bunch a money on an engine just to make some laps in a local pond with. Any suggestions?

    This is the most positive tunnel talk that I have seen on here in a while....keep it up and I will dust of my tunnels and throw the zippkits rigger on the back burner..lol
