    Miss Vegas

    On the advice of Don i took a deep breath.... First of all i was not bashing T.L., James or there products....Nor did i want to drag others into this..As far as others having problems i wasnt aware of that and havent heard that...I have edited my post i suggest the rest of you that qouted to do the same...This should be about making the miss vegas fast not this crap... Now just to defend myself.....Yes i had shipping problems with T.L. both dealings...The first one wasnt there fault at all but still frustrating...Then i placed a order with them again for a Vegas,a turn fin,and a 435 prop...It took 2 weeks to arrrive...Frustrated again then i found no controller and wrong prop...No biggie but frustration growing..(simpleover see on there part could have happend to anybody)....Now out running the boat and having to dump out lots of water every run due to the stream and having trouble setting the turn fin correctly...Which we never could get right...So frustation grows some more...I post here not meaning to bash just wanted some ideas and insight...Then day 2 of running it never did get turn fin figured out and on top of that the boat ended up with a crack....Still got the stream runnin into the boat on top of that....In all my frustration i posted more here that i really shouldnt have.... The way i see it if i would have gottten the right prop the first time would have saved alot of frustration and heres how.....The Modded T.L. strut is the water flow into the boat due to there elongated hole...We switched struts out and the spray went away...Now for the prop part...If i would have gotten the 435 that i ordered i would have had the strut set at 1/2" below pad and that hole wouldnt have been there. But due to having to run the 535 prop you must run the strut deeper allowing the hole to catch water...Im sure the wrong prop being sent is a over sight on there part...I just wanted everyone to see where my frustration came from..... James i hope you reading this you'll understand where my mind was at.... Now as far as the crack James yes you see a tiny chip out of that front sponson but let me tell you first its tiny and second it came out of the box with that chip.....I will get you several views of that sponson and you will see the boat doesnt have a scratch in it....It just seems to be a stress crack....No i dont want to send the boat back.....Its a 2" long stress crack that can be epoxied without insident. All im asking for is the prop i ordered, Some info on getting this turn fin to work..... James your more then welcome to give me a call....Im alittle calmer now..

    Spectrum radio's and receivers

    A buddy of mine runs the Futabe 3PK with the spectrum system....All he had was problems today...He runs a gas hydro thats well into the 80's and lost signal and failsafe didnt kick in...Needless to say it stuck itself into the mud bank a good 8".... .....Then it did it again but the fail safe kicked in...Not sure what the prob was needless to say should be a interesting race in Miami next weekend...

    Miss Vegas

    Got another Vegas finally delivered to me yesterday....I got it from T.L. and also purchased there turn fin..Im not sure if its adjusted properly or its just the nature of there fin, but it seems in the straightaways if you put any type of left in put into it it pulls the boat down...The other Vegas we have has the Grim racer fin on it and it doesnt do that and reacts well on left turns...T.L. turn fin the boat wont make a left turn unless you turn far and then the boat jumps out of the water...Grim's fin doesnt do that when making evasive maneuvers...[X(][X(] Anybody run the T.L. fin and can look and tell me if its adjusted right???...The orange and white boat runs the T.L fin and the blue and white runs the Grim's fin.... Also the orange and white one (new) has a annoying spray from the back and its hitting the top of the turbine, i sure its taking in water...The blue and white one doesnt have that spray and run the same hardware just different props???? Double decker boat stand for traveling that seperates when you have arrived....[]

    Best .18

    If money wasnt a issue what would be the best .18 to put in the Vegas???.....Thought about converting to a .21 but scrapped that since it wont be legal to race in NAMBA sport 20 hydro...Besides i know where theres one running around in the mid 40's with the .18...And yes its been GPS'ed...If he can do it i can too....

    Bantam 12 info

    Theres alot of riggers where i run and there pretty fascinating from a newbee point of view......Some of them are crazy fast .. ....Anyway this is something i would like to try on a entry level basis.....Looking at the Bantam 12.....Looking at the instructions theres some things i dont understand(ie sanding sponsons to a 3* angle and how this can effect performance). I have never built a boat before but this one seems straight forward except for a few things i dont understand the wording.... So is this a good starter rigger boat?? How hard is build??? And it states speeds depending on set-up from 40-60mph...Is this with a .12 or are we talking different size engines....Thats a big difference in speeds Thanks

    Bantam 12 info

    Yes we run boats......2 Modded Vegas's, 1 modded hammed, and 1 mono Dumas...Yeah there not real fast but thats what we started with.....I find the rigger's interesting....Like i said im just not on some of the lingo on the build-up since im not familiar with riggers.....The part on sanding the sponsons when building them???....Apparently this drastically effects the way the boat runs i wouldnt want to do it wrong... Looking at the pics it appears it has a car motor in it since its air cooled...Wouldnt a watercooled motor be a better choice or is that the preferred way??? Thanks Jason Send Vid to outlwgambler@yahoo.com
  23. What are the chances you guys will offer a RTR nitro class in the future???...I know theres growing interest on this coast but no clubs to race with......Theres 2 modded Vegas's in my family and theres more at the pond we run at.....Im currently looking at getting into riggers but my son wants to race... Maybe i can discuss this with some one while we are over there for the race??? Jason

    Engine temp

    Being a newbee i cant exactly tell if the motors runnin lean by sound yet. So what have been doing is measuring temp with a infrared temp gun...I have been measuring the temp at the cooling fins...Average temp i have been running is 140ish does this sound right????

    sport 20

    What about a modified Miss Vegas Hull (with a 21 engine)? What IMPBA and NAMBA class would it run in? Will in run in sport 20 or does it have to run against the outriggers? Look at the NAMBA rule book the Vegas is not legal in sport 20 hydro....It would take moving strut to bottom of the boat
