  1. Has anyone done a test to compare a JAE 21 with GT front sponsons to the same boat with G2 fronts? I could be wrong, but it seems like the older G2s launched better.

    Tape Adhesive Sticks to Klass Kote

    I am using the 3M stuff in the pic. I got it from either Zipp or possibly from Don Ferrette at the internats.
  4. I had been using PPG Concept single stage car paint for many years but decided to try Klass Kote Epoxy instead. I like the Klass Kote, but now find that every time I pull the radio box tape off, the tape's adhesive sticks to the paint. This never happened with the car paint. Getting the adhesive goo off is a real pain. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a way to prevent this? (I have learned that WD-40 takes the adhesive off better than Goo-gone, but it is still a nuisance and a lot of trouble).

    Hendrik, The cost to ship to The Netherlands is $65. I was planning only $15 inside the US, so if you will pay the extra $50 I will ship to the Netherlands. Price for that is $75 + $50 = $125.

    I forgot to mention, this is a 21 nitro kit. Like the purple one on Mike's web site.

    Worn out P/S?

    I found my problem. It is an air leak near the carb. Fixed it and everything works well now. Good info from Jim Allen on piston fit, etc. I seem to recall that years ago the first ABC engines used a cast, very high silicone aluminum alloy because it's thermal coefficient of expansion was a better match to the brass sleeve. With a better match the engine did not require as tight a cold fit because fit was maintained across all temperatures. I could be wrong about that, but that is what I seem to recall. Does anyone out there know if this is right? Jim perhaps?...

    Worn out P/S?

    Good call Tom. I always point them up and I put a filter on the pressure line, but I never thought to check the fitting and the filter!

    Worn out P/S?

    That's helpful. I was sure it was an air leak in a fuel line, tank or something like that. Changed all the fuel and pressure lines, pressure tested the needle valve, fuel tank, made sure the filter was clean and not leaking and I even changed carbs. I checked everything and came down to either bearings or the loose fit. I will try the bearings next as I have a spare set.
