    Futaba LiFe pack?

    Just FYI on the LIFE batteries, there really is a night and day difference in the way they hold a charge vs. the nicad and nimh packs, especially from when I raced in the 90s through 2000. I’m running an 1800 mah pack and I can run all day with no issues and come back and it seems like I could...

    Servo Torque

    Steve I‘m running the Savox 1210 in my Backlash At 6.6 volts. 277 oz in. at that voltage. No issues whatsoever turning the boat on a dime. I would feel comfortable with 100 oz in less to be honest but glad I’ve got the extra torque. 400 will more than get the job done.

    Throttle Setup Zenoah G260 WT-257 carb

    When looking into the carb, how far open would the throttle servo need to hold the butterfly open for idling? I’m assuming it needs to be open so correct me if I’m wrong. I’m only used to nitro where you would see a little elliptical opening for idling.

    Blazer Marine Slingshot Build!

    So what did you find out from last time? Definitely cooler dryer weather today but there was also some debate regarding your sponson AOA after making that repair. Seems like you’re back in there as far as speed.
