I was wondering if an inboard K&B .45 nitro is enough engine for an 1/8th scale boat?
Do yo already have the ML kit?
If not, I would say the better fit would be one of Mike's sport-40 kits.
I think you will be way under powered with a 1/8th scale with a K&B 45 in it.
What would be choice for a nitro engine for it
Pretty hard to go wrong with a CMB 67 Hydro. Great power and durability. Lots of pipes available for it.
Keep in mind that most motors purchased new need to be disassembled, cleaned, deburred, the head clearance checked.
Definitely check the head clearance, I've got a CMB 67 that spent much of a season "detonating" rather than running because I didn't check it before running it
Im new at the nitro in boats so any info is appreciated, have them on some airplanes. I do have a zippkits super sport with a zenoah. I also have a zippkits bullitt. I was thinking electric or nitro for the 1/8 scale
For 1/8 scale you need a 67 Nova, CMB, or even an old Picco or OPS if you just want to run for fun.Mike's kits build fast and everything fits as it should! There are good 45 kits to build JAE, KEP's, Road Runner, etc for riggers.
What the website for Mikes kits
In the manufacture forum ML Boatworks
