    I'm building one right now. Did loads of reseach between many gas riggers and ended up picking the Slingshot. I have built a Backlash and also have a Whiplash both of whaich are fantanstic running boats. Blazers are great to work with and I would highly recommend any of the Blazer kits.

    I have built 4 of them and they are awesome boats. Easy to build and run excellent with both small and big block Zenoah motors. I don't think it would run the same unless changes are made to account for the CMB motors heavier weight.

    My current Slingshot.

    I saw many Slingshots run at the 2017 NAMBA Nationals in Las Vegas. They were very fast, handled the rough water like a dream and made a BIG impression on me. I just purchased one that was built by Bob Blazer and can't wait to get it in the water soon!

    Here is mine running this last weekend in the District 13 race at SOWEGA in Georgia. I jumped the start by about two boat lengths then proceeded to lay the hammer down and lap the field for a first place finish. Took first place overall for the weekend.

    Thanks Bob! That was with the turn fin you sent me the week before. It turns much better now than it did with the turn fin I had been using before (from a different manufacture).

    Something else to note from the video I posted is how much quieter my boat is compared to all the others. Fast boats do not have to be loud. People need to start making a better effort to soften to tone of their boats.
