    Got this old leecraft I believe and was wondering if it would make a good fe tunnel? Can’t figure out how to load pictures of it at this time

    I built an XT-460 with 6S power a long time ago. Brian Buaas drove his at the Fremont Grand Prix and it was faster than the nitro mod tunnels. It's better suited to P power unless you are really good driver. It may be a little long for the NAMBA rules, but the bow can be trimmed. See https://www.intlwaters.com/threads/leecraft-geraghty-fe-tunnel-conversion.29599/ for Darren Jordan's thoughts.
    With batteries you won't need to add bow weights. Just run the radio box into the bow area. Below are some pictures of my boat.

    thanks for your input on my question bud. I was kinda thinking it was a little to long but wasn’t quite sure. Guess I will sell this one and find me one for what I’m wanting to build
