Front fuel tank, or front radio box, which setup is better?
The supersport45 has been setup both ways, I like front fuel tank just because of simpler fuel setup, you do have some weight transfer when the fuel gets low.
I like the front radio box with a 14oz Sullivan slant tank stuffed outboard, STBD side of engine, centered, for & aft on the engine.
case 1oz hopper in front of engine right under the carb.
Phil asked me why I do it the way I do, instead of main tank on port side to counteract prop torque?
I like the weight on the turn fin side to keep the fin hooked up in the turns.
If the boat is set up right it won't fly!
Thanks. When I built mine I went with the front radio box and a 12 oz tank and a 2 oz hopper like you are set up Rick. The front runners in my area are Mike Z, Big Bryon, and Greg Bonahoom, and their boats are all setup front tank. I’m about to upgrade the electronics in the boat and was thinking I may change the fuel system also.
hay Larry good to see you hear again !
you going to play toy boats some more?
Rick your orange Supersport is a fast one for sure.
Jerry is going to pilot it this weekend in Brandon.
Another weekend with an all Bellinger sport-40 fleet
They better get those other boats running, Jerry may get my Supersport45 to race in Fla.
Not for long. I will have mine done for the November race for sure!
I have my new Stealth setup with the front tank, I have the front radio box for the Stealth too.
those full size pic look great I try the thumbnail option.
Looks good too prob use less space too.
Looking REALLY GOOD Phil
Just shoot the 1st coat of epoxy primer this AM on my Stealth 45 yours will be a litte lighter with no paint on the deck's
Is there any performance advantage between the 2 diff cowls or just visual
No big difference in the cowls, we have to use the turbine cowl for Namba races they dont allow the pipes to show.
