    We are maybe looking into making a new pto for the 91 that will take a 1/4 cable and then run the G-drive

    Funny how that is only being "said out loud" now Shane and Jamey....

    I hope others are not stuck with these beasts and not able to unleash them.

    Did you try any of my flex shafts?? I Dont think they are anything special but I am curious...

    I`m still waiting for cables, Kris...

    I have a couple of VP outboards as well, maybe it is worth looking into them... Only concern is the weight

    However it is not any problem to design and have a new lower made, it is just all about cost.

    A few more parts are made, the throttle servo mount for .46 that I mentioned earlier and also for the 67 / 91 with needlemount.
    Servomount for steeringservo, it takes the Savox SW-0241MG.
    Parts are all made by Andreas.

    Furthermore Andreas has progress on the new AN-980 tunnel as well.

    I`ve thought alot about the lowers, and I think I will need to look into designing something new. It could be usefull for the .46 as well since our tunnelhight is a little high even for the K&B 45 lower...

    Shane,

    Jim Johnson, David Ashmore, Jimmie Shaver, and I were all running Hyperperformance flex shafts and NONE of us are breaking shafts. These are mm shafts that are slightly larger than others 3/16 shafts and utilize heavier duty wire that is also slightly larger than anything else available. These are the key now and are what I am recommending to all of my customers. Many are experimenting with even larger mm cables and are communication with Fred to design a lower between the 7.5 and G lower untit for these 91s so we can turn even larger props. A lot of progress is being made very quickly. Stay tuned for even mor news.

    Regarding a new lower for the 67-91, how much would you guys say is a maximum price? Theres a big gap in price (and quality) between the existing lowers.

    Imo a new lower should have the same interface as the K&B to allow use of existing transom brackets.

    New steeringwings are made for the K&B 7,5 lower.
    And the AN-980 prototype are ready from Andreas. Now I need to make a plug and mould some cowlings.
    I hate that work more than anything else for sure!!

    I doubt it, none of us have boats that can compete with you guys on your tracks.

    Would have needed a week prior to the race to dial in all boats and engines. It is a huge difference in engine setup when 25% nitro is a maximum, specially on the 21.

    67 and 91 is no problem on 25%

    Have you had any problems with that engine mounted servo? Seems the vibration would be hard on it.

    Yes, but not caused by vibrations. The small Savox is actually leaking. I started to fill the bottom case with white grease and did the same on the top, have been good so far.

    The std size servo have been working without any problems. However this is very cheap servos, so if they say goodbye after a while it is ok with me. I allways have new servos in spare.

    Yes, I have done some testing thru the years, and I normally get higher speed with bigger diameter. High pitch props seems to have higher slip
