I've been building a 3ft long fire tender for about 20 years! It's on the shelf now waiting for my kids to grow a little so we can do it as a project together

I have a Traxxas Spartan and a Proboat Blackjack. The Spartan handles so much better. I tried putting my GoPro on it twice this summer and both times it failed to record and froze up.

You even drive your boat in the wrong direction down under.

I ran a 40in Prather deep V in Nitro roughly 30 yrs ago. Still have that sucker - have considered converting to electric a few times. It's been a while since i priced out the conversion.... anyone have a rough estimate on cost to do that?

That's because the toilets spin the other way. But the real answer is so that you can turn again the drive of the propeller. even the rudder is offset to the starboard side of the transom if your looking at the transom.

The price to convert it? Why would you? Do you know what those things are worth in original condition? Just build a new one. its not that expensive.

I had a Miss budweiser boat a few years ago, but didn't use it as much as I would like.

I've raced RC cars though going 15+ years and still do it through the winter. We race mostly Xray cars here in my area. i race both 1/10 touring car and VTA.
