This boat has been on the back burner do to tons of other projects, mainly heli's and speed cars, but got her fixed up real good this weekend. Full trigger from full battery to dead and no heat issues!!! WooHoo!!!







Previous but in case you want to do the update to the cooling system, it also helps massively. Unfortunately it does not cool Bullet connectors and XT90s lmao!!! But itll keep your ESC and Motor nice and cool. Plus the stream shooting out of the top looks awesome.

 
The key thing about the sonicwake. And I have a few boats so I'm familiar with the process of running them. Normally you have to tape them shut and if they flip your screwed and need a fishing pole "my choice" or a recovery boat. To hell with that!! Makes running them unpleasant. Even just the tape and untape and retape when changing batteries sucks badly.

Sonicwake:
Finger screws and fully sealed - NO TAPE NEEDED ON THE LID, Battery changes are fast!!
Self-Righting - NO NEED FOR A RECOVERY BOAT, flip it and it turns itself back over immediately.

Now that it doesn't overheat it's the ultimate boat. LITERALLY!!!
 
Thanks for the walk-thru vids Nomis. Both good watching. Loved watching the pond runs. If I may ask, who do you source for stainless fasteners?

Attaching one of my favorite magazine covers. powerboat from Feb 1972. Cheers. 'AC'

Stainless fasteners are hit and miss, but I have bought a lot of decent hardware from sellers by the name of monsterbolts, and regan001 off ebay.

If you don't mind paying a bit extra, you cannot beat McMaster for hardware. It's just a little pricey. But you won't find better hardware for the price. That's about the only brand besides Fastenal that machine shops use.

I've had surprisingly good luck with fastner kits off amazon of all various brands.

Here are ones that I've bought with good luck.
