My Sport hydro build is waiting for some warmer weather to finish the paint and put it together but I think I've decided on a scale hydro to build for the 2015 race season. There are a couple other guys building them as well so we should be able to run in their own class. I'll start ordering the parts when I get back from vacation in a couple weeks. This is the boat the 1982 Executone. I picked this boat after advice from Mike at ML Boatworks who makes amazing laser-cut hydro kits, it's an easy build (relatively) no exposed dummy motors or wings to get damaged and lots of room inside for batteries. The kit builds the #8255 hull which was used by a dozen or so teams over a few years. RC Boatworks has a fiberglass cowl to fit this hull as well. Planning on a 10s setup with a Neu 1527 and Castle 240HV esc. It seems to be the standard setup for 1/8 scales. Here's the kit 1/8th Scale Newton 138/ MHR 8255 [Newton 138/ MHR 8255-1/8th] - $135.00 : ML Boatworks, Laser cut rc boat kits I'll probably get most of the hardware from Accu-Tech, the graphics from Thunderboat Graphics, and the motor and esc from Offshore Electrics. Here's the cowl RCBoatCompany 1/8th scale rc boat cowling part# SG620C This will probably be the longest build in sparks history but stay tuned for updates.
