    hey.
    I am basically a complete newb with rc boating. My freind has got a Miss Budweiser, which is very cool and surprisingly fast for RTR. So he basically got me hooked on these things, with the rooster tails and speed they produce. So I saw the price of the Miss Bubweiser, and others and wasnt too happy with the price. So my question is, would the time put into building a custom made one, compare at all with just buying the Miss Budweiser, and maybe hopping it up?

    If I go down the custom route, whats the difficulty, and is it possible to make a dual engine boat? and yes, i want it to be nitro! thanks guys.

    First of all, if you are a Newbie, avoid a multi-engined Nitro boat like the plague! Get about 10 years experience before even attempting a twin, seriously Dude.
    Sorry, I'm not a fan of any ProBoat boat so I'll leave it at that.
    Wanna whoop on him? Nitro Hammer or CEN Aqua Jet, especially in rough water that he'd park his boat in.

    ok, it wont be as bad I geuss, because I have an offer for a new CEN Aqua Jet for 170 bux w/ out radio. So, the big deal with dual engine's is too much power for me??? LIke it'll prolly flip easy or something??
