    Have you seen the real DCB M41 in action?

    I bought this boat and have had it for 3 weeks now, but I just finally on youtube watched video of the real full size version of our boat and OMG they are ferocious. They are just amazing to watch fly through to water at 160 mph.

    I got out to that lake in Canada all the time, they are so fast and very loud.
    They are defentially a work of art.

    My brother used to pump gas and he said it was $1500 - $2000 to fill the tank which gave them 3-4 hours of run time.

    Still would want one if I had enough money...

    And the merc 1050's are only good for 80-90 hrs if your lucky.

    If you can truly afford the boat you're not worried about the cost of a fill up ... or an engine rebuild.
    Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.

    Just once, I want to ride in one. It's got to be crazy to ride in one.

    And people think RC is expensive. You can buy a new Traxxas M41 for about what it would cost to run a real one for about an hour.

    Ya I've seen a lot of them, they are works of art. They are built about 30min away from my house.

    That sounds a bit out there for that hull. I've got a similar sized boat, a 21ft eliminator that tops out at 65mph on gps.

    Magnum500sw , I agree.. I love speed use to race the GNCC Cross country circuit on my KTM 02 520 exc 100 mph dirt bike.
    My friends eliminator boat with his built blown engine run up to 105 mph in a short span . Now he has the larger 4 seater Nor-Tech with 2 1000 hp engines he runs poker runs all over the east coast with. Love to listen to the twin engines and watch them scoot across the water. Its the life of a millionaire..

    I never did try Gncc , but I always thought it was cool. No poker runs for me , just a weekend warrior.

    I remember as a kid waking up in our tent in the morning to the sound of a finely tuned V8. We're talking big time, 400-450 HP! That's enough for what amounts to large ponds but they call lakes back in western Kansas, lol.
