    Twin drive traxxas m-41 project - finished

    After weeks of planning, $, fabricating, CNC cutting the final boat is ready for launch. I used 2 TFL P1 Drives from Offshore Electrics. The Transom is super clean looking with ALL the holes filled in and added only the 2 drive holes and one for the steering rod. The water pickups are in each sponson. No external hoses.
    I even painted the bottom of boat to match the to somewhat....not every line but only the bold ones.
    The best part is the 14 degree transom spacers that had to be designed to mount the drives correctly.

    Nice conversion, but since you have Double transom it will have more drag, 3 props is an additional cavitation as well, probably you’ll get the same speed but more on current driving the boat so less running on it. Show us how it runs on the water. Your conversion cost more than upgrade for a 1800kv motor and 180a esc which will have more speed. But I’m pretty sure it will be stable on rough water.

    Only 2 props. Less drag. No long rudder. I've done this before. Not about money. Yes way more $ than stock. I do things that are cool and difficult. Handling will be amazing. Not about top speed...anyone can buy speed. Not why I do these types of projects. Thanks anyway.
