I have recently bought a new nitro truck and have no use for the old buggy. Its nearly at the end of its life. so i thought i would build a nitro jet boat but cant seem to find a cheap jet drive... so i thought i could buy a NQD jet boat and put in the radio, servos and engine from my old car.

Heres link to the boat:

It may work with a lot of modifictions. I built a boat using an Acadamy Titan hull & .25 out of a Savage. The hull started to break up after a while due to the stress of the engine in the plastic hull. Also you will be adding a far bit of weight to the boat so make sure you make it more boyant.

Good luck with your project & make sure you post pics.

Ok cool,
wouldn't a brushless system be worse for the boat? they have an extremely fast accelaration which would put more stress on the hull. wouldn't it?
Ill stick some foam in it in case it flips and doesn't fill up with water and almost sink like my old boat which ill use as a retriever if it stops.
