Re: ECOTEC 2.0 LTG SWAP

We have been using Rotator gear reductions with adapter plates lately because ballistic has fallen off the face of the earth. I would no sooner fly to the moon than use Alpha Fab (AFI) for anything. Worst company I have ever dealt with. I wish one of the gearbox mfg's would build a bolt on box for u...

Re: Ecotec 2.4 v/s 0360

I see that dragonfly airboat company is selling a set up with an Ecotec 2.4. Anyone have any experience with the dragonfly boats with the 2.4 setups? They have some videos online and the hull setup with the Ecotec engine seems like it does a good job I just don’t know anything about dragonfly boats...

Hull Size for 0540

I currently have a 13' X 7.5' aluminum deckover hull, and want to power it with a 0540. Do you guys think it is too much weight?

What would you say is the minimum hull dimensions for an 0540 that will be run in deep water?

Dragonfly has been testing one for 5 months now. Stock 2.4l ballistic 2.3 box with 3 blade NGQ

Unbelievable performance, fuel consumption, and VERY smooth.

300 hp turbo engine model being built right now.

Where to get 0360's

I am looking for a source for 0360's 180, or 200hp. Is there a place that I can buy them rebuilt, and ready to run? maybe 10 a year.

Re: FYI...Reduction Units

I am building a boat now with a honda 4 cyl, with a rotator gear box coupled with a custom adapter plate. Someone I know using this same combo recently grenaded his main bearing, and rod bearings after only about 10 hours on the new motor. I am suspecting some of the problems mentioned above. How ca...

Re: Honda 4 cylinder prop selection

My hull is super light. I dont really need to run dry. Most of my running will be in 1 foot to 2 inches of water with a fairly hard bottom.
