Re: Real Time Thrust Tests with Complete Boats

I would really like to see the 0540 boat try the Q blade out. Sence there's been a lot of talk on here about the Q pushing better than the NGH and the NGH pushing better than the Q. Really like to see which one makes more thrust. I've run both and have a 3 blade NGH on a 0540

Re: *AIRBOAT STOLEN*

The motor is a 470-13a model...converted to 520 the mags come out the front towards rear seat, dry sump no oil pan. The boat also has a powershift prop and was on a galvanized Ramline trailer. Ted's my neighbor and the boat was there when Sara and I came in from the river at 3:30 this morning.

Re: "NGH" VS. "Q"

I've run both and agree with most everyone above. The Q pushed my boat on good hard dry ground at 1500 Rpms when I put the NGH on it moved on dry at 1800 TO 2000 rpm i ran them back to back on the same dry ground. Now keep in mind i also went from a 2blade Q to a 3 Blade NGH. One thing i will say is...

Re: alumitec boat 0540

Is this your first boat? Im sure you can do some tuning to the hull and get alot out of it but when you get some more stick time you'll learn how to approach different terrain and that makes a world of a difference!
