Default Gimp's 37" Fighter Cat Daytona

Hull is being built by the one and only Tiqueman!
FC Daytona Hull (FG)
Carbon Fiber reinforcement
T-180 ESC
Leopard 4074 2200kV
Running on 4s to start (will try 5s or 6s setups next year)

FC 3/16" Strut
FC 115mm Rudder (offset) mounted to transom
.187" Flex
Water cooled carbon fiber motor mount
Carbon fiber battery trays

Goal is to be consistent 50-60mph range.

Haven't decided on paint yet. Thinking either a Ford GT theme or Kevin Harvick Budweiser NASCAR theme...

Scott posted 2 pics of my hull before he starts.

The 4s setup will probably be pretty temporary, it's just what I have now. I would like to try a 1800kV setup on 5s so I can at least use half of my batteries lol.

The Ford GT theme is getting a lot of feedback, may have to go that direction. I guess there's already enough Bud boats lol.
I have 4 color choices in mind....

blue/white (maybe even silver)

Not a huge fan of red to be honest. I think I'm definetly going with the GT40 Heritage theme. I'm going to get some GT37 and #6 decals made as well

I may take you up on them. Are they printed on clear or white stickers? Waterproof? Have any pictures?

they are done by Bowtie here on the forum. the are printed on white and waterproof. i dont have any pics but they are this logo. you just cut on the outline and your golden. the white background completes the logo so paint doesnt show threw.

That's pretty sweet!

I'm definitely going with the GT40 Heritage Blue and Epic Orange theme (Gulf race car of the 60's). It's getting the Gulf, #6, and custom FORD GT37 stripes. I'm so excited for this boat lol

Gonna look amazing, I really like the look of the Fountain P1 boat in those colors.

You beat me to the GT37 idea, so I call dibs on FC370.

I've got a hundred different ideas knocking around in my head for mine. Just gotta decide on one.
One idea was to do the Motion Marine theme but as GT370 or GT37. Right now I'm experimenting with tape to nail down a look. I added some flat black and silver tape stripes to the ugly red and it's looking pretty good.

I just can't decide if I want a simple paint scheme like the GT430 or something more complicated like Aquamania.

That looks sweet! It should be bullet-proof! Too bad it will be hidden though. Can't wait to see it in action soon.
