12v....Yeah that is cheating... Fine you win because I'm not buying anymore batteries or retrimming.

Want to make it fair then and go against my 12v tug.. I think they have the same prop size.

Actually the motor depends on what it needs for voltage.
Mine is 8.4-12v and I was running on only 6v.
I am sure you have 7.2 or 8.4 now.
The 6v battery I had was to heavy and it is
in the bow.
I was able to get a smaller gell cell from
my cousin but it is 12v.
Now my trim is correct.
I will pull off on any tug that wants to
connect to my tow point.

Well you may want to check your seals before you go against the big one. I have been trying to find a good motor set up in it and the current one is..a bit scary.

Talk all you want about voltages..your cheating!

Ha!!
Cheating says the guy that installed
a huge motor and gear box plus a prop 3 times to big for the tug.
My Toot is stock! :roll:

I guess I could install a 7.4v pack if that would
give you a feeling of security.BD.

I thought you had said you had a 3/1 box. :? :?
You are running direct drive?
What size motor? BD.

6v pittman
I guess I could put a 12v pittman in there but I think I need to work on something else :)

That is right.
You did say something about a Pittman.
Good choice!!
The only difference between a 6 and 12 V Pittman is 6V.
In other words one is made to run on 6 and one on 12.
I don't think one has more power but I have been wrong before. :roll:
ONCE!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
The Pittman and the Venom-55 and a good match. I will set mine up for a 7.4V pack.
It will take even more weight out of the front which is a good thing.
Now for the 100.000 dollar question.
Who is bringing the tow rope!! :mrgreen: BD.

Already made some. They arent huge but we arent talking about that much force. In the event of a failure I will just run home and get a bigger rope.

As for pittmans. I would think that a 12v would have more power because of the high potential . Maybe not more speed but more torque? Just my theory..I guess I could sit down and do math to firgure it out but nuke school was a long time ago :roll:

Ok I couldnt help myself. I did some arrow analysis of it.

Perhaps a bit simplified since there are more variables like resistance from different windings and amp draws :(
