Great Boats, the Cheetah

One of my many (read to many hobbies) is fast electric RC Boats. The type you drive really fast in an oval course and sink too much money into, the type your wife/girlfriend just puts the box in your room and has long stopped asking why about. Recently I had a boat built for mostly sport running and eventually racing with my friends and hopefully others from the region.
The builder I used is a well know guy in the the fast electric community who really knows how to build a boat that is not only a killer performance wise, but also a boat that looks like a ferrari under the hatch. His name is Keith and he can be found at his website here
The boat he built me is a 34″ cat by Fighter Cat Racing called the Cheetah, and it carries a reputation as one of the better hulls availible for oval racing. I can certianly attest to it being a nimble and stable boat, she runs and turns like a banshee. What really sets mine apart though is the construction on the inside. Keith started with a full carbon inlay, as well as carbon motor mounts, and a carbon speed controller cover plate. The lay out and set up of the wiring and tubing is very clean, and honestly the inside of the boat is a work of art. Enough talk though, how about a few pictures?
