What are the rubber looking tubes that stick up off of the cavitation plate above the props? looks like black pvc or something, I have seen it mostly on the APBA boys in supercat like Drambuie and DonQ

Cool

They are vent tubes. They allow air to enter the water around the
propellers so they spin up faster and get a better start when the COLOR=seagreen]GREEN[/COLOR] flag goes up!
