The conley seems quite expensive, is it mostly for show? Are the motor's that most people run a little cheaper??

How does the conley hold up in a R/C Boat?

Well I can see this is going to get expensive. I am already going to buy the tuned pipe. What's the story on the 6 drive. Mine has a surface drive on it now. My project boat is going to be the mod. I am porting the cylinder right now. I Made cylinder shims to raise the exhaust port, a case stuffer, and made and a cylinder stuffer for the cumbustion chamber to raise the compression. Everyone knows you need compression to make a 2-stroke go! I bought race fuel on sunday and mixed it with some bean oil I had laying around, I have been running that rascal in the garage day and night tunning on it. My garage has that perfume smell of the old go cart racing days now, I love it. Midnight

The unit I just bought is 46" 's , has a 30cc air cooled with surface drive and controller. I bought it as a demo from a distrubter in my nieborhood for $650. He said he knocked of $100, plus the fifty shipping. He included some spare stuff also. To zing it needs a $125 pipe, a big bore carb, and liquid cooled cylinder, a total of about $300.

No idea how they hold up, but the cheapest way to run is pull apart an old weed wacker, you got engine, gas tank, carb exhaust..... air cooled cyl will work, not as good as water cooled (wat till a 30 min hard run, power just dies.)

I've got one in my closet that's been sitting there for years. It's all f'glass 36" to 40" or something like that with a weedwacker engine, radios, and a really cool outdrive that looks like an old Merc SSM drive. It needs a driveshaft to go from the engine to the drive.

I got it ina trade for a bunch of other stuff. It was for sale back then (6 or 7 years) for $700.00. If anybody's interested I'd make them a deal. Drop me an email or respond here and I'll get some pics of it.
