    Hi Steve im not sure now regarding motors as they have water cooling cans on but Surfury runs from memory a 1075kva motor Turnigy 160 A speedo watercooled on 2x2s 5200 lipo`s in series ie 14.4volts with 52mm mocom Alum prop approx 3hp. I think the Tornado has approx 2045kva motor same speedo + lipo`s x 50mm nylon prop both do scale speed to as fast as 40/61 IC and look great on our choppy water with just prop and rudder in the water. Both motors will take 6s if you like ballistic? All gear from Hobby king. Try the IC first, post some pics please

    If the hull is in decent shape structurally i cant see any problem if you get the balance right it should go well. if you are concerned beef up the mounts or put a bulkhead in it or both. Mine now runs on brushless and moves along quite well. I`m sure Jerome Grainger put a Merco or Webra 61 in his Cigarette in the 70`s.
    I`ve run my Surfury on an Irvine 40 and was pleased with performance and handling, that now runs on a brushless and its quicker. Pics are of Surfury with Irvine 61 which was a bit heavy and my version of the Black Tornado

    Hello chaps,

    I've been looking for one of these boats.
    If anyone has one for sale, do let me know. it looks as if the made models of the 32' Cary "The Cigarette" which was the '69 Cowes winner as well as the 36' Cigarette Black Tornado. Both would peak my interest.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    None I'm afraid as I am in the UK. There should be some stuff on the internet about the full sized craft and from the pictures it would be a fairly straightforward project to restore her yourself and then you would not want to part with her.
