Should be fun! Will post the results in a separate thread later this week

If your talking about this Dano, I ran it on pro flow cans

Ah!!! Sorry... Cans. I keep thinking you were running pipes!

I was telling Dave how impressed you were running pipes at 13.5" and he said you wouldn't have even been on the pipes, LOL!! Sending a correction to Dave now, LOL!!

That's why I'm eager to see! It's such a floater at 42lbs, that I really wonder if I'll feel 3-4lbs less (less motor weight + less batteries). I'm sure power to weight will be similar in either config.
