I know a large majority of you have seen the videos on YouTube of the Thai longtail drag races.. And I can't be the only one that has wondered where to get a motor like that.. The mud motor kit is easy, you can order one from 20 different companies here in the U.S., but as an owner of a long tail mud motor, I want to know.. Where do I get a motor like that?
Yes, I've seen the videos and read the articles about how to add performance parts to the Honda or Honda clone engines we've got here in the U.S., but I want to know where I can get my hands on one like they are running in those videos. Anyone have any ideas?
It would be worth the money just to be able to run across the marsh on opening morning while all those public land hunters sit there in astonishment. roflmao

Are u talking about a Honda 50cc motor for like a dirt bike that has engine mods...If so planetminis.com is going to be your go to for a built built motor. I raced minis for years my 50 was upped to a 124 w a roller rocker race head and all kinds of engine work. Guys on there will usually sell a fully built motor on there for around 1k. If u had a longtail set up w something like that, you'd blow the pants off of everyone burning down the lake

I just watched on youtube those videos. I believe you could do the same using a Honda 50cc based motor. If I were to do it. Id try to get a built 124. You 'll be a rocket.

Thanks, I'll definitely check them out. I hope I can find something around 400cc because I'm currently running a stock 212cc, and I'm wanting to move to a bigger boat. So a performance built 400cc would be awesome

You should do it and get yourself a hand carved boat to mount it on. Race to the back of a lake full of stumps. Have a couple go pros with their own flotation separate from the boat.

The Honda motors are 4 stroke air cooled engines. A base non hopped up motor is 50cc. Then they have a 88kit, you can run a striker crank to bump that to a 106. But if u really want to do it. You stroke a 106 making it a 124. All are done using high end Japanese race parts. Buy a used motor off someone. New if you were to build one it could set u back 4k.

I've built a few of them. My favorite was the one from a weed eater motor. I will post later when I have a minute

I always liked the long tail boats in the James Bond movie Man With The Golden Gun



Looks pretty fast. There was a boat chase if I am not mistaken

Maybe too loud for an early morning hunt
