Welcome;

We can certainly help you with your answers.

I would like to refer you to the newly launched

Please join us there.

Also, please include a little more in formation about your boat. What year and hull number. The super models differ from the standard Ariston.

David;

Sorry I did not recognize you.

We just launched the Riva Forum a few weeks ago and I think the world wide audience of Riva folks would benefit from your post there as well.

I can certainly mirror the information on the Buzz as well for anyone interested.

the Supers used several different engine options throughout the years and the exhaust pipe size will be different than the standard models.

Hi Bill
I did that but it came up in a scrambled text form. I tried again but could not eeven get that far.
then I went to RCGroups where I had posted a build log but could not figure out how to create a link, I'll go back there and ask for info but its not like posting pictures.
Oh! FYI I looked under MFAQ and it states you cant leave pictures unless you use HTML and BBCode I tried with and without in all combinations no luck
