1/10th Scale Electric Hydroplane Racing



1993 - 2018


Welcome to Classic Thunder 

The first 1/10th Scale Electric Unlimited Hydroplane club in the world!


As pioneers of a growing 1:10 Scale electric hydro class, our goal is to continue to duplicate real unlimited hydroplane racing as closely as we can. Since our inception in 1993, we have not only tried to recreate the boats of several eras, but to encourage a spirit of fun, respectful competition and comradery within our membership.   If you'd like to find out more about Classic Thunder, what we do, how to get involved or if you simply have questions, feel free to contact us.


P.S.  Let's go Racin!
