the Rapid Runner

Unlike most BTR vehicles, the Rapid Runner doesn't actually have two separate configurations. It technically has a 'Sea Skimmer' and 'Hover-Glider' mode, but switching from one to the other doesn't involve reassembling the rather small vehicle on the fly.

The Rapid Runner is essentially a small flying board, which can be used to either hover or to fly perpendicular to the surface, depending on its operator's needs (and hence the two 'modes' described above). The Rapid Runner has an m.s. of 8, and these vehicular details:

Communications Gear (i): the Rapid Runner has a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system (and dual transceiver antennas). It has intensity 5 communications power (with a 25 mile range) that features intensity 10 signal encryption.

Flight / Levitation (a): the Rapid Runner, unlike most BTR vehicles, only changes modes - not its actual, physical configuration. It can fly in its Sea Skimmer mode at intensity 3 speeds (90 MPH), or float in its Hover-Glider mode at any lesser speed, including intensity 0.

Missile Launcher (i): the Rapid Runner's sole armament in either mode is its oversized (compared to the rest of the vehicle) missile launcher. It fires projectiles that inflict intensity 11 damage each, though it only has two total per load.
