Young fullback Cameron Munster was superb as the Capras stunned the Ipswich Jets with an explosive opening burst.
The Capras scored the first 24 points of the match before the Jets hit back on the stroke of half-time through Tautalatasi Tasi.
It was a similar story at Mackays Virgin Australia Stadium, with the Cutters skipping away to a 26-0 half-time lead over the Sea Eagles.
The Sunshine Coast stemmed the flow of points in the second half and managed to get on the board themselves via a double to Kyle van Klaveren and a further four pointer to Justin Otto.
The win takes the Cutters to 25 competition points and keeps Kim Williams men on target for a top three finish.
The Capras arent sitting quite as pretty as the Cutters but the Central Queensland outfit is still a chance of playing finals footy after its impressive win over the Jets at Blackwater.
Jason Hetheringtons team is now just two wins off the fifth-placed Tweed Heads Seagulls.
