8K mamba or C4 motor will be burn up very fast.

I'm using the 400DF motor that you get from Renegade. I cant imagine anything faster and still keeping the wet side down. Still working on the ideal strut angle to avoid hopping. I added .5oz weight to the stern and it helped alot with no noticable sacrifice in speed.

My renegade is the very boat filmed in the "[link=http://media.putfile.com/Renegade-rough-water-mods]"rough water mod"[/link] video
She was setup by Steve himself. In the video you can see (and hear) that she's dialed in.
I sent this image to Dirty, His renegade ran 100 times better after that.

I hope it helps you too!

Pull that extra weight out before setting your strut this way. This setup is based on the boat's weight stock.

Please keep us posted on the results!

Would a feigao 380 16s fit in one of those? Or do they only run outrunners in them? I have one in a mini-v but it's to much weight and power for the hull. This is the motor https://www.unitedhobbies.com/UNITED...idProduct=5254 . I was going to get a micro mogli but after seeing that vid I like that idea also.

I too have one of these. With the standard 400DF motor and a good 3 cell lipo they are ballistic. I cant just nail the throttle from a slow speed as the boat will flip. I suggest you guys use the tried and proven setup. I would think that with more power this boat would be a handful and prob not much fun to drive.
