Default SO.... MANY.... CHOICES!!!

Hey guys, i have been looking around and was recommended a aquacraft SV27, but wile looking around for that i found another boat for about $50 more... I want FASSSSSSSST, and another plus is that its al ready 2.4ghz!

http://www.offshoreelectrics.com/products.php?cat=115 is the boat.

I would run it on zippy 2S lipo's and might change the prop. What do you think? look up the vids, it makes you want one so bad!!!

I have been looking at our lake and its been glass for the last 3 weeks... Im only a 5 min drive on my bike, or a 2 min drive on the scooter ... I used to have a traxxas blast, but when moving my dad gave it away or chucked it ...


But: http://www.offshoreelectrics.com/pro...igged-insanity because you get to put it together and paint it your self. I have a guy on another forum that is giving me set ups- he made one from the same kit that does around 60 mph for under $400... <<Really like this, want somethign along those lines!!!!!

I dont really want to go over $400 for everything, would like it $350 or below, but im pretty flexible.

The U-1 can made to be faster with a little work. It's made passes at the Legg Lake record trials averaging 64 MPH with some easy tweaks.
I don't know what your level of experience is but you might want to go with the U-1 first. The Rigged Insanity in the picture belongs to Taylor Shaw, a member in here. Look around in the fast electric forum or do a search there as you should be able to find a thread on it.
I'd have your dad toss in a few bucks too seeing how he tossed your Blast.
