The villian ex has a deep v design, wich is good in chop, i have one and it runs about or just under 300$ on towerhobbies.com, also take a look at the deep v's on proboat.com.... The villian has twin steerable outdrives and dual motors water cooled, and hold 2 battery pax, very nice stock but is very upgradable. if you upgrade the motors you may have to add trim tabs, i did. i have twin brushless motors in mine and its pretty badass and lots of fun.
