Tower says early december but I'm going to guess that it will be pushed in to late January.

2.4Ghz Radio, that is a first for a FE RTR.

With that motor system I would not be surprised to see 40mph out of the box.

Nice job Grim. This boat looks sweet. I will be picking one up for sure. I talked to a couple buddies of mine that drive UL's and showed them your boat today and they are super excited. I knew they would be as they have been wanting a UL hull forever. Again nice work on the boat. Hope to see it soon.
Oh on another note hi everyone this is KC of A-ZRacing. I believe some of you have met Johnny over at the seattle races. I hope to get to meet you all soon.

Wow, I wouldn't be surprised if it's more than about $320 cuz of the 2.4 ghz and higher esc amperage and motor kv.

This thing is totally gonna beat the proboat elam brushless[>:].

Its actually scale to an Unlimited light which im sure was the idea. Thats why it was made a little smaller then the Miss Vegas.

Ryan, how about 44-49 MPH out of the box? Yup.
I think that Aquacraft will bust their butt to get them out so that there will be some under the Christmas trees this year.

Well, I'll get a chance to see (and maybe even drive) one of the first ones to hit the water tomorrow at the LA FE SAWS at Legg Lake. Brian Buaas has one of the prototypes and plans to put it through the lights to see what it can do!! Should be some fun!!

Hmmm, guess I'm the only one who does not really like the look of this boat, oh well. Mid 40's out the box is bound to make this a winner though.

I like the look.

Does anybody know what material the hull is made of? It seems to me that some parts are plastic and some fibreglass..... Anybody can comment on that?

Hi MH,
Hope you are doing well!

This is FE, not nitro. ABS is ok when not used with nitro. Hull is the important part. It is fiberglass and tub design. Adds ridgitity where it belongs.
ABS cowl and nose canopy are very durable on this. Grim probably has a 100 runs on his without problem.

Thanks,
Rw
