being the way Traxxas builds some of their stuff, this boat should rip!

When I get back from this deployment, i'm buying one. Good thing Louisiana can sustain FE year round!

Very nice!!! I love RC but I have no time to build. If it's 400 or under with a 2.4Ghz radio and 7 cell packs, I'm sold.

Aquacraft is coming out with a cat that will handle 4S. Both are going to be very nice.

Check out my boats Chris,Welcome back.

So, $400 street price with a plastic hull? Wow
What is the draw? That you can overpower it and the esc/motor shouldn't blow up?

Not to be too insulting, but I don't know of many ARR out of china/hobby king/ebay that don't have a fiberglass hull and those all cost about half this one.
Sure 2.4ghz but you can get one from H/K for $18, heck the dx3e is only $99.

Sounds like you don't race FE or have built a mono of this size...
400 bucks is a deal for a 50mph boat of this size

The new boat is AWESOME, and that's the RC guy in me talking, not the Traxxas guy. Anticipated price is $400, but that's not locked in. The graphics will change too, anything currently on the web is pre-production stuff. Looks cool, but not final. And we don't have a name yet.

The ABS hull is unlike anything else you've experienced, and gives up nothing to a 'glass hull.

The brushless system is designed specifically for this boat, it's not a retuned version of our car system 9or any car system). It's watercooled and waterproof, and built to handle 6S.

I can't wait until the official release...you're gonna dig it!

I agree about the Hull 100%
people need to stop bashing and drive this thing then make a call if they like it or not..
when can we expect to take delivery of this Sick Mono ?
