Seeing how no one else has answered this posting, I'll give it a shot.
Seeing how you already have a T-Maxx, I can see why you might want to stay with Traxxas because some of the parts are interchangable with the Nitro-Vee.
Yes, we have to tune them for everchanging weather conditions too.
There are other boats in the same category as the Nitro-Vee that others would recommend over it but you have to buy what you like, not us.
The Villian EX can be upgraded easier than the Nitro-Vee. A local owner built his up with twin 6-turn motors. His ESC got so hot that it melted a hole through the bottom of the hull!
