One of the major faults in the vee is that drive line,I'm sure if they went with a flex/stinger set-up from the start, the nitro vee would've been more popular than it is....,anyhooos,glad your back in the game ,what color you gonna paint it ??? yellow,red,...??flourescent nite-glow maaaayyybeeeee.....,

looks like a good project...that d@mn outdrive causes so many handling issues...its a very poor design...in other news for anyone who cares, the youngblood .45 consistantly hit 49mph on radar this past weekend, and jimbat10's vee was also flying at 30mph on stock outdrive, I believe with a flexshaft setup his boat could hit 35mph no problem, the engine absolutely screams...

NICE...my vee was orange with some flat black stripes...that v-box with a stock 260 zen on a tuned pipe should do 40's no problem once trimmed...a modded zen should do 50's and if you really wanna get serious they just released zen cases from billet aluminum that are made to use a reed valve and are suposedly the norm on highend gasser race boats now

Plan on running my stock painted NitroVee Two more times till i start Even More Mod's. I will keep you more informed as it goes. I am staying with the "mouse motors" as I will be useing >.18 OS Engines from TNT MODS, I've tryed stock,and this is best for me. My goal is to have a toy boat that I can play with and play again the next day. NO Problems... I will be doing major outdrive changes, and upgrade electronics. My NitroVee will always have stock look. Drive like the fun on the box. I refuse to be beat,and TRAXXAS Nitro Vee is the biggest piece of CRAP i've ever seen THEM to be alould to sell. Any other RTR is RTR, how can TRAXXAS justify this?? They still sale the SAME CRAPY NitroVee with no improvements even though THEY KNOW IT DON'T WORK. Watch this thread if you got stuck with a NitroVee.

OK here it is and running pretty good, I have done most of the basic mods on it that I learned from this forum and I have to say what a big difference from stock. Water pickup, 440 prop, turn trim tabs and loving it hate to have to sell it, Times are getting hard here and need the cash sucks as I spent alot of time getting it this far and had plans on putting the 2.5 motor in it which I have. Any way I will try and post some pics of it. Thanks to all on here that made this possible.

Yea I wish things were different but I am selling a whole lot of stuff from boats to rc trucks to guns I tried to sell the wife and dog as a package even offered to pay shipping but no takers guess I am stuck with em. The boat was my last resort I don't want to sell it but some of my other stuff isn't moving to well. I haven't listed it anywhere yet trying to put it off as long as I can, anyone on here interested shoot me a pm.

I really doubt you will be able to get alot for it, maybe ebay as people have been bidding nitro vees up high lately, I know I took a hit when I sold mine...anyway good luck though and I hope everything works out well for you...

I am getting a Nitro vee from a friend of mine. He said that it is mostly stock. What mods need to be done to it if any and any one know how fast it is?

BE CAREFUL, "TWISTED LIQUID RACING" MAY NOT TELL YOU THE TRUTH.

HELLO TO EVERYONE, MY NAME IS ALEJANDRO GONZALEZ AND I AM A BIG FAN AND
SUPPORTER OF RC, LIVING IN MEXICO CITY.

ON MAY 15TH, 2007, I ASKED A REPRESENTATIVE IN CUSTOMER SERVICE OF
TWISTED LIQUID RACING IF THEY COULD SEND ME SOME ACCESSORIES FOR MY
"MISS VEGAS" TO NEW YORK BECAUSE DUE TO WORK I WAS GOING TO TRAVEL FOR
5 DAYS TO THE BIG APPLE. AFTER THAT, I RECEIVED AN EMAIL FROM JAMES
BARRINGER (THE OWNER OF THE STORE) WHERE HE WROTE THAT WITHOUT ANY
PROBLEMS THEY COULD SEND EVERYTHING TO THE HOTEL WHERE I WAS GONNA
STAY. IN THAT SAME EMAIL HE PROPOSED ME THE POSSIBILITY OF BEING AN
AUTHORIZED RETAILER OF TWISTED LIQUID RACING BECAUSE I WAS HIS FIRST
CLIENT IN MEXICO. AFTER THINKING ABOUT IT AND AFTER A FEW CHATS WITH
JAMES ABOUT PRICE LISTS, ACCESSORY LISTS AND SHIPPING OPTIONS, I SAID
YES TO WHAT I THOUGHT WAS AN EXCELLENT IDEA. TO CREATE A PLACE WHERE
YOU COULD EASYLY GET RC STUFF IN MEXICO AND JAMES ALSO SEEMED
TRUSTWORTHY THOSE DAYS. AFTER WE SETTLED AN AGREEMENT HE TOLD ME THAT
IT WAS NOT NECESSARY TO SEND THE THINGS TO NEW YORK. "EVERYTHING IS
GOING TO ARRIVE TO MEXICO WITH NO PROBLEMS", HE SAID.

ON JUNE 8TH, 2007, I MADE MY FIRST ORDER FOR WHICH I PAID $835.00 USD.
IT INCLUDED A THUNDERCAT 31 TOTALLY TRANSFORMED BY TWISTED LIQUID
RACING AND VARIOUS ACCESSORIES FOR A MISS VEGAS AND FOR A TRAXXAS.

THE SHIPMENT WAS SUPPOSED TO ARRIVE IN APPROXIMATELY 20 DAYS. 4 WEEKS
LATER JAMES TOLD ME THAT THE PACKAGE HAD BEEN REJECTED AT CUSTOM
SERVICES GETTING INTO MEXICO AND HE ASKED ME TO DON'T GET DESPERATE,
THAT HE WOULD DIVIDE THE ORDER IN VARIOUS PACKAGES TO AVOID PROBLEMS
WITH CUSTOM SERVICES IN MEXICO. I REQUESTED HIM TO SPECIFICALLY USE UPS
BECAUSE I HAVE RECEIVED MANY THINGS FROM TOWER HOBBIES THROUGH THEM AND
I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS. HE DID NOT LISTEN AND AFTER THE THIRD
TIME HE SENT THE THINGS THROUGH REGULAR U.S. MAIL SERVICE HE SUPPOSEDLY
USED FEDEX BUT HE NEVER SENT ME A TRACKING NUMBER SO I DON'T KNOW IF
THIS EVEN HAPPENED.

I LOST PAYPAL'S REFUND BECAUSE I SPENT TOO MUCH TIME TRUSTING THESE
GUYS AND BELIEVING THAT THE THINGS WILL FINALLY ARRIVE. AFTER SENDING A
LOT OF EMAILS TO JAMES AND TO CUSTOMER SERVICES, THINGS STARTED TO GET
DARKER AND THEY STOPPED ANSWERING ME VIA EMAIL, CHAT AND PHONE WITHOUT
SOLVING MY PROBLEM.

UNTIL TODAY, ON DECEMBER 2007, I HAVE ONLY RECEIVED ACCESSORIES WICH
COSTED $200.00 USD. AND I'M STILL WAITING (MAYBE IN VAIN) A REFUND FOR
$635.00 USD.

THEY ASKED ME TO SEND AN ADDRESS IN THE U.S. FOR THEM TO BE EASIER TO
SEND THE REFUND. I GAVE THEM THE ADDRESS OF A RELATIVE WHO LIVES IN
TEXAS AND AGAIN AFTER SOME TIME THEY TOLD ME THAT THE REFUND HADN'T
ARRIVED BECAUSE THE ADDRESS A SENT DIDN'T EXIST,OF COURSE THAT IS NOT TRUE... I GIVE THEM THE PHONE NUMBER TOO AND NOTHING!!. I REQUESTED THEM TO
SEND THE REFUND THROUGH PAYPAL AND IT WAS THE SAME. I DON'T KNOW WHAT
ELSE TO DO TO SOLVE THIS SITUATION IN AN EASY WAY, PLEASE HELP ME TO
CONTACT THE RESPECTIVE AUTHORITIES TO FIND A LEGAL SOLUTION. I KNOW
THAT IT'S GONNA BE COMPLICATED TO MANAGE IT FROM MEXICO, HOWEVER I'VE
GOT COPIES OF THE INVOICES, EMAILS AND CHAT SESSIONS THAT BACKUP
EVERYTHING I'M TELLING YOU.

AS A PERSONAL ADVISE I WANT TO RECOMMEND YOU TO BE VERY CAREFUL IN
PICKING WHERE YOU WILL BUY RC STUFF, SPECIALLY IF YOU'RE GONNA DO IT
OUTSIDE OF THE U.S. SHOPS LIKE TOWER HOBBIES GUARANTEES YOU THEIR
DELIVERIES AND ARE REALLY COMPROMISED IN SUPPORTING THEIR CLIENTS. I
CAN'T GENERALIZE AND SAY THAT EVERY CASE IS THE SAME WITH TWISTED
LIQUID RACING, HOWEVER, ALL YOU HAVE READ IS REAL AND IS HAPPENING TO
ME, SO IF I'M POSTING THIS IS BECAUSE I WANT TO PREVENT YOU OF MAKING
THE SAME MISTAKE I DID, DOING BUSINESSES WITH PEOPLE THAT MAY NOT TELL
YOU THE TRUTH AND I ALSO WANT TO GET MY MONEY BACK; I'M NOT PLANNING TO
GIVE ANYTHING TO THESE PEOPLE.
I HOPE TLR FINISH THIS PROBLEM AS MOST BE

REMEMBER, BE CAREFUL AND THANKS VERY MUCH AS ALWAYS.

GREETINGS FROM MEXICO.

ALEJANDRO GONZALEZ
