It will have a better top end because of the 14.4v, and that the Titan are a high torque motor so the boat will be pushed through the water a lot easier and kept up at top speed easier. However it will not have double the runtime. Because the batteries are only run in series then it will probably have about the same or a little better runtime as the standard villain with only one battery but with two batteries the standard villain should out run the runtime of the EX. But the villain still has the down side of the XL-1 and stingers which are very inefficient and power robbers so anything is still possible. If the standard villain ever came with a nice efficient pair of motors and ESC then it would definitely run longer on two batteries then the EX.
