View Full Version : Petition! New Boat!

Who thinks Traxxas needs to make a new boat. It has been like 6 years or so since they made a new one. Who thinks they need a new boat? Put your name and screen name.
It is worth a shot. Doesnt mean they will listen to us though, but it is worth a shot!?!?
Take It To The Maxx!

I'm not into boats but I'll get one if T makes a dual engine one that makes long roosters!
it's called the tweak scratch...
04-16-2001, 09:18 AM
sure i'll sign it, hope they consider it but they willnot unless alot more people sign this.
don't jump in front of a train,they hurt
04-16-2001, 10:21 AM
I would like to see a boat maybe a little faster?
04-16-2001, 10:22 AM
I think it should be a nitro outrigger
Nitro all the way

Anew boat with a dual .21,some 2 speed trannies for their cars and not always thinking of the BEGINNER would all be cool.

count me in.
i say it should be a "fan boat" it'd be real simple, airplane engine on top with like an 8 inch blade and a rudder in water.

how about a tunnel , or hydro ?
08-23-2001, 06:58 PM
see dual engines and 2 speed trannies??? I have a feeling if they ever make a new boat it will be with the trx pro engine. And i think they would make it rtr because face it traxxas doesnt specialize in boats so making a boat for advanced boaters wouldnt bring in the big numbers they want for sales. Not to spoil your fun, i am all for a new boat, buti doubt it will happen and if we see anything new it will be a lot like the nitro vee in performance wise
08-24-2001, 12:01 AM
i looked at the nitro v and really liked its rts system which is something youve got to give credit for to traxxas, but for maybe 300$ more they could really make a boat that would just go faster then anyone would ever want to.it may exclude some buyers budgets but most people end up putting alot into them anyway,with all the boats out there i had to go with the shockwave pro boat with the zenoah, i still had to spend an extra 250$ for the clutch, water pump and tuned exhaust. i just wanted something bigger then the V, and the regular gas without a glow plug is hard to beat for the fun factor. id like to see a 50+ mph on the box if they make a new boat. it sold alot of 4 tecs just by having that on the box.
08-24-2001, 12:27 AM
I am pretty sure that the shockwave cost around 900 bux new so that will discourge people a little. Also speed is obtained by running higher percent nitro than just sticking a big motor in it. I had a prather boat that went close to 40 mph with 25% nitro and was possible of speeds of excess of 50 mph. To make a boat go 50 traxxas would need to design a whole new motor to go 50 mph. And really to make a boat go faster than abody would ever want qwould require traxxas to spend quite a bit of money to manufactor all the parts then what if they dont sell?? As i said i had a prather 31 inch boat and brand new it would cost over $550 just to get rtr then you have to buy all the starting equipment and it was a hassle to start but fun to run but i still think traxxas will make a tunnel hull powered by a trx pro is really there only option from a busness's view.
08-26-2001, 02:52 PM
i think that they should make a CAT that would be the coolest and make one that is fiberglass and can race with the big guys like bandit boats and maus.
08-27-2001, 02:17 AM
I'm for 2 speed, and reverse, like tmaxx

Nitro Power Kid
has upgraded Nitro Vee (rocks)
would like to see a fast hydro that's not for beginners but has good features like the Vee.
:D:D:D Got Nitro? :D:D:D
Sure I would like to see a new boat. One with twin TRX Pro .15 in it. Wider and faster and reverse. And a cooling pump that pumps all the time at an idle and not over heat. Like the real boats.

Guys: putting a 2-speed in a boat is pointless, the resistance against the prop only gets greater the faster the boat goes... it isn't a car.
08-07-2002, 10:38 PM
I would love to see traxxas make a new boat. If they decide to do one they need to listen to what we are saying right now. If i am going to buy a traxxas boat it must go at least 35 mph out of the box. They can do it..... the ? is are they going to do it.
Traxxas if you are truley listening......
08-08-2002, 11:26 PM
Yes they should make a new boat! or a nitro vee with a tuned pipe more fuel pressure and better QC at the factory!
08-08-2002, 11:40 PM
I wish they would make a boat w/ fiberglass hull, .21 big block, tuned pipe, and all out racing hop ups. Sort of like a nitro vee 'pro', except bigger.
08-09-2002, 10:36 AM
Hmm i like that..... THE NITRO VEE PRO!!!! would be sweet.
08-13-2002, 10:02 PM
what i want to see is a nitro hydroplane, like the new miss budwiser from proboat, awesome boat, and i think a .15 would be better in it than a .21, for one .21s are huge and heavy, for a hydro plane you need it to be light, no heavy, .15 or a .12 would be best, IMO.
08-13-2002, 11:01 PM
yea, I like the hydro idea. What does IMO mean?
08-14-2002, 12:54 PM
IMO=In MY Opinion........
08-15-2002, 02:58 PM
would be nice, something fast, to many electric only 1 nitro so we are forced to buy it that put a new t-maxx motor because they winned now we are we need planes and helies too....
08-16-2002, 11:34 AM
you got my vote!!!!!!
08-16-2002, 12:33 PM
I'd like to a boat from Traxxas come stock with at least 1 HP. and a steel prop.
08-20-2002, 02:13 PM
Yeh traxxas should make a new fiberglass hulled nitro boat. mabye with a big block. or mabye the could try and keep the price low.
I would want boat with twin screws...... big engines and the price wouldnt be that expensive. It would be cool if it had different servos for the two engines, so i could but one in forward and one is reverse that would be a cool boat.
08-20-2002, 02:31 PM
I think that a .21 hydro would be really cool. And for you saying that a .21 is just too big and heavy, they make way more power than a .12-.15 can
08-20-2002, 04:48 PM
hey danN, its been awhile. are you still having trouble with your boat like you were a while ago?
08-25-2002, 01:49 PM
gets my vote !
08-25-2002, 07:57 PM
this needs to be moved to like the t maxx freestyle forum so it will get like 1000 votes!
08-27-2002, 11:30 AM
08-06-2003, 09:55 PM
Much better quality!!!!:D
08-07-2003, 02:48 PM
Definitly a 2.5 twin engine boat ! the "ultimate Vee"? Just an idea haha
08-07-2003, 03:14 PM
Great idea! I would really like to see something like a 50" fiberglass hull with either dual nitro engines, or a gas watercooled engine. It would be for someone with a Nitro Vee to expand on. Traxxas could add some great features. I would probably be willing to pay the money. Traxxas PLEASE !!!!
08-07-2003, 04:47 PM
I just sent an E-Mail to Traxxas asking them to look at this thread!! I hope they consider making a new boat. :cool: :) :cool: :D :cool:
08-07-2003, 09:28 PM
I want a fiberglass CAT that is a little bigger than the vee. It would be awesome if it had a 2 speed tranny and a 2.5 with a tuned pipe.
08-07-2003, 10:37 PM
Olmost every other person that repled to this thread wants a 2spd tranny but it would do no good on a boat!! There is no reson for it. It would probly slow the boat down. why do you think no real boat has one.
08-08-2003, 07:01 AM
2.5 init (at least). and a 2 speed will b useful cos u could use direct drive as the first gear and then wen the boat gets to max rpm where it develops more power it switches gear to use the more power. reverse would b good but not necesery. good cooling, tune pipe, good prop, a deep vee hull and counter rotating props on the smae shaft that way steering will b better and torque will. i know thats over the top but if tis half as good as that ill b happy.
08-08-2003, 08:04 AM
We want a NEW boat !!
