Just did not like it. TO SMALL! kinda slow. But with the motor i got it sped up. I got into trucks and the boat set on the self for about 1 month and have not run it since then. So just want to put something up on this forum. Traxxas should make a boat that was nitro, around 40 in. long, fiberglass hull, rtr, painted yellow blue red or unpainted or something. That would get me back into boats and would probly sell big. It would be cool.

traxxas do make a nitro boat, the nitro-Vee,
why a fibreglass hull? fiberglass can shatter easly!
the blast is cool if you tune it up, get a good speedo, 10x3 mod motor, ect and it is a mental boat, also you can buy big hulls from your hobby shop and put the blast transmision into is, the blast is quite fast because it is direct drive, so if you get a bigger hull you can try different props on it to get the required speed.

The blast can be very fast because of it's light weight.

I had a 17t saphire in it and i flipped it once. On 2in. waves, thats pretty small. It can be fast but its to small for me. Ive thought about buying another boat, a villian and putting some low turn motors and dual rooster set up or super rooster, or dula SR. Just thoughts, never went into detail with it.

I have the sapphire in my boat too, and that thing jumps out of the water, I hops like crazy. You can put a 10X3 mod motor in there? You mean that boat won't go crazy?

I couldnt see a 10 in a b... i mean i can see one and all, but id think that would be for someone with a big pond and not many waves. Ive thought about putting something like a couple 10x4's in a villian. I think that boat could handle it, the train might have some problems if anything.

yeah i put my Team kinwald dirtinator 2 10x4 in my blast once, with my novak (no limit) ESC, and the boat was freakin mental!!!, i had to put a larger prop on it tho, because it was going so fast that air was getting sucked in at the rear of the boat, so the prop was not in the water, (and i was loosing speed,) i had to take the boat out ofter every 4 mins to cool down, but it was fun!!
i have another project now, i got 2 tunnelhydro hulls, so i am making one of them into a 10 cell 10 turn rocket!!!!
i have only prepared the hull up to this point, as i don't have a lot of time, with college, friends, toring car racing, work ,etc, etc,...!
