    I think default is 15*. I wouldn't move it up. It will just cause more amp draw.

    Reason for selling is that I want to get back in to land based RC's. Wife said, "Sell the big white boat then!" This thing is fun, but I want to get back in to racing 4WD off road.

    SJS, good idea. Removing the bushings will allow the area to fill with grease for better lubrication. I may try this. Bearings can be found here.


    I guess maintaining them after each run will be...

    Did you bore out the busing? If you didn't and you just pushed in the bearing the shaft will still ride in it, causing friction. I would of removed the bushings and just left the shaft to ride in the...

    Here is what I found with mine.

    I bought an HK- XK 1600kv, 4082 motor. On 6S, 2P it's ridiculous with a Grim 4255 prop. At full throttle the boat is everywhere. So I decided to go 4S, 2P and run...

    Yes it will. I run a 1600kv 4082. Honestly the stock tray is very flimsy. You might want to figure putting a wedge of pool noodle at least under the can to support it a but and keep it from flexing.

    Looks great. You'll love the trim tabs. Also, IMO, the stock rudder is too short and can be a reason for the boat to chime walk. When in a straight line the rudder acts as a stabilizer too.

    Actually that's only 8000 MAH. The MAH only doubles when you parallel, not series. When you run 2, 3S 4000 MAH packs for 6S you don't get 8000 mah. You get 4000@ 6S.

    A leopard 4074 1800kv should make it move very well on 4S and swing a nice size prop while still staying in the 120A threshold of that ESC.

    Never seen 1 with 8. I know the "r" came with 5, 2 extra caps. But nice to know they're beefing it up.

    I assume you're referring to the capacitors? They are off to the side? If you remove them you...

    OSE has Prather and Octura props for $14-$16 each. You can balance and polish yourself relatively easy. Octura X442 is pretty much the same as the AQ 42x55. You can also go with a Prather 220.

    Thanks, Orca. It actually is a combination of the hardware off the Vanquish and the Pursuit. Very inexpensive and very well made.

    Castle 2200, Prather 220, and 6s. I hope my cheapie HK Suppo "Birdie" 200A ESC holds up then, so I can run my 4082 1600kv motor on 6S with a 48mm carbon prop. Shooting for 50 with no flames, lol! I...

    The motor that is in there is already pushing the ESC, amperage wise, because of its small size and high KV in this big boat. You should definitely be able to use a lower KV motor, even of a larger...

    Why not get a Leopard, Tacon, or even a Tiurnigy 4074 1300-1600kv motor and run it on 6S with a larger prop? It will draw less power and you could keep the stock Castle ESC, if yours still works. If...
