    Being electric, noise shouldn't be a problem.

    Be careful around birds. If anyone sees your boat near or chasing a duck, you can count on signs banning RC going up shortly.

    The Triton just might get me back into FE. I first tried it 10-12 years ago. I spent well over $1000 to go 50MPH back then. After smoking a couple speed controls and an Aveox motor, I packed...

    I haven't broken anything yet. The body posts are getting thin due to it sliding on the roof a lot, but that's my fault.

    I'd like to see more wheel/tire combos than anything.

    I'm expecting closer to 1 June, but 20...

    I bet some heavy grease would work real good for that. It would allow a little bit of play, but that would make the truck more usable when not crawling.

    They need someone to do a sanity check on their accessory list.

    There's another simple solution I use in my RC boats to bypass the main battery.

    I use a 9 volt battery with a pigtail from Radio Shack and solder a reciever plug on it. It's small so you can fit...
