    Cool Melbourne/Aust Owners?

    Hey Guys,

    I recently got a Spartan, taken it out a few times and having lots of fun with it. Are there any Melbourne owners here wanna go boating on the weekends?

    Hi guys,

    Sorry to hijack this thread, however I am currently reading up on the Spartan and am considering buying one. I too am in Australia and was wondering where you guys bought yours? If you ordered them from the US, where did you buy and what shipping were you charged?

    Cheers guys.

    Gday all

    Bought mine from lhs too. $599 (everything is more expensive in darwin!). Considering another as my 8 year old now wants to play with it as she reckons her little brushed boat is too slow! Next time I'll get the one that comes with LIPOS included as Nickel Metals are a waste of time. My current one is stock but another might be just what I need to play around with some mods...

    Highroller you wont be disappointed go for it.

    hi milemayhem. Mmmm. All ears for the story.......please share. What mods did you do and how did things unfold? Ive ordered a metal prop / bearings for the strut / new rudder and water outlet for a dual waterline set up / alloy water jacket as well as those flash adjustable trim tabs also with the intention of boosting speed (without blowing anything up i hope!). Also a splash guard just because I could........
