    Thinking About Buying A Traxxas Spartan

    Hey I want to mabey buy a traxxas spartan and I'm just wondering what your guys opinion is. This is my first boat I have ever owned but I have been driving rc cars for almost 10 years. Just wondering for what to look out for and if it is a good first boat. Thanks in advance.

    this boat is no difference running with your truck, only one exception it can turn like you wont believe at fast speed, not so much at low speed though.

    You should purchase also another rescue boat for retrieval in case you flip it or stalls in the middle of the water, my opinion is less $$$ on upgrading this boat compare to the trucks, for additional of $200 approx. your good to go everything would be swoosh..

    on the Nihm it will only do about 7 mins........ I have mine with TeamOrion 6s Lipo 4700MAH and it does 15mins. So if you buy a Spartan always buy Lipo. Not just for the speed also for the power. A boat uses more batt then a car because of the water resistance.
