Only thing im gonna say is think really hard before you jump.
Dont need to buy new ones just bend them.
sounds like your trim tabs arent set right and boat is off balance. take inner trim tabs off and shift battery weight around make sure your strut is at 0 degrees. what is your whole setup and lipos?
unhook your receiver plug in lipos and see if the ESC still does the same thing. Its probably your receiver either call traxxas about warranty or just buy a new one. I see that the green light is on...
fiberglass plz (lol)
OAHU more than likely its probably shot but you could still give it a try. Hey at least they are only like 30 or so dollars.
supersnake is right the rice thing does work but make sure everything is completely dry before you hook power back to it.
reason i put on the same side i check my boats every time they go by to make sure water is still flowing.
I put mine on the same side as the other one just easier to see when it goes by but that is up to you.
IMO the stock 1800kv is plenty for this boat on 6s with a 180esc..reason i say 180 it gives u more of a prop selection to choose from..stock esc doesn't like much over an x442..
to be honest i like just running it on 4s now 50-53 mph cruising around is actually fun and relaxing...lol
o yea a cat is alot more stable than a v hull at high speeds i wasnt saying try and do that with the spartan as it becomes unstable at speeds over 60 unless its setup very well.I have have had my...
I have that setup in my gens cat with a y547 i have hit 79 twice
47mm prop won't hit the rudder. what is your whole setup edge?
green means LVD is on red means off
I always run the same mah, c rating, and make.. Like in 3s i use 5000mah 65-130c also make sure u use a balance charger and dont ever run them below 80% leave atleast 20% or more on your lipo after...
change that to 53.6 now!!
So far with y547 i got 48.5mph
I have a y547prop ima try tomorrow. I know its probably gonna be to much but what the heck. Im gonna make one round and check the temps.
If it were me i would go with a prather stainless 220 if u want stainless or a octura m445 would be a really nice prop as well.
offshoreelectrics has them already s&b and so does rocketcityracing.com... and yes that is all stock except motor cooling jacket,dual rudder pickup, and the m445 prop.
Just got from the pond running 4s and a m445 prop..GPS at 45mph!! and that was actually really fun and relaxing.Temps where all below 100f soon as i get some more props i wanna try i will let ya know...
If u want stainless 220 would be fine maybe even a 225.. On the option for copper x442,x642,x445,x447,m445,m545 and m447 should all be fine always check for heat. What are u mainly looking for more...
Traxxas Spartan 4s P225 on youtube hits 39mph.. Have u watched it?
Idk but you and pavmentsurfer have really got me wanting to see how fast i can run on stock batts and 4s now...lol
Hopefully i will get a chance tomorrow and i will let ya know.
With stock prop to...
