    The rule of thumb is 50c minimum in boats. If you can afford a higher c rate go for it. I only run 50C batteries in my boat with no issues. Hope this helps!

    On a Spartan the motor is the most prone to failure imo. However if you keep the bearings in check and you should be fine. I second spartantamer on the idea of an x442. They sell CNC ones on Kintec...

    I use a Hyperion EOS0610i DUO and I am very pleased with it. Its capable of charging at up to 10amps at 360watts. It can also charge two lipos at once which is a fantastic feature for me. I love mine.

    spartantamer is correct. The x442 is stock and yes anything larger will heat up the electronics. To what degree I am unsure. But the x543 will have more pitch and more diameter. Both of which...

    The problems were not with overheating. The setup was simply over amped. The prop and motor pulled more amps than the esc was able to provided. Causing quite a smokey ordeal. The prop was too big and...

    Well then at this point I would keep your strut at the neutral position. That should help with handling and give you the best of both worlds (hopefully). Move the batteries forwards only when you are...

    I’ve had that issue before with my catamaran but not with my Spartan. Most of the time when I get out of the throttle on my Spartan it usually settles right back down in the water. I would recommend...

    Any 3/16 propellors fit the Spartan. Traxxas designed the flex with a 3/16 stub shaft so that almost every type of prop will fit. I ran a .187 flex in my Spartan and it was fine. The only advantage...

    If you want to run 6S reliably from what I have found you need to go all the way up to a race class 1/8th scale truggy/buggy. That chassis should handle it fine. The main features that they offer...

    Make sure that you grease it EVERY run. Donít listen for the whine, at that point it could be too late. The design of the flex cable in the Spartan is poor in that it allows the flex to auger out the...

    All ESC’s (at least every single one I have seen) come with a standard JR 3 pin connector. This is the same connector that comes stock on the Traxxas ESC. So yes your new ESC will work with your...

    I recommend using Grimracer’s Speed Grease. Kintec Racking sells it. I use this in all my boats and it works like a charm. Never had an issue with it. It is much thicker than the stock grease that...

    No. The Spartan is an amp hog to begin with. Adding that extra 3mm of diameter to the wheel would be detrimental. You are just waiting for either your batteries or esc to go. If you want to swing a...

    Does this affect turning? The boat already turns so sharply it will spin out. I just see it as an increase in needless drag. However I will not deny that it does look awesome. Let us know what your...
