I want to preface with saying that i've followed the members posts in this forum for the spartan for awhile and have taken some ideas and used them because i thought they were neat. I by no means take credit for the ideas. I just felt they were cool enough to put on my boat! Thanks guys!

HPI Sprint2 VXL
Slash 4x4 PE
This is my recent progress modifying the Spartan. Hobbywing's Seaking 180 AMP ESC partnered up with Castle Creation's 1515 2200kv Mamba Monster motor!!!
I had to flip the servo around and use the short throw hole in order to keep it from dragging the rod on the transom.Modified twin pick up rudder to fit the stock setback in order to save weight. (Kintech Racing)
I also bored out the stock brass bushings so the pin for the aftermarket rudder would fit snug.

Did you enlarge the tubing fitting on the spartan stock rudder ? If so, where can you purchase one that has same threads as rudder ? What size tubing ID/OD did you use ? Thanks.
