    The Official Spartan Gallery! Post your pics here!

    We will start off with the rules :

    For starters, this thread is for strictly for pictures and/or videos of your Traxxas Spartan. If you have a question about someone's boat, its upgrades, or anything else, please send that user a personal message (PM). The picture & video gallery is not a place for chit chat. Any posts that do not comply with this rule will be removed. This applies to, but is not limited to, any off topic posts as well.

    Secondly, The maximum picture size is 640 x 480 pixels. Believe it or not, everyone doesn't have a large computer monitor or high speed Internet. Large pictures can force users to scroll sideways (which is annoying), or use large quantities of time loading the pictures. If you post pictures that are larger than 640 x 480 pixels, they will be removed.

    Please remember that all pictures and videos must comply with the Traxxas Online Community forum rules. This includes song lyrics, comments made on your You Tube page, etc. If one of the forum rules are violated, your post(s) will be removed and you will be given warning points at my discretion.

    That's pretty much it.

    Enjoy it guys!

    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!

    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.

    Cooling Mods

    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.
