    Villain EX slower after prop change...also can you recommend some speed upgrades?

    Snapped one of my props so I bought two new matching Traxxas direct replacement ones. I noticed the new ones were only sharp on one edge and the trailing edge was flat and thicker. So it's stronger but it barely moves in reverse.

    The boat feels at least 5 mph slower.

    Can someone recommend me a good set of props (and a vendor) along with some easy upgrades to get a bit extra speed out of my boat?

    Did you buy the right props? If you bought the props for the Villain IV, your boat would be slower.
