    Thinking the same thing. I have no idea if it's just a new hull design, or if there's something new hiding inside...
    Is owning 27 RC's too many? No way!

    I've seen a few pics of this thing and a video from a local hobby store. It was shown with a Spartan and a new Promarine boat. They said it was supposed to be available in June sometime! I can't wait to see it up close myself!

    Has to be coming real soon if there is a sku for it. Hopefully Traxxas doesn't let us down and brings something amazing.

    I love the scale cockpit. Hopefully it has 1/8 scale electronics. I just preordered.

    No secrets, I can always cancel my order if I'm not happy with the electronics. I have at least a month to decide. If it looks awesome then I'll be one of the first in line. So far I like!

    I found a pic online showing a partial interior shot. Looks like the same esc as the Spartan. I wouldn't be suprised if the electronics were the same.

    But the electronics from the Spartan weren't bad so.......a new hull design will draw us in right?

    I hope we're not expecting electronics that will render a 100mph boat???

    My only concern would be that the 40"cat hull with the scale interior is probably heavier and longer than the spartan. Thats a pretty big hull for a 36mm diameter motor. well have to wait and see. And you know everyone is going to want to run it on 6s with bigger props.

    A model that large should have a driver.



    ... and maybe another person puking over the side.

    A Cat pulls less amps vs a Mono
    I am betting upper 50's to low 60's is doable with the 14 series motor on 6s

    My local HobbyTown guy showed me the spec's. From what I see, it has the same electronics as the Spartan...a VXL6 Marine ESC and a Brushless 540 motor. Down the road I might get one, or I may just get the hull to build my own. As of now, I have my Spartan and my BlackJack30...both good boats.

    It looks like an ABS hull to me. I personally believe if it was fiberglass or something like that they would have told us by now.
    Is owning 27 RC's too many? No way!

    ABS hull is cheaper I'm sure but if you do not hit anything it will last a long time. all IMO; Don

    I preordered one to, the first day pictures were online.I race a Spartan so it just makes sense.

    I have some 6.5mm Castle Creations connectors and a 180 a esc on the way already as well.I just need a few telemetry parts and I'll be ready to try new props.
