    The hull looks awesome, but I wonder if Traxxas will offer it in a color scheme that is not techno-puke?

    This boat has my attention. First order of business will be to paint over that seizure inducing color scheme. I can't express how ugly I think that looks.

    Funny how they dropped the yellow on the Summit and they came up with these colors... No go...

    New Boat From Traxxas!!!

    Modeled after the DCB brand boats. The real cats run north of 170 MPH with big Mercury racing turbo power.

    That paint is unfortunate. DCB actually paints their boats very tastefully and elegant. But that's what you get when you buy a million dollar Cat.

    I was just gonna say, Courtney. Got one ordered and when I get it out of the box it's going to the paint booth. Come on Traxxas, or should I encode that boys to Tiawan instructions?

    Would've been nice if they stayed true to the brands real paint schemes

    I wonder if they'll release another color

    Do you guys think the color scheme will hurt the sales of this boat?

    New Boat From Traxxas!!!

    Dude on another forum ordered one and said he spoke with someone at traxxas that said a solid red with black stripes will be offered too. Kinda like the real boat shown above. Don't know how reliable that is though.

    I know the owner of DCB. guess I could text and ask him lol.
