None adjustable drive line bad
Kick back rudder good
brushed 380 bad no power / needs motor swap
Nimh batts , bad /less power and more weight than lipo.
esc old tech
hull is ok but 100+ bucks to get it is your choice.

Straight drive line can be taken out if you wish to upgrade.
Boat cant take much more then 600w.
Twin 300w brushless motors would be fast with a single 4S pack in the middle. water cooled in runners 2800kv / x427 props.

Good boat for a young lad 14yrs of age. :popcorn: or a adult with money to burn on upgrades.

Its a nice boat... but slower than their original Proboat Mini-C.

The run time is about 5 minutes on their provided Dynamite battery.

I bought it and don't really feel like running it anymore just because it is so slow... but it looks REALLY nice...

If you don't mind tinkering get a used Mini-C junk the guts and upgrade.:cool:
I did that and ended up with a fun boat for cheap.
Quite a few upgrade threads on RCG.
Great for running anywhere and easy to haul around.
I have some pretty fast and expensive boats but sometimes the ones that are easy to set up and cart around are the most fun.:D

BTW I saw your avatar.
Do you have a Mini?
I have a 2004 JCW with the MC-40 package.
Fun car!
