Villain EX

I run the Villain EX wiht the cooling Kit and a Pair of Orion Super Duty 3000Mah NMIH packs for power and this boat is hot.

In a little chop the boat handles really well, on calmer water the boat is quick and a lot of fun to drive. The factory trim setting on the drives is nice but with a little amount of trimming up and a couple of 7 cell packs this boat will be even more impressive. The ESC can handle up to 16.8 Volts so 7 cells will work fine.

Tips and HINTS:

The cooling kit is a must, Traxxas boasts a 50% reduction in heat on the motors with the kit installed and they are not kidding. I get 10-12 min run times on those packs and the motors stay pretty cool on a hot day.

My recomendation is to reset the ESC to have full 100% forward and no reverse, cause if you rty to drive in reverse at all, the boat will fill with water.

Make sure that you check all the screws/ bolts on the drives after each day of running and keep the bushings lubed.
