String's Pursuit vs Scorps Villain........

Ok.............the speculation of these two boats has been thrown around, i made a competitive comment about racing him, several didnt give me a snowballs chance............good race............we both had the shakes afterward, it really gets the adrenalin goin'.

String:
32" Pursuit mono
Leopard 2200kv 4074
2 x 2s 40c lipo
stock 42mm prop

Scorp:
31" Traxxas Villain
Feigao 1260kv 3674
2 x 3s 40c lipo
x440


Here ya go..............very fun...........we had a blast today, 4 of us and about 15 boats! We have become RC commrades!

Thats Strings voice at the very end of the vid...........

Great running...

Brand new Pursuit was running great ! Only the second run on the Pursuit. First run was kinda slugush but this run was much better. I guess shaft getting broken in. Great running by scorp. Thanks for the video. The last passing turn was freaky !!!. Was that inside the bouy !!!!. I think he made it but what a great turn. The Pursuit is so smooth running. Love it. Will get better at it though. Still the small stock prop, the X440 would not quite fit with the stock shaft which I will be changing to Kintec's one piece next week. Pretty darn fast for 4s !!!!

Yeah, his stock prop is freakishly detounged...........the motor temp after the race was 93*, on ESC + Batts too..............strange huh? I still think an x445 would be a good fit. It is a very sturdy boat and as you can see it ran much smoother and stabler than mine.

^^ Those temps are REALLY low, it can definitely take more prop!

It should run in the mid 50's on that motor with the right batteries and prop.

I wasn't going to say anything but... Scorp would have to run an extra lap after that pass if the judges saw it.

Actually you did well. Once you got past string couldn't catch back up to you. :thumbup: if only it worked here.
Better than a fuzzy blocker just throw what it normally blocks over it. Probably a bad idea though. Then it would then lead to a worn out spot in the video.
