Just an FYI...If you get a turnigy 180, and your going to run 6s, be sure to disable the bec and run a external rx pack..

That is what that 1900mah battery is in your boat, I was wondering why that was in there.

I dont see any sizes of the flex shaft or collet..Your gonna want to use .187 flex..As for the strut you have, that would work good with a flooded stuffing tube but I would probably opt for a stinger instead..
