More over-head for prop "experimenting" or get some good 5s runs with it.

Wow that looked good. Little back end wiggle out of the turns but like you said little trimming fix that. Impressive to say the least!

Yep. That's Hugh's new boat. It did GPS somewhere in the 40's but don't recall exactly what it was. Seems like it was 43 or so.

I do remember him saying he was running a single 4s pack and guessing it was a 5000 but don't know what c rating it was (probably 40). Not sure on the prop either. The video of it was as it came out of the box, the GPS run was later in the day and think he had changed props.

4s on the stock ESC, but if you get a higher amp/voltage capable ESC the stock motor should be plenty happy on 5s.

Got mine yesterday and i like the looks of it. I dropped mine in the pond with two 2c 5000mah 40c and i like the way it handles. I ran into an isue half way through my first packs and found the boat completly flooded. Blew some air in the water cooling ine and found the water jacket is the problem. They are sending me a new one but I have never put one on before. Any idea how hard it is. i have heard that the o-rings are the hardest part getting them in perfectly. I have a jacket from kintec that I ordered for my ul-1 sitting in a drawer and just never got around to it.
Thanks,Eric

Put a bit of grease/lube on the o-rings before you try to slide the jacket on the motor, and just look for any areas where it is obviously pinched.

I saw it happen to a guys Motley Crew as well, when he pulled the motor you could see the o-ring bunched up creating a big leak. You might find that the stock jacket is fine if you re-install it properly.
