Not out yet so hard to say. Their is already a thread on this boat as well as the other new PB offerings.

What we do know is the following:
- Hull design is proven (MG & Mystic)
- Proven Spektrum rx
- PB motors are typically decent
- New esc style so no clue on it's reliablity.
- Hardware looks good


We also know that 1800kv motors on 6s typicallly does not = long term relibilty. Personally im disguisted PB followed traxxas is promoting this 6s on everything in Gods creation none sense... Since when did 6s automatically mean FAST O yea when the Spartan came out how did any of us ever go fast in the past w/o putting 6s in everything Does normally give me hours of entertainment watching people place 6s in everything and watching the smoke roll out: No one cares about setting stuff up propely and tuning for better results... just stick a bigger battery in it, that means faster.........

Sorry for my rant. I'm working through my problems I swear.

i agree even tho im still a newbie but from wat ive seen a well set up hull such a scorps can hit over 50 on 4s which would be wicked fast my apparition running a 4074 leopard on 4s is almost to hard to handle it pops the front out of the water which is enough power for me if you know what your doin 4s is heaps definatley seems like an obsession with 6s tho lol

Hmmmm This coming from somebody that likes to run 10s on a regular basis.

There is an advantage to higher voltages (it's the only way to go running a big hull) but I don't see a 29" Blackjack as falling into a 6s category.
I have 4s boats, 6s boats and 9-10s boats. They are all different animals and set up to run that way. Throwing 6s in a 4s setup is a good way to let the magic smoke out of an esc or motor (or both.)
