I have just 2 boats over 20", a Spartan and a Genesis, both stock. I think this boat would be a big jump up in performance and quality correct?

I have a couple of good sets of 3s lipos for the boat too.

Decisions, decisions............my heart says yes, but my head says no.
im in the same "boat".
they were 600 some just a few weeks ago, with the new Gieco Z being 629. . . is there 229 bucks worth of difference?

Mine arrived yesterday. I decided to go ahead and buy one! $400 for it is a super deal, itís aweosme. Made very well. Going to maiden it tomorrow I hope.

Iím going to say unless you want to go 75mph, the $229 isnít worth it.

The one I got has the DYNM3831 motors. I saw on Facebook these are the motors from the new Zelos? Not sure about that but interested if someone here knows about that.

Is there any thread post that goes over what I should do before the first run? Other than grease the flex shafts obviously lol.

The 3910 (2000kv) motors were the original Zelos 36 motors, then they changed to the 3831's (2000kv). The Miss Geico 36 has the 3915 motors (1900kv). Here are two threads for you to check out on the boat.

Got my new props from Daboata today. Going to try it out a little later today. They are quite a bit bigger than the stock props.

x447's NICE! 80mph was my best with them running the 3831's and 72mph with the older 3910 motors.

Heís going to text me when the 1715ís become available. Should be soon. I noticed they are bigger, does it throw more water in the air?
Also, the prop nut only has 1 thread sticking out the end from the prop shaft so I put some blue thread lock on them.
The wind has picked up here at the lake so I will wait until tomorrow to try it out.

Some added graphics I had made. You can probably guess my last name.

The x447's don't throw a very high rooster tail at all. I like to use Zuber nuts. They are smaller so you will have a couple more threads sticking out and they lock on the best in my opinion. Below is an old run of my boat running x447's.

I have a few more questions. Do they make a bullet style prop nut for the Zelos?
And I now notice I only have 1 nylon washer under each prop. There should be 2. I can't find any place online that sells them. Not sure if it's an issue, but they put 2 there for a reason.

Personally I don't like to use the bullet nuts but below are the inks.

Bullet style nuts that will fit the Zelos (jam nut is needed as well)

Use these washers instead of the Teflon ones. Only one is required per side as well.
