What ESC was that? Was it 3S compatible?

The 17" Barbwire motor will be slower than the FT012 outrunner.

Where’s the best place to get this boat? Looking for a USA seller so I can get by Christmas.

No promises you'll see it before xmas though. Shipping seems extra slow this year. Took me 7 or more days to get a 2-day delivery from Walmart. This is really a late time for xmas shopping online.

I've had orders that normally take 3 days max to reach me take up to 10 days in the past 2 weeks. It seems all of the carriers (UPS, Fedex, & USPS) are absolutely slammed right now. I think perhaps this year has seen the biggest surge in online holiday shopping ever, and maybe they weren't prepared for it.

I heard many of the delays are weather related. They've had a lot of snow issues so far.

None of my late deliveries should have been affected by weather, however I'm sure for some people that's a definite possibility.

Snow rarely delays my deliveries by more than a day or two even if they're coming from an area dealing with heavy snow, and arriving while we are dealing with heavy snow.

The latest version of this boat is now back in stock, and available at Banggood here.

The changes as far as I know are simply a more reliable motor, and ESC. My lake is currently frozen, but I will test the newest version as soon as I can.

I just got the joysway version of this boat at my local hobby shop. It has a separate rx.

The Mad Shark and Mono-X share the same motor. Likewise, the Atomik Barbwire Mono-X clone also uses that motor.

That means the new longer motor in the new Barbwire-2 should fit as well. The rest of the Atomik boat has not changed except for a 32mm prop in place of the 30mm on the Barb-1. Potential future upgrade for the Mad Shark 2?
