This is the Traxxas Spartan High Performance Race Boat. This package includes a Traxxas TQ 2.4GHz radio system with Traxxas Link, as well as the awesome VXL-6S marine ESC and 540XL brushless motor, with two 7-Cell Power Cell NiMH batteries! It’s the kind of boat you would expect from Traxxas: Extreme brushless power, ballistic speed, and a huge waterfall of roost that rains down long after the boat speeds by. The howling fury of 50+ mph across the water on optional 6S LiPo power will make even the most insatiable, power-hungry enthusiast jump up and take notice. Everything about Spartan means business: the super-rigid, 36-inch deep-V hull; smooth, cable drive efficiency: innovative water cooling system; and precision aluminum and stainless steel drive controls. The clean, modern hull design is built up in layers for maximum rigidity where it matters most; the transom and ride pad. The integrated battery trays securely hold a variety of battery configurations—from the included 7-cell Power Cell NiMH packs to 3S LiPos. Ride trim is easily adjusted by positioning the packs fore and aft using the convenient hook and loop straps that secure the batteries. The optimized rudder configuration carves amazing full-throttle turns. No detail was overlooked in our mission to engineer a boat that offers the power, speed, convenience, and fun that Traxxas’ award-winning cars and trucks are known for. Prepare yourself for the ultimate R/C boating power trip, only from Traxxas.
Extreme Performance, Powered By Castle™
Extreme brushless horsepower delivers the muscle you want with the reliability you expect from Traxxas. 30+ out of the box on the included 7-cell battery packs is just the start. The new VXL-6s electronic speed control is built for true 6s LiPo power. Engineered by Castle, the leader in high-power brushless performance, the on-board low voltage detection helps you maintain your batteries. The extra voltage and current maximizes the potential of the 540XL motor for extreme 50+mph speed. The rebuildable, sensorless 540XL motor is designed for high-rpm performance and reliability with ultra high-temperature sintered Neodymium magnets, a precision-balanced rotor, and efficient, high-speed ball bearings. Cooling water is routed through the innovative speed control case and then into a unique sealed motor jacket that allows cooling water to flow directly against the motor for maximum possible heat transfer. The Spartan keeps its cool, run after run, for trouble-free all-day fun.
Spartan is fully assembled with a TQ 2.4GHz radio system, 6S brushless power system, applied graphics, and detailed instructions. Two Traxxas Power Cell 7-cell NiMH batteries are also included. Designed specifically for the high-power needs of brushless systems, the potent Power Cell packs feature heavy-duty construction, 12-gauge wires and Traxxas’ High-Current Connectors for efficient power transfer, run after run. Traxxas backs their products with industry leading support that is second to none. A staff of skilled representatives is on-hand to answer your questions via phone, website, or e-mail. Unmatched parts support allows Spartan to be serviced with parts and support from thousands of hobby dealers worldwide. Your investment is also protected by the Traxxas Lifetime Electronics Warranty.
