The World's Fastest Ready-To-Race Boat!
Now Includes Two 11.1-Volt "Power Cell" LiPo Battery Packs and iD Battery Charger!

It's the kind of boat you would expect from Traxxas: Extreme Velineon 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 included 6S LiPo power will make even the most insatiable, power-hungry enthusiasts jump up and take notice. Simply put, Spartan is your boat! Everything about it 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 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 [Spartan (TRA5707L) Removable Power Module] carves amazing full-throttle turns. A high-output 2.4GHz radio system, along with water-cooled and waterproof electronics, keep Spartan going for the trouble-free, all-day running you count on from Traxxas. No detail was overlooked on the Traxxas 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.

Power Cell LiPo Batteries and iD Charger
Designed from the start for high-voltage, high-capacity LiPo packs, Traxxas’ Spartan now includes a pair of genuine Traxxas Power Cell LiPo battery packs—the only LiPos certified to deliver the full performance potential of Traxxas’ most versatile all-terrain truck. Spartan includes two 5000mAh 3-cell Power Cell LiPo battery packs. Spartan arrives with Low Voltage Detection activated to assure maximum battery life and prevent over-discharging.

Charging care is just as important to LiPo life and performance, so a Traxxas EZ-Peak Plus 4-amp charger with iD technology is included to provide a perfect charge every time. Just plug the included iD batteries into the charger and press start. It's that easy. No programming or settings are required. Every time a pack is charged, the cells are charged individually to precisely balance voltage for optimum performance, run time, and cycle life. Experience the ultimate in electric horsepower with the only models designed for LiPo power from the start, and genuine Power Cell LiPo technology on board.
