This is the Traxxas Spartan High Performance RTR Race Boat, with an included Traxxas Link Wireless Module Compatible TQi 2.4GHz radio system, two 3S 11.1V 5000mAh LiPo battery packs and two LiPo balance chargers.

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 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.

Taxxas Link Wireless Module Compatible
The TQi's most important feature may already be in your pocket. The TQi can be equipped with an Traxxas Link Wireless Module (TRA6511, sold separately) that turns your iPad iPhone or iPod touch® (sold separately) into a powerful tuning tool for your Traxxas model. The full-color display combines with the free Traxxas Link™ App (on the App Store) to deliver an intuitive, high-definition, full-color graphical user interface that unlocks the mysteries of optimizing your radio system for ultimate vehicle control. Traxxas Link also opens the door to telemetry capability when you add optional sensors to your model.

Traxxas Spartan High Performance RTR Race Boat w/TQi 2.4GHz, 2 Batteries & Chargers
This boat will burn up if you run 6s stock on it.
It needs a dual rudder, water outlet and aluminum jacket to run cool and not die.
It's also plastic.
Don' get me wrong if you get it setup properly it's fun.
Traxxas has horrible warranty service and customer support. Nothing like Horizon Hobby or Amain Hobbies. We are talking about night and day.

If you are going to buy a boat I understand this looks cool and everything but you are simply going to be buying it for that factor until you add all the extra's. +$100.00 if you want it to look nice or +$50.00 if you dont care what goes on it

Do yourself a favor and choose a Proboat. If something happens Horizon will help you no question to ask. Traxxas will charge you again. I have had this boat and all other proboats and I will never choose a spartan again after having fiberglass and true 6 pole system.

You have been warned!)
