The Traxxas Spartan High Performance Race Boat is the kind of boat you 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 optional 6S LiPo power will make even the most insatiable, power-hungry enthusiasts jump up and take notice.
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 6-cell Power Cell NiMH packs to 3S LiPo. 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 TQi 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 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.

Traxxas Spartan High Performance Race Boat RTR (Rock n Roll)
One of the best boats on the market. I have messed around with several RC boats from various brands and The Spartan seems to outshine them all. It is not the fastest or best handling boat out there, but for the money it is hard to beat the brutal 6S powered beast. This boat is easy to use and easy to maintain. Hassle free handling it turns on a dime when on plane. Always run on 6S with no issues. Certainly would not want the boat any faster it is violent at top speed. The Rock N Roll Hull design looks great in the water. Super happy with my Spartan.
