New to R/C Boats- Bought a Traxxas Villian EX

Hi everyone,

Good to find a Canadian website. I'm looking to hear about different mods and ideas to improve the EX. I just bought it online, and will not even be home to use it until the end of August but I'm looking to get collecting ideas.

I have looked into R/C Universe, and while a good site it's huge and not always reflected in availability of parts etc.

Thats a fun first boat I have one myself, what I would suggest is to make sure you have 3000MAH battery packs for it.

First mod to do is to get the water cooling kit it really helps keep the motors cool.

Second one is the one I havent done yet and that is the upgraded shafts and propellers, this will give you a more rigid drive line and metal props.

At that point I would increase the cell count by 1 on each pack (the ESC can still handle that). That will get you to over 25MPH close to 30MPH.

The stock boat will run approx. 22MPH lots of fun.
