Hi folks

Just bought a little boat for a mess around, an to have at the COMEBACK BASH in the pond GOOD

It was only cheap from eBay

Its a Ripmax, INTERCEPTER 650 RTR




Just wanting to know if people have any advice, on how to make it faster,an better GOOD

Currently its totally stock

Has a 540 can motor (27t i think)
SEA ROVER 15A esc
1600 maH nicad 6cell battery


It goes an works ........... but man its SLOW rofl laugh

I have some bigger 6 cell Nimah batterys (3300/3600)
But need/want to do this on the cheap, as its just for a bit of fun GOOD

So doubt very much it will be getting big brushless motors, but that may be the case ;)

Any advice welcomed GOOD

I'd just put a brushed setup from a car in there, won't cost too much and a bit of sillicone to waterproof it shouldn't be too hard.

Yup, best way :D Seeing yours and Iains has made me want to get a little something to play with, bidding on a little 400 motor powered race boat which I'll do a bit of redesigning to if I get it.
