This is the Traxxas Spartan Brushless Electric Ready-to-Race Boat with Traxxas Stability Management and TQi 2.4GHz Radio System (Traxxas Bluetooth Link Module Compatible - Module sold separately). This boat comes fully assembled, Ready-To-Race, with the Velineon 540XL Brushless Motor, VXL-6s Marine ESC, and factory-applied graphics. The batteries and charger are not included and must be purchased separately.
Extreme Power and Speed
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 optional 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 6-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 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 our 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 Stability Management Micro Receiver with Fail-Safe Security
Stability Management (TSM) makes it possible to experience all the
extreme power, speed, and acceleration that was engineered into Traxxas
models by making it much easier to control the vehicle on any water
condition. Punch it off the line and TSM goes to work sensing the
boats’s direction and making steering corrections to provide
straight-ahead full-throttle acceleration without fishtailing, spinouts,
and loss of control. TSM also works during cornering, first making
intuitive corrections to maintain the vehicle’s line, then hammer the
throttle earlier in the turn for much faster exit speeds. Traxxas TSM
gives all the benefits modern electronic stabilization has to offer
without intruding on driving fun or introducing unexpected side effects
that can be found on other systems such as drastically reduced turning
radius, assistance that times out (quits), throttle restrictions, and an
overall disconnected driving feel. Traxxas engineers developed superior
tuning algorithms that run on high-speed, precision electronic
components to create a system that works invisibly, in the background,
without ever limiting throttle. TSM can be fine tuned (or turned off)
for different surfaces by simply adjusting the multi-function knob on
the TQi transmitter, or by adjusting the slider in the Traxxas Link app.
The result is driving faster, with more ease, and having more fun. In
fact, the driver may not even realize how much TSM is helping until it
is turned off and their driving skills are tested without it! Everything
is waterproof and Traxxas-tough as you’d expect. This is performance on
a whole new level!

The World's Most Advanced Ready-To-Race Radio System
Spartan is equipped with the world's most advanced Ready-To-Race radio system. The all-new Traxxas TQi arrives with a full complement of tuning features and offers the unbeatable convenience of "no channels, no crystals" 2.4GHz technology - but that's just the beginning. Automatic model recognition instantly recalls your settings for up to 30 Traxxas Link-enabled models. Just switch on and drive, no naming or "model memory" settings required. Power up the transmitter and the model you want to drive, and the settings for that model are dialed in immediately! The new TQi 2.4GHz transmitter is fully adjustable: steering and throttle end points can be set precisely, and the Multi-Function knob can be programmed to control Steering Sensitivity (Expo), Throttle Sensitivity (Expo), Steering Percentage (Dual Rate), Braking Percentage (Dual Rate), or Throttle Trim. TQi's ergonomic case design provides all-day driving comfort, and the unique internal antenna contributes to its sleek, modern look.
Traxxas Link Wireless Module Compatible
The TQi's most important new feature may already be in your pocket. The TQi can be equipped with a Traxxas Link Wireless Module #6511 (sold separately) that turns your Android, 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 Google Play and 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.
Spartan's hatch is secured by a single body clip and removes in seconds for fast and easy access to the hull interior. No sealing tape is required, and a specially designed drip rail in the hull channels away any water that washes over the hatch.
Spartan's bold graphics make it the most stunning boat on the pond, with a custom look even pro painters can't match. No painting or decaling is required; all the graphics are pre-applied to get Spartan out of the box and into the water with speed and style.

Spartan's hull is further strengthened by its integrated battery trays, which securely hold a variety of battery configurations - from the included 7-cell Power Cell NiMH packs to 3S LiPos. The roomy trays allow the hull to be trimmed by positioning the packs fore and aft, and convenient hook and loop straps secure the batteries.
