    Either boat runs good. The only time cavitation has been a problem with either was when the stock prop was either damaged or needed sharpening. Other than the motor that you mentioned, the other mod I would recommend would be to get a prop shaft for a SW26 so that then you can use different 1/8" props. This one mod will make a great difference. The stock battery is good, but a 1000-1200mah lipo makes it even better.

    ji thanks it just seems to be a common complaint with the cat im goin the vee as i can get it local without payin a fair bit in postage.

    I probably will upgrade to that later but ill wear out the stock stuff first lol.

    Same with the esc i was thinking of putting the traxxas esc cooling kit on the stock esc unless there was a better way but eventually i would go brushless as its heaps better and the marine brushless escs are already watercooled

    I have both, converted both to brushless and 3C Lipos, Cat way better, Mini V cannot get it stable at speeds, too much porpoising.
