    Yes, yes and yes, I mean no! Boats now get announced a week before they ship so we are 100% on schedule unless something happens with the shipping vessel.

    Glad I waited!

    Two days ago I just found out that Pro Boat released the Impulse 31 v3 and was totally impressed by the updates! I almost pulled the trigger, until someone mentioned there was more to come in that thread and that Pro Boat could neither confirm or deny if a boat in the 34-38" range was being announced. Well, in "Engineering Land", I know what that means...usually, 99.9% of the time, there is something to wait for!

    Well, again, I am late, however, only by less than 6 hours this time as I received an e-mail from Horizon Hobby this afternoon and had to pull the work vehicle over to check out the two boats that were listed! At the time, the Pro Boat site wasn't even updated, however, at this time it is and this is the prefect size for me personally.

    My only gripe, yup, we are a tough crowd,... apparently,...and would have loved to see a different color scheme, but nothing some custom graphics can't fix! I will say, the blue hull color is good though...

    Excellent job, this really fills the void in the size, component, material usage and overall package value compared to other offerings on the market as I have been doing research for over a year now!

    Excellent, so this could be stripped down to a simple blue hull...hmmmm.....

    Some Key features that usually don't make it to the web.

    2 pins for the canopy.


    5mm, abs plate to reinforce transom. No wood at all in this hull.


    Production boats will have a thumb screw instead of a spring loaded twist lock.

    As of right now, no plans for a BND.

    Drive cable is 4.7mm(.187). No need to upgrade.

    Out testing at Legg lake today and met a gentlemen by the name of Jim Johnson. After chatting it up for 1/2 the day, I disclosed that I worked for HH and busted out the Voracity. I asked him to look at it and tell me his thoughts and I explained that the boat had just been announced today. He was very interested but a bit weary about what I was saying the boat could do. I asked if he wanted to get behind the wheel. His comment was I'm amazed how well this thing handles and how everyting works together so well. I cant believe this is an RTR boat."

    We are just talking openly about the boat and its features.
    That's what forums are for.
    Nobody is crying about it except you crying about us discussing it.
    Don't insult us Pedro.

    The Pre-Order link is now active this morning!

    FYI: Horizon Hobby is running their July 4th free shipping on orders over $99, in addition, if you are resourceful like myself, you can easily find a Horizon Hobby 10% off coupon code valid until 07/20/2015!

    $476.99 shipped...now it will be a waiting game!

    nice job guys! first impression was positive,liked the running gear.video was impressive as well.my only gripe is all these new boats look generic(im talking mono hulls from Proboat,Aquacraft Traxxas).they all have the same characteristcs looks wise,nothing distinct other than the colors and stickers.kind of boring if you ask me. i am impressed with the performance of the boat though,judging by the video,looks like Proboat hit a home run with this one.i'll take the running gear out of this one and throw it in my Fastech that way i'll have the best of both worlds....

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but you plan on taking running gear off the voracity and putting it on a fastech?

    I thought you meant putting the rudder, tabs, fins etc on the fastech.
    Regardless, seems like overkill putting that motor in a fastech. But to each his own man.

    There are so many more affordable 4s options for the fastech, why chose the voracity motor/esc combo?

    Well then, hopefully it works out and you find all that un needed power and torque useful in that small hull.
    I would save my money but to each his own

    it looks that you are the boat guru and your trying so hard to defend your point of view, chill, everyone is has a different point of view. If you feel insulted, well is not my intensions, like you said the forum is to "openly" talk about boats etc.
    Again check yourself bcd everyone does not has the same opinion as you.
    Any ways, Happy 4th to everyone!!!

    Apparently I'm coming off like a know it all somewhere in our discussion about the boat. I'm soooo lost on that one . As far as I knew we were having a nice civil discussion in here for once.

    Hi Rafael:

    What is the transom doubler made out of? Looks like white plastic.
