    Blackjack and geico is the same boat.
    It do not have the bounce issue like the v2.
    V3 hull its mutch more stabile. Have run mutch on 6s and it have never blow over.
    You must adjust your cog and if you get your prop sharp and balanced it would run better, less bounce and better handling. V2 needs blueprinting but v3 have mutch flatter sponsons so you dont need to do that.

    How can you tell if the boat is a V3? iIam thinking you cant tell by just looking at the box itself.

    I just purchased a new Miss Geico V3 and would like to know what prop should I run thinking of a x440/3 but heard I would have to reset the timing on the ESC also not sure about the water line going to the top of the motor first. motor is a Dynamite 2000kv and plan on running on 6s

    Thought my last reply was pretty spot on, seeing as I ran that exact same boat/setup all summer.
