    The Neu equipped Veles 29 gets a podium finish placing 3rd in the NAMBA Nats. Not too bad with virtually no setup time. Great Job Ken!

    A couple of runs today with the Veles. One was a 4s 100% all stock (42mph) and a one was a 6s run (72mph) running a different brand battery setup. I will post the details and the videos of the runs on the Veles fast list later if anyone is interested.

    Default A positive for the New Veles.

    On a positive note for the Veles at the Vegas Namba Nationals. Ken Haines was running a Veles equipped with a Neu motor and was having some issues with the handling/turning of the boat and due to the boat being brand new to Ken and all the classes he was running test time was limited. Ken and I chatted and I suggested a few things that would help him to get the boat dialed in better. Ken made those adjustments but he had already added a small skeg to try and help it turn better, but the skeg he added created a straighaway problem that Ken did not indentify until after the 2nd unsuccesful heat. Before heat 3 and 4 the small skeg was removed that was suggested from a fellow racer (like he was using on his Skater) and in the last 2 heats the boat was stellar and the word on the street was that it was the best boat in the field. But unfortunately for Ken those first 2 DNF's allowed him to only to recover to a 3rd place overall finish. Stlll all in all a very good showing for Pro Boats new release! Good job to Rafael on this one and again to Ken for another great finish!

    Thanks for the update. This is very good news with very useful information.

    I think the take away here is that wheel time along with tuning for one's personal driving style is key, and it doesn't need add-ons like, like a skeg, to get the boat to perform well . Great job and big thanks to Ken for taking this box stock boat (other than motor) and throwing it on the water in such a big race. I have no doubt that if he'd have had more time to tune it and get used to the boat he's have taken first.

    No problem Rafael!

    On another note I received the replacement flex cable for the Veles today and Horizon was nice enough to send it totally complete with prop and all! The crimp looks much better than the original as well. Shouldn't be any issues with this one as long as you keep her under 75mph...

    My first flex broke exactly the same as yours. Personally, I wouldn't waist my time with their "Updated" flex. I have one, the crimp is supposed to be better, but it still looks the same as the original. just order this one from OSE. You wont be sorry.

    JAZA NZ Sorry to hear about your problems. I got an upgraded flex cable from Travis (kfxguy on here). He made up some Veles flex cables a few months ago that were some of the best quality ones that I've ever seen. Sometimes I can be a little rough on things but mine has handled everything that I've been able to throw at it with no issues at all. You should contact him to see if he has any more available from the batch he made up. I highly recommend it over the stock shaft. Even though my stock shaft never broke I was always weary of running it very hard. Contact dasboata on here and get you a 1716 prop and you'll never look back. Good luck with it.
