Typical Apache. All noise, no go, built to run on teeny tiny ponds..

Maybe, but it's not interesting to the wives at all! That means 10 minutes of peace and quiet!

Now that I know I can run one of the cats on snow, I'm putting one on my Christmas list. At least I'll have one boat I can use all year here.

I think I may order one of these. I will just need to practice my driving before it gets here!
Those mini #8s are bad azz! I can prob replace the XRs on my cat with them and they would last longer!

Ask me how I know that.
Actually there is a website in China where you can get really good batteries dirt cheap. They are all I run in my race vehicles. Shipping is a bit slow, but cheap and good. I actually use their Speed Controls now as well. Turns out they are basically one of the manufactures that get "rebranded" by other companies then get a 50% mark up..... If anyone wants suggestions on which of their batteries to get let me know. I can/will take a look at the models I run in my trucks. (I put all that stuff away until the full scale toys are winterized)...
