After meeting with Traxxas at RCX 2016 in California (http://bit.ly/2dwv06O), we were so lucky to have these boats sent to us to rip around on the pond, out back of the 5th scale race track! But, before we can do that.. we have to get them out of the box. Instead of doing that on our own we though we could roll camera’s and capture the experience for you. Disclosure: we were not paid to do this film, but rather wanted to have a closer look at these rigs. Traxxas sent us batteries and parts to use with these boats.
**Note – in the film, I said this boat was 41″ long, but I now believe it to be 40″ long.
** Another NOTE! I just noticed I said the last boats we unboxed was the Rockstar – what I meant was “LONG BOATS”!
Now, instead of me re-writing an entire description of this boat – here is some information from the http://www.Traxxas.com website about the M41
“The Traxxas M41 gets its unique, aggressive appearance thanks to its use of a catamaran hull design. This hull design offers more than a different visual presentation; the catamaran offers a wider stance on the water for increased stability and less hydrodynamic resistance. This also lets the M41 use less energy to propel itself across the water making it incredibly fast. The M41 gets on plane almost immediately, letting you get to the fun faster—to the tune of 50+ mph on 6S LiPo power.
Big Boat, Big Fun
At just over 40 inches (1 meter) long, the M41 has a commanding presence just floating in the water. Crack open the throttle and the fun begins! The M41’s size and design give it the versatility to work well in a wide range of conditions. The M41 is stable and easy to control whether blasting across the waves in a big lake, cruising past the shoreline, or testing it’s 50mph top speed on a smooth pond.
Rigid Internal Structure
A unique feature of the M41 is its rigid internal structure with removeable electronics tray and motor mount. The VXL-6s electronic speed control, waterproof receiver box, and powerful 2056 high-torque steering servo are all bolted securely to the tray. The motor is attached independently to a motor mount that increases the rigidity of the hull. In just a few quick minutes, the electronics can be removed for maintenance. The internal structure includes an integrated reinforced transom to provide a solid mounting surface for the control and drive systems.
DCB M41 Detailed Cockpit
Traxxas faithfully reproduced the M41’s artfully sculpted cockpit with an acute attention to detail, from the gauges and speakers to the steering wheel and seats. The detailed cockpit flows with the rest of the boat to become a complete work of high-performance art.
The M41 is equipped with a surface-piercing prop that has been optimized to get the hull on plane as quickly as possible without cavitation. The prop is made of a molded composite construction that is lightweight and tough, with no balancing or sharpening needed.
High-Strength Aluminum Hardware
For efficient power transfer and razor-sharp handling, the M41 is equipped with rigid drive hardware and a flex-free transom. These components allow you to experience every ounce of extreme brushless horsepower and performance. The rudder, rudder support, and drive strut are extruded and machined from rugged 6000-series aluminum alloy for maximum strength. The pieces are polished and anodized a vivid blue. The rudder also incorporates a pickup that feeds water through the cooling system.
Stainless-Steel Trim Tabs
The M41’s dual trim tabs further tune its high-speed performance. The trim tabs are precision die-cut and made of bent form stainless steel to resist corrosion. They help keep the M41 stable during high speed runs.
