The new Traxxas Blast is engineered to be fast, reliable and easy to drive. It’s our favorite starter boat. The installed water cooling system for the motor helps keeps the Blast cool for longer run times and all day fun. With the waterproof, fully proportional Nautical electronic speed control, waterproof high-torque servo and the patent-pending watertight receiver box, the lakeside fun doesn’t end early because of wet radio gear. The Blast is always ready to make waves with its stable 24-inch deep-V hull, a stylish new hatch, fresh new graphics and powerful water-cooled Stinger 20-turn modified motor. The steerable outdrive with adjustable trim deliver precise control and high-performance tuning options.
We recommend using some tape just to seal the hatch. If the inner mechanisms get wet, it’s not the end of the world, but can lead to corrosion or battery issues overtime, so in the event that water does get in just make sure to drain the boat and dry it after runs. And of course, try not to run it in seawater if you want it to last!
