The boats got some serious issues with dropping drive lines. Gone through 2 of them now in 1/2hr of use. The collets on the motors are terrible and don't hold any of the driveline in place for long at all. I'm sure it's a good performing boat if you can keep it together. I bought a Traxxas Spartan after so much down time with the Venom and the Traxxas does circles around the Segad all day long.
