I know some one who fitted a 3600k.v b/l  on lipo 3s to one. Went well  :-))but NOT in turns {:-{ very unstable   @ warp speed  (To Narrow) :(( But a 700bb 8.4v on 14 cells will wake it up a bit :-)) But a good high amp E.S.C (60amp) upwards is a MUST.

This one?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/RC-Spurt-Speed-Boat-With-Rudder-Fast-Speed-Racing-Boat_W0QQitemZ390165912666QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_ToysGames_RadioControlled_JN?hash=item5ad7b35c5a

The hulls are quite light weight..... very thin & flimsy.
These radios are of dubious quality and will need replacing if hotting up.
The radio probably isn't proportional and range.
The main battery maybe of quite low capcity (Ah).
