Atomik RC officially launches their new website and social media sites, and they have also released their first RC vehicle, the new A.R.C 58″ RTR electric boat. Read the press release below for all the details:

Atomik RC proudly announces the release of the Atomik Racing Catamaran (A.R.C ). This 58” RTR Electric boat is the first large-scale factory electric that out performs it’s gas counterparts. Not to mention, no smelly gas or tedious engine tuning.

After numerous requests for an electric version of our large gas boats, the Atomik design team pulled out all the stops with a whopping 2000 watts of brushless electric power out of the stock 1100Kv outrunner mounted in a water-cooled CNC aluminum motor mount. All that power is controlled with a robust 120A water-cooled ESC for a 40+ mph out of the box top speed.

The hand-laid fiberglass hull features full color Atomik racing color scheme protected by a durable gel coat, pre-installed laser cut radio box and battery tray system, which will accompany a single 6S (22.2V) LiPO battery, but is also expandable for up to a 12S configuration.

    Beautfull boat. For this size craft I would have preferred a twin-drive set-up to reduce amp draw, but i am sure this thing would haul ass! First upgrade would be a 200amp marine ESC with 2x 4S lipos for 29.6V to the 1100kv motor…
