    4000mah is on the low-ish side, but inexpensive. I'd go for a 5000mah at least. Here is a rundown on batteries I posted in another thread:

    Like Collector said, hobby grade RCs don't come with cameras. I have seen some toy-grade camera cars in catalogs, tho. Just google "RC camera car" and you might get some hits for such a thing. ...

    The drive train in the smaller ones isn't so much the issue. It's the fact that they can achieve speeds comparable to the bigger ones, but the parts are smaller, so they can't take the impacts as...

    Oh heck yeah, Axial is a fairly new, and successful, brand. And the Yeti is hugely popular. So not only is Axial going to be making parts, so are all the after market guys.

    O God, yes! Replace Traxxas suspension arms with ones made by RPM. MUCH tougher.

    Also, stock "bumpers" on most RCs are only cosmetic. They do little to actually protect the car. Go look at...

    It could be that the Lipo Low-Voltage Cut-off (LVC) is enabled in the ESC. That's so a Lipo won't get discharged below 3.0V per cell. If you're running NiMhs, disable the LVC.

    If you have a hard time finding parts state-side, you might try GeeFly Hobby. They're in Taiwan, but that's where HoBao is. If they still make parts for that car, GeeFly should have them.

    My New Favorite Charger
