    I think you can plug in one 3s battery and then put a jumper on the other side (female plug with pos/neg wires connected)
    One ESC battery lead goes to the ESC's BEC. You need to have your single...

    sometimes when you strip a hex screw, you can get lucky and a torx bit of the right size will still grip. I had a 10mm hex bolt on the transmission of my car and it stripped (that's what I get for...

    I can recall some of the engines Ive had making a slight metalish noise when I shut them off. I thought it was the clutch/spur gear stopping suddenly.

    no after run oil isn't a good thing. Did you oil the air filter? Is there a filter on the fuel line? Dirt in either the air or fuel can wear down the engine faster.

    I am 90% sure you will have to replace the radio and receiver, as they are tied together and that radio will not bind to other receivers.
