Thanks... again. Lol, he's probably fine with it. I am for sure. But please, tell me how your experience is. I may have had a bad batch with the ones that puffed. Probably not going to buy any more...

Not meaning to bump or go off topic, but I agree with you 100%. I was a Venom driver for a while so I couldn't complain, but now that I'm not, those Uni Plugs are terrible. That, and I have had few...

I'd go with the Hyper MT. Like you said, Hobao has great quality vehicles. It really does suck that they had a falling-out and had to stop manufacturing for a while.

Welcome to RCU! For metal parts, I don't see any listed on A Main or Hobbytown's site. Any Conquest parts should fit on it, minus the obvious (arms, dogbones, tie rods.)

I don't think you will...

What FlyinWalenda said is absolutely true. Up to a point in your driving skill, a stock Slash or something like that will be fine. However, once you hit that point and your car doesn't want to do...

OH MY! Flying XMaxx to the computer is not a great idea. A similar thing happened to me, but not in my LHS. I was bench testing my Mini E Revo after a diff rebuild and had it on a block of wood. I...

For sure go with the TT02. It'll teach you the inner workings of an RC car, which is something RTRs cannot do as easily.

Is the axle well screwed into the y bar coming down from the chassis? If so, try loosening it a little, the drive shaft angle might be a bit extreme.

I'd go with the Talion, they look stout and ARRMA parts are everywhere, while according to my LHS, HPI is having part distribution problems.

I'd say Novak, but that really isn't an option anymore. It all depends on your budget. For low, go with a Hobbywing XERUN 13.5 combo, and for higher, a Reedy Sonic 13.5 combo would be great.

Could just be a bar loosened itself from its welding and shorted another bar? I have also seen packs with bars that weren't even welded before, which was quite odd. I have never had a NiCd problem...
