    There is a lot of information available about Lipo batteries. I have owned a few hundred of them and never had a single issue. I have had two NiMH batteries pop open during charging. In my opinion...

    It might be that you already named the cause of the problem: VXL and NiMH. Since the amount of necessary current is quite large at acceleration, the NiMH batteries probably struggle to deliver that...

    I never heard a bad thing about the Savox. Never had one myself, tho I think you made a good choice. Most important advantage is that it's waterproof. Hope your servo problems are gone from now on.

    Very important: A lipo should not get uncomfortably warm. If that is the case, it is not fit for it's job.

    C rating can simply never be too high, it tells you something about the ability of the battery. You have to multiply it with the capacity of the battery to get the maximum current that it can...
