    It highly depends what you expect. First of all buying 5 star ratings is well known strategy to get people to buy stuff and be placed higher in search. Then many people are giving a rating close...

    No control of current flow, no control of each cell, pretty high discharge rate. This is a way to shorten a live of your expensive battery and even risk accidents during discharging.

    First of all the damage to the mailbox is nothing serious. No people were harmed and that's most important!

    In this case I would do it during daytime. Turn it off during night and continue next day. There is no harm to leave it unbalanced as long as you don't use it.

    It highly depends on your use case. I'm using a storage mode to store my LiPos for a season where I'm not driving. This happens once maybe twice a year. It doesn't really matter to me if it takes...

    Me and my son have a lot of fun with a MERV. I like the 1/16 scale which can be also used indoors.
    But I think with both platforms MAXX and Revo you can't go wrong.

    Thanks for quick suggestions. The acetone bath will most likely dissolve the original plastic rims. I think I will leave it then for the time being.
    Are there any nice replacement Tires/Wheels which...

    Thanks, #7033x are already in my wish list. Traxxas shop does not have it in stock, otherwise they would be on the way, too.

    Hello,

    I got my MERV last week and one of the tires wobble a lot. Wheel looks good and the suspension, too. Looks to me like the wheel was not glued properly.
    My question is how practical is it...

    Thanks for the warm welcome.
    Yes, LiPo batteries are on the way, too. Brushless and 3s for such a small car sounds like an overkill to me as of now. But let's see what the future will bring.

    In general it's not advised to run LiPo batteries in parallel. Even if you bought two from the same batch and with the same rating, they will still age different. So the ESC will not see if any cell...
