    I see your point, but fundamentally I have to disagree with your premise.

    The simplicity of the Traxxas system is that balancing and charging are all taken care of by the charger, and the user...

    That happens from time to time.

    Back in the day of the comp crawler the AX10 had been out for two years or so, and a few of us were dabbling with making the TVP platform into scale rigs. About a...

    No problem.

    Recommend getting Common Sense LEDs (Amazon), they come pre-wired with the resistor and they will handle up to 12VDC.

    That will work. Just make sure the LEDs are rated for 6VDC, and make sure they all have a 100 ohm resistor in series.

    As much as I am a Traxxas fan, I have never used their batteries or chargers, nor do I plan to. I think they are a little expensive for what they are. The up-side, is that the whole mess is basically...

    What ESC are you running?

    A typical Traxxas ESC sends 6VDC to the receiver, and should be able to power four LEDs easily. With that, I am assuming a stock setup with no modifications.

    I also run the Mamba-X in my Bomber, it as FWS, a monster winch, and lights. The hole mess operates off of the internal BEC with no issues (other than lousy driving).

    With an internal BEC that has selectable voltage and 8 amps, there is no need to run an external BEC with the Mamba-X. Running Mambas on my TRX4 and TRX6 has made me spoiled.

    Excellent combo...

    Of course you'll need to do the normal waterproofing, I use dielectric grease on all of the sensor connections.
