    A LCG rig has the same ground clearance as a HCG rig at the diff skids, so really you are just talking about a little bit more surface that is lower. Does it make a difference, not really, and is...

    Yes and no.

    If it were me, I would cut off that Tamiya plug, and put a male JST plug on it (the red plugs), that would make for a clean installation. Another option is to get a Molex (Tamiya) to...

    As long as you are running an XL5 with an external ESC or an ESC like the HW1080 you'll be fine. That servo has plenty of torque at 6VDC, but its stall amperage is 2.55A, which will fry the XL5's...

    The pinion is a part easily and inexpensively replaced. Next time use some Loc-Tite, a good hex driver, and let it cure over night, and you'll be good to go.

    The only masks I know of are on the unpainted body. You could make your own very easily, taking some time to get it right. When I make masks I use a thin piece of paper,...

    Taking this back the other way, it might be a 3VDC light bar. If it flickered once, then no longer comes on it is likely fried.

    If the wheel is running fairly true, then you should just have to squish the foam around inside the tire to get it so it is straighter on the wheel.

    When you look at the difference between NiMH and lipo, it almost seems apples-to-apples, its the number of cells x voltage. So, it would seem like a 7-cell NiMH should be...

    That is perfectly doable. You should use packs with the same amperage and c-rating. You just wire them up in series and you'll get 6S voltage.
