    On the other hand, it makes you wonder why they went to the 1200XL motor (1275KV) on the newer 8S versions instead of sticking with the 1600XL motor. I still say the 1600XL motor is a 6S version...

    That is definitely better than having to replace the sensor!

    Keep those batteries at indoor room temperatures unless the garage can be heated to stay about 65F~75F or so.

    Enjoy the truck!

    I hear you Gripdog!

    I never meant to imply that any answer here was insufficient to any extent. I have a tendency to overstate why I believe parts are breaking on this truck as a venting measure...

    By any chance did you notice if the receiver box light was flashing red as well? The reason I ask, is because the motor temperature sensor can go bad and reduce throttle to 50% as well. It is some...

    Thank you!

    It's Official!

    The ARRMA Safe D-5 Pinion will fit the stock 1200XL Velineon motor with a slight extension of the flat spot on the motor shaft.

    As I mentioned before, I really liked your list and what you planned for the truck.

    It is curious though, as I was looking over the WFO site and did not see MOD1 gears but rather MOD1.5 gears.
