    It’s very common with brand new revos for the slipper clutch to loosen up during the break in process. In your case it probably got too loose and one of the slipper pads fell out. You’ll need to get...

    Yep agree on not using the pins when setting the mesh for the 46t spur. It’s too loose. Remove the pins and set the mesh the old fashioned way.

    I'm not a fan of the parallel charging boards. You can get a 6 lead parallel cable along with a 6 lead balance cable and not have to fight with the wires being so short. Most are rated for 40amps.

    You can get a little more run time by swapping the stock spur for the smaller 46t spur that's included with the truck. Just be sure to set the back lash by hand - not with the pins.

    I've seen a few guys at the track running 5s truggies. They will connect (in series) a 2s and a 3s pack of the same capacity and C rating to get 5s and it works just fine. Don't do this in parallel....

    The new tank is 150cc. I only had to redrill one of the holes in the battery housing to mount it. Other than that - it was a direct swap. It was maybe $14 with shipping on ebay.
