    Yes my motor gets very warm after a full bashing session on 4s. I do run monster-truck tires though, which changes the equation a bit.

    That's impossible to answer as not all batteries are the same (even if they have the same rating), and it will depend heavily on how you drive. You should get decent runtime.

    The Hoss does have a very powerful motor, and that is part of the reason why it has a higher skill level rating. The key is, you have to respect that power and actually have some throttle control. ...

    I don't think I've ever had a bearing actually break before. I consider them to be End-Of-Life when they start getting scratchy or no longer spin freely. They could probably be used even longer,...

    You really don't need MIP if you are just using the stock motor. But if you do go that route, you could drop a couple teeth on the pinion and use 3s exclusively.

    If anything, I'd say handling is improved. The added weight is low to the ground, and close to the corners of the truck which is actually a very good thing in terms of stability and handling. ...

    Shoe-goo really is the ideal product for this. It's much more than just a band-aid. On the bodies that I've repaired, the repaired area ends up becoming the most durable part of the body.

    No it's not normal.

    Have you tried calibrating the controller? I've seen something like this happen when the throttle resting position is mis-calibrated as slight break/slight reverse.

    1v is too low. At that low of a voltage, a cell WILL suffer damage. You might be able to return the battery to a "usable" state, but it will never be as good as a new pack.

    You have a tremendous amount of control over that with your gearing. If you don't need any extra top-speed compared to what you were already getting on 3s, you might consider gearing down on 4s.

    Especially with a larger 1/8th scale motor, 4s will feel more peppy than 3s. 4s could potentially break things faster, but keep in mind that you, not the battery, still controls how much power goes...
