    It said 7.845 and rising. It started at low 7V then rose. It would probably get up to 8.35V. It kept going up but I took it off. TCS Capactiy was 42%.

    Also, It keeps glitching. Like twitching. I'm thinking of just getting a new radio for god's sake! Even with the LiPos it glitches like it did before.

    And Lipos are AMAZING. SOOOO MUCCCHHHHH POOOWWWEEERRRRRRR!!!!!!

    yeah moose, i'd have to agree. "uh, how?" lol, i smacked a rock about the size of my erevo at full speed on 14cells [stock motor/esc/gear setup] and it did two end-over-ends and landed on its wheels, the only thing broke a was a small piece off the front skidplate from the impact. difabio, man, you gotta be trying to break this thing or something hahaha

    What the 700-HO? Yes, I love mine!

    I broke it just from everyday driving. It was cold out so it makes part brittle.

    The good codes they had expired around the first of the year. The new ones aren't as good, but every bit helps I guess. These expire on February 28 and I don't think you have to be a member to use them.

    Huh? What are you talking about?
    A. 90% of its 1C rating? 90% total mah capacity? 90% usable mah capacity?
    B. For running? For storage? What batteries?
    C. Do you even have the right thread? There was a little talk of batteries here, but nothing to which this is a clear reference.
