    Absolutly with our doubt I believe Castle produces a much better ESC than EZ Run

    With batteries as mentioned there are only so many factories but the same factory can produce cells with a wide range of quality. They build cells to meet the requirments of their customers so the same factory can turn out budget low quality cells as well has top end high quality cells.

    cool story.
    but isn't it cheaper to just buy a cheap lipos, reassemble them and then sell for 4x the price?

    i guess we'll never know the true.
    because it always will be out there (c) x-files

    I can see this thread going down hill fast and it really has nothing to do with Traxxas.
