I am on the fence. I run the traxxas 9.6 nimh now but am considering lipo. I have done a TON of research and read enough about maintenance and mostly FIRE I don't know if I want to go there. Don't get me wrong I know there are a ton of (no problem) lipos in use but with all the talk of puffing and fire I am having my doubts if they are for me. I have read informative threads that claim a crash could make a lipo puff or catch on fire and I do that a lot.
