    E Revo Battery Overheating!!

    I purchased a 1/16 brushed e revo yesterday and ive noticed the battery that came in the box (1200mA) was really hot after i had finished my run. Is this normal? and would a better battery help? im not ready to invest in a lipo yet, just the nimh ones for now. If there is another way to fix it, it would be great to know

    And also is there a place to buy pre painted bodies? or you have to paint em all yourself?

    Yes its normal. If you bash around real hard the battery will work hard so its normal if its hot. But lett it cool down before you recharge it again

    A lipo won't get hot under normal usage, so its a worthy upgrade. Also I'm not sure of any pre-painted ones, but Traxxas sells "Prographix" bodies that come with printed designs, and only requires the base color.
