    10 minutes in.. WHAMMO!!!

    Took the Pede out today with some new tires on her... Was running down a grassy ditch area and WHAMMO, slammed into the concrete drain, full speed. Loud crack and the wheel was dangling. Took it home, opened it up and had to re-screw the Speed Control. Re-situate the heat synch on the motor and I'm gonna need a new Rear A-Arm. Ordered a set of [RPM 80702 Front/Rear A-Arms Black] from Amazon. Should be here Thr. All in all a 9.00 pocket loss and a day without the Pede. Small price to pay for what I did.. Man, these Pedes are TOUGH. I was suprised it was only an A-Arm.

    Same here. Seems like at least some pins would be bent.

    ^^ hahaha yeah, that 3s Lipo willl untame your Pede. Complete different world from the NiMh battery May I suggest running it off-road for a while before running it on asphalt? Cause when you wreck on the road, things break faster with the 3s

    i had a 3s last year but left it plugged in to the esc and drained it completely. they really wake the truck up... i am fine with 2s for most cases but i think the mmp prefers a little more juice.
