    Battery exploded!

    Was running the rustler with a Traxxas power cell 3000mah NiMH, when heard loud bang (thought it was gunshot). Car still ran and didn't realize it came from car at first. Heard clicking coming from rear so stopped it to see what was going on. Took the top off and realized one of the cells had exploded. Any idea what the heck would cause this? Does Traxxas cover anything like this, only had it since Christmas.

    Warranty inquiries should be directed to Traxxas Customer Support, not to forum members who can't give you a definite answer. Try calling 888-TRAXXAS.

    Probably your gearing is high, you're forcing too much those batteries. Switch to LiPos.
