    If you measure the voltage on a 2 s at the balance plug on the red and black leads you get 16 volts i dont have a 3s here to measure but would guess it to be around 23 volts if you measure the red and white you get 7 It would be my guess why you toasted it

    You do want to think about where you mount your remote. Generally, you will need to be able to control the winch while operating your rig, which means putting it in a spot where you can pay in and out on the winch and still be able to steer and use the throttle.

    A 2s definitely won't read 16 volts. Fully charged or otherwise.

    I have a cell checker I used to run all the time on an esc with no lvc. It read off the balance taps.

    On top of the Traxxas Trasmitter, right on top front of the 'handle' maybe a good spot? Control the remote (Velcro'ed on) with steering hand/fingers?

    It'd be nice if we could tap into the cruise control toggle for winch. It would look so nice and clean, and I think the cruise control thing is a little gimmicky. How is that different from throttle trim?
