    Do you transport to track / park with Lipo batteries plugged in?

    Or do you wait right before you are ready to turn the Truck on? thanks

    Sometimes I plug them in before, sometimes I don't. It really doesn't matter as long as your truck has an on/off switch. Just don't leave the battery plugged in for extended periods of time without use (like more than 1 day).
    Who needs coffee when you have a 10KV+ capacitor?

    I only have the batteries in the truck plugged in if its on and running. I've read keeping the battery plugged in for a long period even with the esc off can drain the battery, so its a good habbit to unplug when you turn off the esc.

    I only plug mine in when I'm driving the truck. I don't usually even have it in the battery compartment until I'm ready to drive.

    If it ain't broke, you're not trying!
