    So 6S is insane

    I took my Notorious out for quick maiden run tonight . . . crazy! I've never driven anything over 3S, and that is a not overly fast 6x6. I learned there is a fine line between doing a wheelie and completely launching the Notorious onto it's back. On an unrelated note, the real-steel effect...

    ISDT Q6 finally set up

    I wanted this to end up as a travel charger for our ridiculous amount of camping trips we do every year. I think it turned out pretty decent. I used a parts bin from work (I hope they don't miss it) and vented for the power supply. It packs up nice, and I can use it for a few batteries in...

    Do LiPo's really blow up that much?

    I've been out of the hobby for 20 or so years. I'm coming back and a lot has changed. The articles I've read about LiPo's makes them sound like grenades ready to go at any moment.

    How to store a LiPo battery

    What type of cases do you use??? I saw one that holds a few batteries. Then thought if one went. There goes all your batteries. Also do these things spontaneously go or just during charging and use? If they're in storage voltage, is there a worry???

    Gearing setup for 4s

    Before I start trying gears, this 4s vs 6s is new to me. So, if the stock 12 tooth is good starting point for 6s, then what would be the same good starting point for 4s batteries? Same pinion (seemed slow compared to my 8th scale buggy with 1900 kV motor), or the larger 14 tooth?

    Granite 4x4 3s BLK 1st upgrades

    1st upgrades....Loki aluminum locking wheel nuts (since one disappeared) and I added a Castle motor fan to the existing Arrma heat sink. Figured it was better adding it to the giant heat sink than to remove it and strap it right to the motor.
