don't run 3s...seen a video of someone doing it for 3 min they probably only got 3 min. But 2s is cool. don't run the 2s more then 15ish min. Youll be in overheat range around 15 min.

While I was running tonight i lost connection with the truck and it stopped and it almost took off by itself.... What may have caused this to happen?

A broken servo can cause an electical glitch too and cause the esc and reciever to act strange.
Kinda like a reverse feed...extra unsed energy sent back to the esc and reciever will make the car do werid things

how much faster would it go if I get the 2s lipo and brushless motor? Sorry don't mean to hijack the thread. Still a newbie :)

Not a prob I'm sorts new also!...... Upgrading to brushless and lipo adds a good deal of speed and power! I raced an ATV yesterday of course he won in the long run but he said I was hitting 55 mph and I believe I could go a little faster!

Hi

Is it the ESC or the receiver that is not working.

Hi

Is this the first time you used a lipo with it, if it is you might want to try using the NiMh battery if you have not already done that to see if you get any response out of it. If you still don't get any response out of it you probably have a fried ESC, if it is contact Arrma about the warranty exchange.
