    IMO, spend the extra cash and go with lipo for sure. If your getting a VXL, that brushless motor will be screaming for lipo power. Its not a bad idea to start out with 2 cell to get used to your...

    I used the dog bone style MIP drive shafts and they did pop out a lot. It was very annoying. Id like to try the xduty MIPs. They look like they would work well but are kinda pricey.

    I've ran a few sets of Dirt Hawgs, both 2.2 and 2.8's. IMO, they suck. They get decent traction but from my experience, they don't last long at all. I have ripped up at least 3 pairs of Dirt Hawgs...
