    Here is a pic, click it for a larger version... it turns out the slipper shaft is not bent, just the drive shaft. Still can't figure out if this is detrimental to my truck.

    I finally made the jump to LiPos, but man it was expensive... and I only got one! It was between 3 *******s vs 1 SPC, and I went with the SPC. They seemed like they had good customer service and...
