    Probably the easiest way to go would be a single Titan 775 from the Summit. It will plug right into the EVX2 (that is what the Summit uses, too.) The torque of one 775 is better than two of the 550s,...

    I did a conversion of a Revo 3.3 to electric, and after all I went through, I would say the best way to convert from nitro to electric is to sell the nitro, and buy an electric.

    One other thing to check is the one way bearing. If it is locked up, it will never disengage the starter motor, and it will act like the engine isn't even trying to start. It's trying, it just can't.

    It can only be set to 'auto' or to a speciffic number of cells without the castle link. This sets itself to 3.0v per cell, which is a bit lower than most people are comfortable with. I really...

    You could also try heavier weight oil in the rear shocks. If you hit a bump, and the rear of the truck smacks the ground, it will pole vault over forward. Heavier weight oil can definately help.

    Lipos don't self discharge very much. It won't hurt it to charge it no matter if is discharged or not, but even after sitting a week you probably won't put much into it.

    That's OK. The 1/16 is a great little car, too. I've been running mine on just 2s, and it will do full backflips. Top speed on 3s with the Traxxas recommended gearing is a little over 50. . .

    The price on these is very reasonable. They are the biggest batteries that fit the eRevo battery boxes, and they FILL it, so they are also about the heaviest batteries that fit.

    The feeling I get concerning the MMM ESC failures is that about 1/2 are caused by inadequate batteries, and the other 1/2 are caused by inadequate filter capacitors as sfr4x4 mentioned.
