    Yes. Running in grass is going to significantly increase the load and thus your current draw. Tamiya connectors have relatively high resistance.

    Too much current for Tamiya connectors. Cut them off and use a connector capable of higher amp draw like TRX connectors or EC5 connectors.

    Is there any reason to prefer multiple capacitors wired in parallel vs. a single larger capacitor with equivalent capacitance (all other values equal)?

    Castle states SV2 + 1406 6900kv = can only run 2s Lipo and that you shouldn't run stock gearing with the 6900 or 7700. If you ran 3s that would explain the burn out.

    I think Castle should clarify...

    Castle told me the same thing about 30c minimum and I respectfully disagree. My Sidewinder and 3800 motor run very well on 25c Lipo. I frequently run 20c Lipo and it is fine, but on NiMH it runs...
