    Got mine last thursday.
    I'm not an expert by far, but as far as old school electric car...the e-Revo 1/16 kicks. I'm running a single 2s Rhino 1750mah lipo and it's fast !!!!! It will flip end-over-end if hit the throttle. Handles great but wish the transmitter had expo.

    I haven't tried the stock battery. I think it says in the manual 6 hrs. You need a real charger to get good results.

    Stock battery packs have a sticker that says you should charge them at .3 amps for good battery longevity - ie more charge cycles. The sticker says not to fast charge the packs at more then 1.2 amps. Fast charging shortens the life of the pack. Hence the charger included with these trucks only puts out 200 mili-amps.
    You have a rodent infestation. Shall I terminate?

    We are getting them this tuesday! I can't wait. I'm guessing from past experience with with a 1200 mah charging at 1.2 amps, it should takes around an hour. Anyone know the dimensions of the battery compartments? I'm curious if my blade 400 batteries will fit.
    "How far is the range on that thing?"

    I haven't run it all the way down I'm to say. Only have about 10 minutes on it, but that still enough time to be very impressed with this little Revo and the battery power has not sagged any yet on the first charge. I need to get out to a larger space ....the curbs are scaring me a bit......

    Do you get the battery adapters in the box? Or do you have to buy them separately?

    Halfway down on the page " The chassis' dual battery compartments let you add a second NiMH battery pack and Traxxas series connector (both sold separately) for 14.4 volts of power."

    And where exactly does it state that MaxAmps packs are safe to charge at 2C?

    I have 2 Max Amps 7.4 packs and 1 11.1 pack and both state right on the label to charge them at a 2C rate. I even called them and they said yes, it's safe to charge them at a 2C rate but if I'm not pressed for time to run then I charge at a 1C rate.

    my hyperion charges and does it all for me based on my mah rating my packs are in parrell 1550 so I believe they charge at 1.5C or so right around there takes me about 40mins to charge a pack and I have two chargers so.....im up and doing from there.

    Mine is coming on a roundabout way to me. In all it will have traveled over 800 miles even though I live only 250 miles from the city it shipped from. Supposed to be here tomorrow though. Was worried it wasn't being shipped until today since UPS tracking said Billing Information Received all weekend and then this morning it was in the Kansas City area (which is actually further away from me than the warehouse is)
