    It's a pain to change the oil. I just keep mine stock on both 3s and 2s lipo. I believe 2s is pretty close to the stock nimh anyways. On the other hand i'm not the most sophisticated driver. I once accident put 30k in both the front and rear instead of 50k in front and 30k in rear and had trouble figuring out if org made much of a difference.

    yup! I know my shocks shipped with air in them and my diffs didn't have a whole lot of oil in them so I think it's worth while to go through everything even if you don't change from stock. But bigken is right, the diffs are kind of a pain.
