    I had same issues but havnt no lifting since I cut out around that exhaust sticker .. think that is letting air through instead of trapping it in the buddy and making it lift..

    Forgot you were running the MMM setup in that. Yah, i stoped playing with that setup in one of my XO-1s after about a week. Did have problems with controling the car after about 70 to 80 mph, did not feel right IMO. Sucks about your lipo.

    Now that's a fat stack of lipos! I dig it Pandee. Looks like you could of used 2 ec5's in series on the XL. Just take it slow at first, get use to it, break in the lipos and bring her back in one piece.

    looks like it , because it seems the neg -
    from the connectors on left hand side are going into the pos+
    of the connectors on the right hand side connectors

    I used these type of connectors on my spartan boat , but due to not having a on off switch , everytime id plug them in =the spark would <not sure the word> create sme type of craters inside the cap and after so many plug in and unplugg it became hard to even connect anymore so went back to traxxas plugs
    might be somthing to look for as the xl2 doesnt have a on off switch either

    Lipos are fine, damage looks alot worse that it is, all I need to replace is front splitter and mount new servo new body and new diff housing. And a castle link to get brakes..

    Since Car and Driver said the XO-1 is the Veyron of RC cars, I think we need a crash thread like other supercars have lol:
