Looking for help. I'm running a stock 4x4 on a stock Nimh battery and I have cooked one battery (split the outer case) and just ran it again on the street with some loose gravel and the battery is hotter than you want to hold and the motor is hotter than you want to touch.
This is the first 4x4 I've owned but the gear whine is pretty loud compared to the 2x4 stampede we own. I set the pinion as per the directions with the slip of paper.
I just replaced the ESC and motor on on a waranty repair so I feel confident it's not those parts.
