    Maybe running tomorrow. Did a rookie move I was going to run 5cell in my merv but grabbed the parallel connector not the series hooked up my new thunder power 3s 65' and 2s 65 50c
    Was ruddy to go but car started getting hot. So I yanked the batteries off they were warm. The 3cell went from 12.6vdown to 9.8v In a minuteand the 2cell was overcharged at 9.8 volts. So I ran the2 cell fast to drop voltage and so far its working fine

    It pays to double check things before plugging them in. I accidentally shorted the batteries on mine a long time ago, I have double checked everything from that point on. The bright side is that you probably will never do that again
    I reject your reality and substitute my own!

    Yeah I know! I think it is the combination of proper diff break in, mostly 4s use, and the axles are close to parallel with the ground. But yeah you should be set with all of your diff mods lol

    Pulling off the castle quick connect doesn't work with the field link. What a waste of money!

    Happy new year!

    Kind of a bad landing on the jump. I couldn't see the landing where I was standing!

    I just heard from the seller on ebay they said the 5608 comes with the 5603 manual. Can anyone confirm?

    Looks are kind of deceiving. I have jumped 28 ft there with my merv and this jump was an easy ten ft past that one. Without getting much speed. I came down a hill from the right had to turn left straighten up and hit the jump

    Had me confused for a while after bought it, cos the manual was different.

    Downloaded on to my ipad, started keeping all my manuals on it, everything from tv to toaster.
