    I am at the ranch, dont have 3g or 4g lte, just 1x. So i cant download any other vids for the moment. Okay here is where i stand, my lipo's are at like 7.5 volts now finally after over charging them. But i have a new problem. My esc doesnt light up at all now. When i plug in the lipo batteries, the truck runs great, but no esc light: neither red or green. And then when i try and plug in the regular nimh batteries, no esc lights but the head and tail lights come on, but the summit will not go forward nor reverse but has steering capabilities, weird. So is my esc fried?

    Was there to much voltage from the lipo batteries (9.3) and could that have fried the esc or maybe just the light in it?

    It definitely wasn't too much voltage. 2x 8.4v Nimh will give more voltage than your overcharged lipos.

    Good news, the esc is finally working great, green light for the lipo's. The batteries are doing awesome. Just for those who want to know, if you overcharge your lipos, expect 8 hours of play time out of them lol

    Please be very very very careful with them. If you notice any puffing or the pack expanding at all, do not use them!!
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I noticed you used the outside holes on the servo vs the inside holes in the video. whats the difference?
