    Double the available amps.
    Less draw on your packs.
    LiPo's are way lighter than NiMh.
    Speed controller in a box with little air movement could result in burned up speed controller.
    ESC doesn't really weigh that much... doesn't lower the center of gravity a whole lot.
    Batteries in the battery box would actually lower the center of gravity more than the ESC move.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    so i hooked up my brothers 3s airplane battery today and it was a blast all most a little scary. The tires bubble a little but not too much. Still accelerating like a grandma until i get some diff shims.

    so today i had to try it so i stuck my car in 2wd and it was lots of fun and i was surprised how well it handled but it was still awful compared to 4wd, but i noticed the motor runs cooler and you get longer battery life.

    all of my shock oil leaked out so i filled it up with some of my spare 40wt oil runs much better now. I am amazed i have had this car for a month and i have not broken anything and i have done a lot of bashing in under 32F weather

    Well after i fixed my servo, the throttle seemed to be delayed, also the servo was making strange noises. Maybe the servo is messing things up but i do not know

    well i will look into the servo problem.

    Ever since i have got my car i have been e mailing pro line and jc concepts trying to get them to make a chevy body for the 1/16 platform. It would also be cool off pro line made some of the bigger popular tires like trenchers, mashers, badlands for the mini's instead of just dirt hawks.

    I used hitec HS-85MG+ servo for 4 months and it handles very well. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Hitec-HS...item53ea906deb
    some guys of this forum also recommend this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Hitec-HS...item1e6956b6cd I personally don't have it but it has more torque as they said.
    Today, I received 2 new servos that are very inexpensive, just 8 bucks. Corona DS 238MG is metal gear, and has excellent reviews, I didn't have the chance to try it but I will soon.
    here some pictures





    they are not waterproof, but is very easy how to waterproof a servo, here some videos: http://www.youtube.com/results?searc....1.eN70j5sPX9w

    well since the shocks are from a stampede they are way too stiff, if i got some really soft springs i think it would work really well
