I sold a tmaxx many years ago to a friend and told him to make sure that he changed the batts in the rx and tx, a week later I get a call telling me that the truck went out of control at full throttle down the street and right through an aluminum garage door, flipping upside down and burning the motor up. I didn't want to say it but I did, I told you to change the batts did you do that, Reply was no I didn't, lesson learned. I haven't owned another nitro since myself. Hope everything works out man and like posted above do whatever it takes to make them happy, don't want them to not like you as you are neighbors, I know you are probably freaking out but everything will be okay, just be nice as you can, and again good luck and god bless.
