    Do I have to get a new battery?

    My lipo is swelling just a little. What are the odds of something happening. If I don't get a new pack? I just dropped $500 in the hobby last weekend and don't have much left in my budget.

    Don't use it.
    Fully discharge and dispose of it... even Traxxas does not cover puffed LiPo's as far as I know.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Three (plus) threads on the same subject is more than enough. You are asking for support of non-Traxxas items on the Traxxas forum. That is not permitted.
    In the interest of safety, I will repeat what others have said, "A puffed LiPo is a hazardous thing." Use at your own risk and fully acknowledge that wherever you put it, anything around it is in danger.
