    My two sets of 3S LIPOs act the same way, perfectly normal. I run 6S every time and the controller works perfectly. You're good to go.

    I would say just as long as the battery is acting normal I...

    I'm still running all Traxxas CVDs. I've only snapped two dog bones (the non-repairable ends near the diff). That probably happened after landing on that A-Arm jumping off a 2-3 rock face.

    I wouldn't worry about shortening the motor wires. Unless you have the right equipment and experience, I wouldn't worry about it. I've done this numerous times and they stay on (pull test). If...

    Ditto on what ReglarDude said (great tips!). I would like to add one thing: It's possible your switch got some fine dust in it preventing your ESC from turning it on.

    I snapped my chassis in the same place this last winter. My fender bender was pretty lame but the cold probably contributed to the break. This was the one time I left my rollcage off and it snapped...

    Considering it's not adjustable, I wouldn't think so. If you're having that particular problem, perhaps it could be how your pillow balls are adjusted, ride height or the wheels themselves?

    I agree, their springs are awesome (roll cages too). I found using all 8 springs to be a bit excessive. I opted to go half and half using 4 VG Racing and 4 Traxxas Dual Rate springs.

    A new stock diff will come with some sort of thick grease on the ring / pinion gear. The internal parts of the diff will leak a little bit over time. If it's leaking excessively you may want to...

    Upvote for Avid! Every time I've blown a diff it's been due to stock bearings giving out and the gears chewing on the left overs. I prefer to use the Revolution bearings (metal plate facing inside).

    I installed a RRR slipper after the stock slipper started to crack. The only thing I've done so far was buy an extra bearing and slipper pad.

    Once a battery starts going bad it's unlikely it'll recover. When my 3S LIPOs started to have split personalities like that, I would use the good one for other vehicles until I purchased a new set. ...

    I'm with RC-Fan on this one. I have all the upgrades he mentioned. I have an extra level of protection, a rollcage. It adds to the weight but it's saved my truck more times than I can remember.

    That would probably void the warranty. Castle is selling the Mamba Monster 2. It's waterproof and the fan is removable from the top of the case.

    I run 6S, conservatively (2 x 3S LIPOs in series). True, it will wreak havoc on your truck but itís all how you drive.
