I have been using the centre diff (standard traxxas issue) on 5s for the past 6 months without any problems. I don't race but I use it because I think it occasionally saves the driveshafts on bad...
This is me jumping with 5s. The heaver battery is on the left (the side without a servo). 404.2g vs 307.5g according to the website.
I also like 5s. Although I do run a 2s 5800mAh and a 3s 5000mAh together so the 5000mAh battery depletes first usually leaving the voltages in the 2s at about 3.6 - 3.8 per cell.
Do the lipos provide more unnecessary effort?
I like how everyone has their strengths and weaknesses.

Center diff will definitely stop your truck back flipping on acceleration. As you accelerate the CD transfers power to the front wheels as they have the least traction. The CD does tend to put...

Badlands are a big step up from the stock talons on grass. I was surprised at the performance improvement.
My 3 year old son thinks my erevo is cutting the grass when I run with badlands on!
Is that right? I go nuts with WD40 on my ESC to give it some water resistance - is that not a good thing to do?
Does that put stress on the ESC?
That does look hot. A slash on 'roids.
Was that a CC blower now smashed! That is a well loved truck with heaps of preload on the rear shocks :O.o:
The talons that came out of the box with my E-Revo were horrible. I thought something was wrong with my truck when I first fired her up. Now I just know the stock tires are terrible.
Since I have been running 5S I have noticed ESC and motor are hotter. The ESC fan is often on now whereas it didn't seem to when I was only on 4S. I was hoping to get away without venting my body...
10-15 degrees does not seem like a lot to me. Do you know how much difference it makes if you cut a ventilation hole in your body?
I have installed the CC blower on my motor to help keep the temps down but I'm wondering if it's really just a gimmick. The flow rate from the fan seems low and is only covers a small area over the...
I broke two a-arms today - now I know the "crack" damage sound from a bad landing....... :unsure:
That's just weird. Does that run on smoke?
It's looks so clean and neat on the inside!
What!? Does your coffee table ride on Badlands as well?
I honestly thought that until I tried 5S ........:O.o:
That looks nice!
I seen that little guy before. That's the inner case of your broken bearing........
