    I see there are some barbs on the pins. Did you do anything to release them, or did you just force them out? Were you able to re-use them? I may be better off replacing the connector any way.

    We were running in doors. The temps were probably around 60 degrees. I think hard landings at bad angles and high speed side impacts from other vehicles caused more problems than the temperatures.

    Somewhere on the Traxxas site, I can't find it now, there is a page with pictures of all the different versions of XL-5. It describes how to identify them and which ones have LVC.

    Thanks for the tip rag. I know how they got stripped. We are working on that. I once heard a 12 year old could break an anvil if you gave him a ball peen hammer. I know it's true.
