    The batteries are charged through the balance ports. To the charger, it looks like one 6S battery - so it is important that they are discharged to similar levels. I run two 3s lipos in parallel on...

    I agree with JWEBB and DAD - go by your temps (motor AND esc). There are so many variables involved - ambient air temp, what kind of air flow you have (i.e. holes in your body), what kind of...

    I have seen these, but I thought they would apply a lot of pressure and prematurely wear out the axle bearings. How long have you guys been running them?

    hypermut is a trustworthy seller.

    Well, he had me worried (was slow in getting parts in the mail), but after I inquired, he got back to me and sent the parts. Better slow than never... Thanks hypermut!
