    I don't mean to sound mean (honest!) but ... why should they incur the risk? Do car dealerships take a car back if you wreck it? If it was a faulty battery, sure, the company should have made good...

    The old Rx is just an Rx. The 6533 Rx now includes TSM. So yes, TSM is now internal to the Rx.

    For me it was a Powerlab 8 charger system.

    I think in the watt readout the software gives you that I've been up to using 200W or so at a time, even doing parallel charges - and this is a charger...

    Unknown when an Ultimate with TSM is available; only Traxxas would know. Judging by the introduction of other models, I'd say "sometime soon".

    If you get the existing Ultimate (or any even...

    Yes, without qualifications, yes.

    With the new 6533 Rx and a Tx with bluetooth built in (not just BT-ready) you'd be able to add the Telemetry bits (most are $5-$10 each - it's fairly simple...

    Another idea is to keep the basics, but modernize it:

    1. Castle Sidewinder/3800 SCT combo - about $110
    2. TQi radio system - TQi TSM (Stability Control) Rx for $40, Traxxas TQi Tx for $50...

    Honestly I'd buy another TQi from an internet chop shop. They're dirt cheap - get one with the bluetooth connection integrated in it for $40 or so, and then get a TSM 6533 and you've gotten a nice...

    I just don't think that at 3.85 you're at 50% of power. I think you're under that.

    Here's what I did:
    1. Took a 4000 mah 3S battery into storage charge, 3.86 per Powerlab 8.
    2. Charged it...

    The "charge from empty" is a better test than the "charge from 3.8v" test, IMHO. At least that gives you some idea of what size of battery you have, even if the battery isn't fully discharged (so in...

    Perhaps I'm confused; I'd thought:

    Storage *voltage* is 3.8-3.85v. That's what a battery should be stored at.

    The MAH that you can put into a battery that's storage charged is typically more...

    One just needs to buy the part 6533 and put it into your Traxxas model and (as long as you have a TQI radio with either dock or Bluetooth, plus the corresponding smartphone) you're in business.
