    The VXL-3s and NiMH

    Totally with you, and that is why I am keeping my nimh's even though I now also have LiPo's. Nimh's are always ready to go even if the performance is less than LiPo's.

    I got this for $10 and it fits in my tool box. You have to be within an inch or two for accurate readings. I just hold it against the motor and esc and I get accurate readings.

    Which slipper clutch kit?

    Having just looked at this, you should upgrade to 5352R and 5351. 5352R is preferable over 5352X, as R has the aluminum pads.

    Seal all the air and weep holes with hot glue or silicon caulk, but your car will not drive well. The tires act as part of the suspension, and if air cannot escape, the tires will be very bouncy.
