One thing to keep an eye on - if you feel like the stock motors are losing a little power, make sure the motors bushings are oiled (honestly). one of the guys at the NC thought his motors went out, because it would barely turn over with a fully charged lipo pack; he threw some oil on all the bearings and it returned to normal...
Well i ordered the losi lipo, and im just going to change out the male connector on the battery to female. My motors turn really good with a full charge, and i have one of the first boxes that came out also. Sometimes when trying to bump a strong motor, i can smell something burning (heat smell) but so far so good on the motors.

Mine do that from time to time also. As with any box, just don't hold it down trying to turn over a cold/new motor for an extended period of time, and you'll be fine.
