Default Question on BL converted Lightning Stadium Pro??

I have the oppurtunity to get a sweet deal on a brushless converted Lightning Stadium Pro 1st gen...It has a rc monster conversion on it and lots of nice CF and Alum in like new condition...its been ran like 1 time.

My question is wether or not this particular truggy is up to the abuse of 6s lipo. I saw only one good video of this truggy on lipos and the diff blew out within the 1st run. Are the diffs weak on this truck?? How about the overall durability and part support. I am strickly a basher and I want to do some sick jumping so durability is my main concern.

I am also looking at a converted 8ight or Hyper...would these be better suite dfor my needs and parts. I really just dont want to be rebuilding diffs and trannys all the time so I want a platform that is bash worthy.

LSP's are JUNK imo....definatly go with an 8ight or Hyper over the LSP....imo Hotbodies has Never made a decent 1/8 kit...and the D8 Does not count...as its Brand new and it still needs to get run through it's paces.

I would agree that the LSP isn't the best 1/8th out there but I wouldn't say it's junk. My brother ran an LSP for two years and it had almost no problems with durability other than the shocks. With all of the aluminum those trucks are like frickin tanks. We had no trouble with the diffs but it had an 8ight RTR engine so I can't say I would guarantee that they would stand up to a 6s lipo.

If you have the hardened diffs you should be fine. If the diffs were junk then why would they put them in the Jammin truggies? I had a converted LSP-R but it is back to nitro now. The durability is good and you can get parts on AMainHobbies cheap, the parts take a long time to wear out too.
