LIFE batteries it is. With the LIFE batteries do they need to be balance charged like LIPO or not? The charger I got does it all but im just curious.

Anyone know which model LIFE battery to use with the MX-3X? and which one for sure fits the D8T truck too? I want to order those up tomorrow.

I ordered up the motor and pipe just a minute ago....went with the alpha orange and aplus 0801 hard anodized pipe kit.

this motor is a beast for the price. Far as servos, Savox is the way. I have some orion servos, they are the same but cost more than savox.

Yep, bought a vette a long time ago. I got a 86 stick loaded to the gills and it has 79k on it. Runs like a champ! Once my kids graduate from university, I am getting me a Z06 - all time favorite. I am probably 3 years away from that.
