I don't see a 5000/45C 4S battery listed for cars. If it wasn't a hardcase, and it was in a car, chances are there (albeit pretty slim) that a hard impact could have shorted the battery internally. The only 5000/45C 4S battery from them I found on amain is this one:
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...C-148V-5000mAh

A lotta people don't agree, but ROAR specifies hardpacks for a reason. I'll wager your battery doesn't get warrantied because of misapplication, but that's just a wild guess.
Yes, It was soft. It had deans on it. The soldering job was fine. In addition to that, the buggy was running when it was smoking. I actually pulled over to the side. The battery was velcrowed with 3 straps. I feel pretty good about it as the tray was lined with cushioning. Your probably right about the hard case being more protective but that will not allow you to inspect the battery for puffing. I will let you guys know how it goes.

Ill be there sunday with my erevo and stampede. Prolly race both if im feelin frisky! You cool with runnin your 1/8 buggy with me?
You guys all need to bring your 1/8 buggies and monster trucks out so that we can run that class/ those classes! I will be there with my stampede and erevo every other sunday. Everyone that has 1/8 or MT should bring them out. It will be awesome to run 8 mt at a time! That would be a great race to see.
My erevo is stock so I will not be a problem to beat! Just looking for some friendly people to lose to.lol
See you all sunday...

That would be neat to see an erevo in a race. I canít get mine to stay off its lid just going down the street bashing with parts breaking off. Are you running stock tires?

I have stock tires and a set of bowties on truggy wheels. I was driving on the track with the stock ones and they got plenty of grip on the dirt. What do you run on yours? And are you going to bring it sunday?

Thumbs down sick of being sick

Damn guys, I really wanted to put in a full season up there with you boys. Been dealing with some really bad health problems this summer. Still trying to figure it all out. I have some serious blood sugar issues going on and of course the doctors are clueless The one night I did make it up there I was really sick and had to bail b4 we even had a chance to run. I have 3 dialed machines sitting here, but been just too sick to run. Trying to get healthy so I can get some runnin in b4 the damn summer runs out.. Have fun dudes, keep posting pics and videos on here and on FB so I can get some enjoyment anyways.
