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.

I had a LSP for a few years , raced and bashed it and never had any problems . But it was running a nitro engine . As long as you keep fluid in the diffs they will be fine . Parts support is usually pretty good at my LHS which I never because of how strong this truck is . Just make sure to keep an eye on the screws that secure the steering knuckles , they tend to loosen up sometimes .

All three trucks you named are extremely strong. The drivetrain on all of them can handle brushless power fine as well. I don't knwo where you usually run, but if you want it super quiet, you may want to run a Kyosho 46t plastic spur gear. Metal on metal is still quiet just not as silent as plastic on metal. If you run metal on metal, just make sure you run a hardened pinion gear... RC-Monster sells them as well.
