The battery thats at 3.75 volts is the same battery every run wether it's on the left or right plug (I have the batteries numbered so I know which is which). Both batteries charge and balance fine. I just feel like I am losing run time because lvc cuts in when the one battery hits 3.2.
The LVC reads the lipo packs as a whole, so if you have the LVC set to 3.2v/cell, then it will cut out when the pack reaches 19.2v overall.

19.2v would be for a 6s I am running a 4s (2x2s on mine) which would be 12.8 cutoff. I have the cutoff set to auto on the esc. With the voltages per pack being (after lvc kicks in) 7.5 (3.75x2) and 6.4 (3.2x2) total being 13.9, that would seem that the esc is cutting out at 3.4 per and not the factory 3.2 setting. Or did they change the auto setting to 3.4v per cell?

Will have to get the castle link and check it out on the computer.

Also broke a right rear hub yesterday and bent the hinge pin. And no hobby shops carry replacements in stock. Anyone know of any aftermarket (cheaper) aluminum rears for the vorza besides factory?

I'm not too sure what you mean, but when you connect the esc with castle link, it will display the current (stock) settings. Changes are then made from there.

I've been racing mine for about 6 months at a couple of clubs, and yes it's very competative.

I have ran my Vorza in our Summer series, I'am currently second overall in my first season back driving 1/8th (usually race large scale). So I would say yes the car is competative.

I've been racing mine at club events and I've done well. 1st and 2nd place finishes for the most part. The buggy is more capable than I am as a driver...

Just picked up a used VE8 and I'm going to try it out for a while and see if I do better or not.

I too picked up a very lightly used VE8 came with alloy skids, full spring set, ESC, motor, batts & a large selection of spares at a good price. I have ran it on a number of occasions now, I was blown away. The only setup change I have made from standard settings was yellow springs on the rear, so the car has loads of room for improved lap times.

Ben I'am sure you will be well pleased with your VE8.

I'm hoping so. Mine came with the HHH chassis too. Just received it yesterday and I'm going through it completely.
