Default FIRE!!!! FIRE!!!! FIRE!!!!

So my bandit had a fire today... the trans cap module on my novak havoc 3s caught fire. What could be the cause?

nope. no of those. it was before the run and it was a 7 cell nimh. maybe the trans cap module was shorting and lit the cover on fire. this would also explain the glitching i kept getting
