Ok. I'm looking at going to 6s with mine now. Looks like my last time out might have overheated it more then I thought. Tried to run it last night and it's acting very odd.

i cancelled the 4s and bought 2x 2s. however when i got home i realized they would not fit either because they were plug in. i cut 2 small slits on the sides and they will fit now.

If you guys ever get a chance to try 8s, I highly recommend it.

8s in one of these would be crazy fast. Would not have room to even come close. Thinking of taking the Losi6 to 8s,yes. 6s should be plenty for it.

For now, I'll save 8s for my 1/5 stuff. I can't imagine this on 8s. Plus the current ESC in my Inferno would get blowed up real good

Yes! This is mine on 8S. I messed up an attempt at a speed-run, so rebuilding now - but it will be back .

Serrated nuts will solve the issue.

All wheel nuts should be serrated. Never understood that.

The stock blue ones are not serrated probably to cut costs.

168 is pretty hot. Were the outside temps pretty hot?
