I think the voltage of the 3S would fry the motor.

Any decent (think 25C 4000mAh or similar, and from a good company) 2S LiPo should be more than capable of handling the amperage draw.

So the deans connector melted and the cells ruptured?

Sounds like you were drawing too much current from the battery and it overheated.

Having no pinch left does not mean the motor is shot, as long as it has compression left that's all that really matters.

I use a screwdriver dedicated to tuning and stopping my engine, with a plastic handle of course. The end of the screwdriver gets all chewed up, but it works great for me.

As long as the heated air is moving away from the ESC, you're good. Of course, the efficiency might be different, but probably not very much.

The charger wastes more power then it replaces, due to heat loss through electrical resistance.

You are better off not using the charger, and adding another battery if possible.

Other people have brought back cells the way you did, but I'd be very careful when charging that battery, and also when you are using it.

Also, I'd reccomend against the 8.0, get the 4.6, it has more than enough power, with great economy. As in, an average of 7 minutes per tank, with 8 minutes or more being possible.

The track I raced on was similar, packed topsoil and slightly dusty/loose soil on top, and I ran/still run Bowties. All I can say is they work great. :nod:
