It took a bunch more equipment on his bench...and this car...I'd be bitching too!! Never seen a nihm come close to that much damage.

Not pointing out dangers, just bringing up the issue of how much people have been griping about chinese made lipos and there is no mention of sub c's made in China. Sub c's have had a lot of accidents lately, seems like there are more problems ever since the 4200's have hit the market. Horrible thing with that pic of the car. Thats the first I've seen happen from a lipo mishap...DAMN.
R40-Pondering a new Red Dot
Hara Pro4-GTB/3.5/Max Amps-yea.
