Why is it bloated in the 1st place? normally when a Lipo is bloated, chances are that it's damaged inside so using it is not impossible but just dangerous cause the risk of it exploding is gonna be quite high.

How old is the batt? What kind of charger? Try discharging & charging it a few times. Normal Nimh batt should feel warm when fully charged.

Due to overcharged? since he claim to charge at 5A. however.. some says lipo bloated is when u press in the bloated area is kind of squishy .. this batt is still hard in the bloated area.. i myself have not seen those yet.. saw video of this lipo battery and is highly dangerous if not well taken care of.

I am using the same Lipo Battery (Velociti Titanium 5100mAh - 28C). You friend has to select Lipo, select 5100mAh and charge at 2S rate. It will be working. But since it bloated, i think better don't play with it.

Some chargers will limits the among of amps use when u using Lipo mode aka "CC-CV" mode, example DuraTrax ICE..

I believe yr friend who charge at 5amp is either capacity of his/her Lipo is 5000mAh or he/she select the wrong amps for charging..

Bloated maybe due to overcharging and overdischarge of the batt.. Remember to stop using the batt when the recommanded voltage had reached..

First, DON"T CRASH YOUR CAR! (just joking)

But to all nitro cars, whether onroad or offroad, i guess the engine and air filter are important.

But to me, everything is equally important when you are running your car. Servos, diffs and brakes, just to name a few. Sooner or later you would want to change your TX and RX. The RTR's is very basic, and running on AM 27mHz.

And remember to tighten all your screws and nuts. You wouldn't want your car to disintegrate while going into a turn.

Pros and Cons, I can only think of one. You can only play GP cars at designated place. HDBs and Condos are a big no no...

So have fun with your new car!
