I should open mine up an see what board I have. I upgraded to the long red motors and did a full metal upgrade for the little monster. No issues so far and lots of off road antics are in the books.
So, question....can these electronics handle a 3 cell Lipo?

Maybe.... I run a 5000 2S pack. The additional capacity makes for much better running over a nicad pack.

I run 2 cell as well but How did you squeeze a 5000 in there? I can barely get a 2200 in mine. My tank came with a Li-ion pack. Lasts about 10 minutes.

I bought a hard pack (plastic shell) that fits perfectly. I also permanently mounted it in there, and run the lead through the hull so I plug it in through the back hatch. I think I posted pictures in this thread of it.. (also designed a big speaker box for a better speaker and 3d printed it amongst other mods.)

I spoke too soon about reliabilty...It seems my controller board has given up. The motors are inoperative. Everything else works, even the engine sounds but, no power going to the motors. I checked the plugs, ensured no binding in the drive train but nothing.
Now, lots of smart guys here.....should I attempt to replace the FETs or just buy another board?
I think???I have the 5.3 as I bought this last year from Mato Mart.
If i need to buy another board, should I get the 6.0 version? I already know it can't work with the smoker(that never worked anyways )
Any help would be appreciated fellas.
I'm defenseless until then!

Well I went to the source for an answer. The fellas at Mato Tanks let me know that the 6.0 board will work as long as I get the new TX. Not a big deal. I even ordered a new smoker hehehe. I will be adding fans to all the boards for some extra insurance.
I'll update the progress when I get the board.
Cheers.

Yeah, I looked. Good guys and excellent customer service. The issue is shipping. It's so expensive to ship to Canada from there. Thanks though!

I have ordered planes from there and the shipping used to be on par with anyone else, maybe a bit more but still within reason. The customer service is the best in the business though!
I will attempt to seek and replace the dead Mosfet while I await my shipment. Worst case is I trash the trash.
