This weekend we decided to run our new 1/8th scale jammin buggies, with mamba max ESC-2650 combo. INstalled a new Venom 30C 3200mah 14.8v 4-Cell LiPO Battery. After 3 minutes of racing the car burst into flames. Scared the hell out of us.
I am new to the electric side, doing nitro for many years and never saw anything like that. I called Venom yesterday, awaiting callback. I should state that all the setiings on the ESC were set to default
Anyone hear of issues with this or any other 4S LIPO buring up?
