I just got my Tmaxx yesterday afternoon and started reading through the manual and watched the DVD. I got through 4 tanks of fuel just fine by following the break-in procedure as best as I could. On the fifth tank (last one) I got half way through and my controller/receiver started acting funny. It seemed like my receiver would no longer pick up my controller. I am using brand new Energizer's in both the controller and receiver. Do you think the receiver batteries are already going dead? I am going to pick up a rechargeable set tomorrow. Any other ideas? Also, I have not yet glued my tires, as I didn't pick up any glue from my hobby store as I forgot about it. Will I notice a big difference in acceleration once the stock tires are mounted (glued) to the rims?
