A member on the Arrma Forum set me straight on this. This is normal with the Castle ESC’s and amp draw which makes sense considering they have always drained unevenly. This is the only Castle ESC I have.

Also, I think I have the temp issues worked on this too. The little bit of binding I heard in the front diff I guess was enough to put enough strain on the motor to raise temps.

That's quite a bit of cell variation. I have a lot of Castle ESC's and don't have this issue. I've only had that issue once and it was because of a crappy battery and the cells are going bad.

It’s a Power Hobby 4S that is about a year old but have only had about 20 runs on it. I balance charge everytime and put into storage mode after draining it. My Lectron Pros drop but not as bad as the Power Hobby.

Little update on this. I followed @Overkill lead and added a fan to my MMX the same way he documented on this forum. Not sure of the exact thread though.

And I got rid of that hideous blue heatshrink tubing on the motor cables. Man, I have hated that since the second I used it. It’s not even a cool blue, it’s just blah and looked ridiculous. Oh well, you use what you have ya know? Swapped it for this.

I put the Minnokawas on and sealed the holes on the inside of the wheel with Gorilla tape without venting. I hated them on my Kraton but i like them on this. They don’t ballon and feel like they have enough cushion for hard landings. They aren’t too hard. Although they cave when running in colder temps which was to be expected.
