Currently still making my mind up on my load, been doing lots of research trying out a lot of blasters. Haven't yet tried to mod any blasters, been holding off till i learn a bit more, after hearing some horror stories about batteries catching fire. Simply put i am finding my feet in a new hobby and thoroughly enjoying it, learning a great deal and hoping that next time i go to a war i'll be more useful to my team ;)
I wouldn't worry too much about these horror stories with things exploding or catching on fire, it's mainly just scaremongering or some idiot driving a screw through a soft pack LiPo.
They're not dangerous at all if you look after them and treat them with respect. YouTube has some great mod guides, I'm currently modding one of my Stryfes with Meishel 2.0s and a 1000mah 40c series Zippy Compact, which still leaves me 12 motors to remove the locks and do a full rewire.
Even stock Barricade motors will take a 3S LiPo, you just need to rewire, remove locks and solder on the LiPo connector of your choice.
Due to the smaller battery tray, an 800mah 2S 40c series LiPo is enough to run a pair of undervolted M.T.B. Rhinos or stock Barricade motors, you might have to shave the posts on the cage for the larger flywheels, but it works fine.
A pretty easy mod with a bit of soldering and some small Dremel work, you just can't do it with a Stockade as the motors are totally different.
M.T.B.s Super Stryfe video is a great place to start electronic mods, everything is clear and explained, so just get the tools and parts and be prepared for the occasional late night up modding, try that video from M.T.B. It's the only way to learn properly, doing it yourself. You may make a mistake or two on the way, but it's all experience, can probably be fixed and you can be proud of something cool you made!
