I’m still running NiMh. This setup dates back to ~1998, and nothing has been upgraded except for the esc early on. My friend’s setup date to around 2002 or so and is a similar story.

We had a ‘99 in the generic configuration (LE, 4 cyl auto in Cashmere Beige with the Oak cloth interior) for 13 years and 130K miles. Honestly, one of the best cars we ever owned as a family.
