    dual lipo

    So reading older posts, both 2s and 3s are ok in parallel but not series in stock merv. Series will trip over voltage. Is this correct?

    Yes. The reason for the series connector is for if ya gonna run nimh as the vxl-3m can handle 12v nimh.

    two batteries = a LOT of unnecessary weight. personally, I go faster and swap batteries in my kits
    Even on 3s SPCs, (1500 mah) it's worth it but that's just me
    There are lots of ways to do that. Most are wrong.

    I actually like the extra weight...keeps it more planted and it rides a bit lower. I've got two PSC 2500s (that barely fit mind you), that I run in mine. It does get hot tho, so it probably is a better idea for the longevity of my motor/esc to do what you say. Single battery and swap.
