    single lipo unbalanced????

    hey guys when i get my mini e revo i was planning on running the (2) 3s lipo setup but i am wondering if you just use one batt wont the car become un balanced if not im thinking just one batt would be best for bashing because of the less weight and force on the parts. any ideas would be great!
    thanks jake

    yes it would make it unbalanced but not much. the car was probally built that way since traxxas only includes one battery.
    i bet my Quad could out RIP your Quad!!

    ya chris york is right, they just say if running one battery to put it in the left compartment i think it is, it will be a bit unballanced but not so much that you will notice

    And the Lipo should weigh less than the Nimh, anyway. . .

    Use the single battery on the RX side, the balance is near perfect!
