    The brushed Slash comes with the waterproof XL-5 ESC, which can run 3S.

    You will want to watch the temps on your motor and make sure you do maintenance more often.

    Eh... Depends.
    When I answered I was thinking of scalers for some reason. I know a good number people who run XL-5 on 3S, but they are pushing higher turn motors that pull less amperage. You can get away with running a RC like a Slash on 3S with the XL-5, but you need to gear down or put in a higher turn motor. Plus, you'd really need to watch your temps and be steadfast on your maintenance to prevent excess current draw.

    Sorry for the confusion.
