    4S lipo?

    Anyone tried 2x2S lipo in series on Slash or E-REVO? will I be the first (and maybe last)? 4S is only 16.8V, so that's the same V as 2 7-cell NiMH?
    Yeah, I know....easy on the trigger........LHS still doesn't have spare parts
    Sorry if this has been asked before, I swear I searched for 20 minutes!

    voltage seems a little high but it might work for a while. you could probably get a few speed runs in and but then the esc might do its little thermal shutdown deal. you never know though, try it out and let us know how it works!
    what was that? what was what..oh that. thats mine.

    People have done this, you have to turn the lvc off and run in nimh mode to do it. People have done it but the esc and motor heat up super quick and its not good for more then a few speed runs.
    What am I supposed to write in 50 characters?

    on asphalt it dont really overheat, not more than 3S.
