    Hey...

    Did you change too the 23t speed pinion? If not try it , temps should go down a little and the battery wont be as strained

    You can run it without having 2 batteries , you put that on so the motor/ESC wont over heat from the extra voltage . The same thing goes no matter how much voltage you run .
