    Can you stick a lipo in stock brushed MERV

    The title says it all.
    I don't have enough money for the VXL but I would like to put a Lipo in it. Can you just pop a 3S lipo in the stock brushed 1/16 e-revo.
    Thanks Jack

    3s no, you could run a 2s if you had a Low voltage cutoff. the most it can run is 8 nimh cells which equals out to be 9.6 volts.

    You dont need an expensive LVC

    Get a $5 lipo buzzer from ebay that makes a noise or flashes a light when it gets to 6.24v or so (2s lipo)
