    Question 3s LiPo with Parallel Cable?

    It looks like a 3S LiPo would be around 1300 mah, can 2 x 3S be run with the parallel cable to increase run time?

    i see no reason to worry, except motor temps on long runs or high gearing.
    looks like a bat change will be easy, so i dont see a need to run the extra weight.
    it would be cool to have endurance races.

    You are right, with a LiPo, one battery at a time should be okay. Seems to me, with the nimh, two in parallel seems to have more power as well as the long run time.

    I think covered picnic areas would be a great place to set up some races!
