    1/16th with stock 3800kv motor vxl3m esc correct. it would be 4s in series, and not recommended is series. it has been done with lvc turned off. but it also may fry your esc instantly. thats why they say use at your own risk. you can run two 2s lipos parallel. this one- http://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-styl...item4172b08037 3s is the max for this vxl3m

    More important than being 4s...it would be 14.8v...which is more than the esc is rated for.

    I've run mine in series plenty of times, yeah, against recommendations, but I HAD to know how fast I could get it to go!!!I turned the LVD off, it got hot after about 10 min and went into thermal shutdown. Once it cooled, it ran fine again. And actually, a fully charged 2S LiPo is 8.4V, so 2...16.8V. I've got 3 cars with the VXL3M ESC in them, and have run them all on 4S. No failures yet!

    I'll try anything once, maybe twice!
