    Lipo Question

    Will I have any problem running 2s matched Lipos in my brand new stock Summit?

    I do not want to get a blown esc/motor.

    you should have a lvc or lva to prevent overdischarge of the lipo's,Other than that it's fine i'm running 2 2s 5000mah 30c lipo
    way better than nimh unless your planning on going under water.

    no worries if you know how to handle Lipo's (charging, balancing and all that, yes a LVC good idea)

    also set them up were they wont get a whip lash, if you hit something with the car. Kinetic energy does amazing things in a crash. I put some radio foam in front were Traxxas has that black rubber foam for battery, just to give them allittle more cushion . i am also running hard case lipos. I do not want a R/C rolling barbecue

    great stuff. mines almost 30 days now. I killed my NIMH 17 days in. so far running a week on them and the truck likes um allot. now i can kick the front up in 1st and drag the bumber , totaly funny . could not do that with the nimh.

    What is a Lvc?
    I am brushless in my other cars so I have not had to worry about any of this before.

    Low Voltage Cutoff .....I use alarm(lva) It just plugs in the balance tap of the bec side lipo.The cut off requires a bit of simple wiring
