    LVC detects when your battery is almost out of voltage or whatever, and it cuts the power before you over-discharge your battery. Over-discharging a lipo can ruin it or signifigantly reduce the life of the battery.

    That's an option included on your esc (red led nimh, green led lipo mode), you have to select lipo mode if you are going to run lipo in your car if not the batt will be drained and damaged. If you have red led on your esc, turn the esc on, then press and hold the on/off and keep it until it beeps and the light switch from red to green, it is on your manual.

    it does but you won't notice the difference still pretty fast. Now that you are going to use lipo you will notice the improvement.
