    too much power?

    so this is what happens when you put 3s to a sidewinder with a 4600 motor in a merv

    it was my second run with the system and my 2s battery isnt working right i think
    it wouldnt stay on power, it was like it was stuttering
    then when i threw the 3s in the car would ride the wheelie bar and still almost flip over
    any suggestions on my 2s

    The only thing i can tell is keep the c value of the batts on 30c or above it. Keeps it from frying.

    I had the stutter on a similar setup because the amps the batt gave were too low.

    both of my batts have the same c rating why would the 2s stutter and the 3s be fine

    so i took it out again today
    and used a gps speed sensor program on my android phone to test the speed
    it got up to 61mph before i ran out of parking lot
    thats with a sidewinder and 4600 on 3s with 27/50 gearing on thetoyz white rim and tire combo

    sorry no proof as the only thing i have that can record video was strapped to the truck

    if you had a 1800mah 2s and a 1800mha 3s I think the point is that the 3s has 3 cells to split the draw from and the 2s just has two cells to split the load. I hope im right about this lol!
