    2 1600 NiMH bats

    Hey all,


    I have a series connector and two 1600 NiMH. I have been running them in parallel, but I am ready to try series. My question is: Will I need to use the speed gear included in the box or can I get away with the gear that came preinstalled? Its winter here in Ottawa, Canada and that means that its at least zero degrees if not lower most days.

    Run on flat ground as well.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Just curios, 2 x 2cell lopos in parallel would be fine right? Give me the 2cell power with double run time if I'm not mistaken?
