    VXL Low Voltage Cutoff Question

    Hey guys

    I was out running my Slash a little while ago and tripped the low voltage cutoff. What was weird was that it dropped to 50% power for all of about 3 seconds and then shut off altogether. The couple of times that I previously hit LVC, it was in 50% power long enough for me to drive the truck back to me, get the lid off and disconnect the battery. When I put the battery (2s 5000mah Venom) back on the charger to put it into storage mode, it showed that the cells were at ~3.65v and ~3.25v.

    Out of an abundance of caution, is there anything to be concerned with here or am I overthinking it (I do that sometimes)?

    Thanks in advance!

    The VXL is known to be a little quirky. Be happy it seems to cut off early and not late

    Thanks for the reassurance. Just out of curiosity, what voltage is the cutoff supposed to be set at?

    It's been too long since I've had the VXL. I don't remember off hand.

    if I'm not mistaken, it's 3.2v per cell
    fix, run, break, repeat
