    Cool Daul 11v Lipos?

    So i have been reading that the ESC uses the one conector for the motors and the other for the electronics. If I find which one runs the motors since I have the dual Dewalt 14v motors would I be able to run the 11v lipos?

    On the original evx2 yes. But not dual. You can run a 7.4volts (2s) and a 11.1 (3s) for a total of 5s lipos. But I BELIEVE the new lvd evx2 will not allow for more than 4s lipo. Any one tested the new evx with more than 4s lipos? From what i have read it will go into over voltage protection, but if its similiar to the mini 1/16 systems you may can put in into NicM mode and then try using 5s lipos but this is inharently dangerous ( no lvd overheating etc).' Any more thoughts?

    The way the ESC works is it runs the motor off BOTH batteries, but the rest of the electronics are run off just ONE of the batteries.

    You could run a jumper between the 2 plugs and run a single 3S lipo... but you can't run 2 3S lipos in series.
