    Battery gearing and heat Problems

    Getting a merv soon and need to know if two stock batteries on series with 23 tooth pinion running on gravel and grass would be a problem?

    yes, series is a really bad idea running any gearing unless you are planning on upgrading the esc

    I agree with Jimbo,

    The stock ESC cannot handle that voltage for very long.

    "grass" is a pretty general term. The merv can run well on very short & sparse grass. If it's "dense" and even a little bit long the merv will be slowed too much from the grass and will heat up the motor/esc.
