    The evx2 actually runs the two batteries in series. I would think that two 3s batteries in series would be way over voltage for it (6s!!). On some forums there are claims of running 5s on an evx2. They put a 2s on the BEC side and a 3s on the other. Never been interested in trying it. Maybe someone with experience will chime in.

    Remember what they say, "If it was easy, everyone would be doing it!!"

    The new evx2 with lvd won't allow 5s even,goes into over voltage protection

    Potentially nothing as long as the 2s is on the bec side.if not or you try 3s x2 for 6s you will let the magic smoke out of the box,it will not go back in the box
    It will become a smelly paper weight

    Lol. My buddies neighbor just got the kawasaki e revo with the momba and he was running two 3s and it was amazing. I just want to do it for about 5 min and get It out of my system. I'm extremely happy with crawling/trail rig being geared down.

    Kelia,
    Imagine what you could tear up in 5 minutes !! lol

    That would be a fun five minutes, but probably expensive
