    Run nihm and lipo together?

    Was running the summits with my bro in law today, started wondering... Can you run a lipo on the motor side of esc and a nihm on the electronics side?

    + 1 emaxx . Not a good idea, NiMh and LiPo have different discharge rates/characteristics the motor & ESC utilize the power provided by both batteries, thus the reason for using the same batteries on both sides? It might work temporarily, but the long term effects on the life of all things electrical on your Summit would most likely be undesirable.

    Straight out of the manual on page 4:
    Do not mix battery types and capacities.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
