Among other upgrades i'm looking at lipo's. But I have a (noob) question. A 2s lipo is 7.4 volts (i think). The NiMh packs I run are 8.4 volts. Because you get speed from volts, to me the 8.4 NiMh pack would be faster. But, everyone says the Lipos are faster.... I'm confused which is pretty normal, but a quick explanation would help me greatly. I'm not after monster speed but want to at least keep the speed and power i have.
2wd stampede, brushed titan 12T, 8.4 5000Mah Nimh packs and the 2.4ghz system.
