    continue running

    Do you guys run your lipos to low voltage cutoff or stop sooner?

    So what is the cutoff on the VXL3S ? I thought Traxxas support said it's about 3.2 . I watch mind till it get to about 3.4-3.5 then stop running .

    If stage 1 is even 3.2 the packs resting voltage is probably higher... 3.5-3.6 due to voltage dip.

    Talk to Traxas support today an he said there 2 stages to LVD on the VXL3s first stage is a slowdown stage an it about 3.7v an thes econd is No power cut off is about 3.2 , He also suggested to stop running after the 3.7 first sage for best battery life . Just thought I would let you'll no this .

    I'd rather use more than 50% of the usable capacity... 3.7 is only .1v below storage!

    Basher here dirt only Castle mmp sct I take a cool off period when I hear the esc fan. At that point I check voltage with a volt meter and switch lipos when its close to LVC.
