    Woahhhh 3s lipo is awesome!!

    Just picked up a venom 3s 50c 5000mah battery
    Tried it in my stampede

    I was running a mmp/3800 with 23/90 gearing

    I could not come close to top speed without it coming up on me
    I've gotten my pede up to 54mph before
    Now I'm not sure how fast it is!
    But it sure does fly..

    That's awesome I've yet to try lipo but I want to but they don't ship to Alaska and the Lhs is way expensive I just upgraded my monster jam to run 4 cell so I really want to see what it can do with the
    1/8 chassis and any lipo with my old setup I used a 9 cell 5000 mah and it is heavy but I like it

    Yeah lipo is awesome
    I got my first 2s in October and then I thought that was fast
    But I don't see how people break a lot with 3s though.. Yet

    Sweet dude!! Congrats on the Lipo Upgrade. 3S is extremely fast. You might want to put some weights on the front to keep the nose down.

    bet you wont go back to 2s anymore...it'll seem slow and boring once you get used to the 3s.

    I was wondering if an aluminum bulkhead would add some weight to keep the front end down? The bulkhead is one of the few things I've broken and my front end is in the air a lot with 2s lipo.

    Welcome to the darkside..hehe,

    I run the SV2 3800 combo in my pede and it's fast.
    On 3S with 22/83 gearing, I hit 58mph. Running 31/76 I top out at 60. I used rocks as my weights in the front
    Never trust a fart.

    Looks like every one is using weights in front. I am using only 2s, but I think I will do the same to get the hang of LiPo and brush less system.
    Going to use some fishing equipments.....

    That's gotta be like getting ready to line up at the track and your vehicle has so much HP, you blow a tire during your burnout! Probably sux on 1 hand but is so freaking awesome on the other! I have got to get a 3s battery!!!
