    LIPO cutoff

    On a stock 1/10 Rally system, what is the cutoff voltage for LIPOs?

    Why 3.2? I'd guess more like 3.5 volts per cell based upon my observations.

    isn't the VXL3s cut off at 3.2V or did they bump it up to 3.5V now? but then again when I have my VXL3s I don't run it until LVD kick in.

    In my experience, on 2s 3.3-3.6V, and on 3s 3.7-3.9V.

    Castle systems changed their stock LVC from 3.0 to 3.2 volts per cell. I don't think Traxxas has ever had their LVD set as low as 3.2.

    i'm under the impression that all BL ESC set at 3.2 since anything lower than that can ruin your lipo, even @ 3.2 I still think its a bit low. thanks for clearing that up ksb51rl.
