    Smaller lipos

    Hey guys, this is my first thread as I just joined the forums... Anyway, I ordered a Summit, and two lipos, but now I realised that the lipos are for the smaller summit, not the big one. They are the 1400 mah
    3s lipos, but will they still work in the big summit? If not, what about if I used two parallel connectors and FOUR small lipos? I am new to the hobby, and the summit is my first rc, but I can't open it until Christmas... I'm thirteen, so if there are any other reasonably cheap but good upgrades worth doing, such as new tires, please share with me! Thank you!

    The voltage alone will not work in a stock Summit. The max voltage for the EVX2 is twin 2S LiPo's. I strongly suggest returning or reselling those that you have purchased and get proper sized LiPo's. SPC 8200's are around $50 and very popular for a reason.

    The Summit is pretty stout and solid in stock form... even the tires are hard to beat for crawling.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Here is a link:

    Shipping is going to be expensive... I did not know where you were located (a good reason to fill that out- lol).

    $50 = 31.34

    Yeah, the USPS killed international shipping of LiPo packs in 2011, so now only more expensive options are left available.

    Smaller lipos

    that sucks, why did they kill it... Lipos are vital in our hobby!
