    I wouldn't use it. The VXL can pull some large amps that I don't think that battery will be able to safely supply.

    EDIT: I thought you meant for your car. For a small fan it should be all right.

    Haha I'll give you credit. I rememeber when I took my Old Titan and purposely burned it out (went to a wall and floored it, leaving the wheels spinning) I was upset when it went out in 25 seconds But it was cool to see go up in smoke

    Atleast you didnt do what my dad did with an old electric motor when he was a kid. He got a wall socket plug from an old lamp and spliced the wires, hooking up the positive and negative to the motor. He plugged it in and it literaly exploded. He said it turned really fast then BAM!

    Yah, I actually was able to take mine back. Too bad, they were pretty fun. Lol, I had rechargeable batterys, the upgraded suspension, the tire kit, the lowering kit, the upgraded motor, the heatsink, and different gearing. I even ade a track in my basement by bending dry wall cornering and taping it down. My friend had a mustang and I had the G35, and we would race on the track and do drifting. Man, good stuff...

    No.... I got the idea from him... Good fun! Almost as fun as attacking jangifying your car with a cutting wheel and having it blow up like a bloody grenade.
