    Will provide power that sits between 2s and 3s lipo with less runtime for the same physical sized pack

    If you allready have the pack cant you work out the runtime yourself ?

    What gearing are you using ?
    What wheels / tires are you running ?

    With stock 13/54 gearing and stock wheels / tires a 3s life pack would be good for 38 mph or so

    Its all good dude, you never said you didnt own a car

    You will need to run the ESC in nimh mode to avoid lvc cutting in

    I'm guessing runtime would be 15 - 20 mins or so based on the capacity

    well for speed just figure that a life is 89% as much voltage as lipo so if my truck goes 60mph with 3cell lipo it should go about 53-54 with 3cell life.
    2 cell lipo is 40mph.

    He wasnt suggesting he hit 60 mph

    He was just using an example that the 3s life packs will reach 89% of the speed of a 3s lipo pack

    Different example with stock gearing 13/54

    46 mph 3s lipo = 41 mph 3s life
