I have a stock Merv vxl.
What LiPo setup will be best to run this in parallel?
I will be adding a heat sink and fan to the motor.

Should I just run one batt at a time or two in parallel?

2s, with a gearing change to at least the 23 tooth pinion..... the stock esc just doesn't handle the extra power well
I really like spc racing's lipos. They are reasonable and good quality. I have ***** *********'s as well, but they are bigger and come from hong kong so they take awhile to get here. The SPC's ship with traxxas connector and are in the states. Good luck.
I like running with a single lipo. Running two in parallel adds weight and does double the run time bu *** only takes a minute if that to swap in the second battery when the first one dies. Then if you want you can start charging your first battery while you are running the second.

I like a 25T pinion with 2 cell
series is putting 2 lipos together with a series connector which results in 4 cell, demon speed, and destruction of stock electronics
I run two 2s BOOST lipos in parrallel I'm kinda the reverse of DAD as a 40min run on two cells in parallel is usually enough for the kids so I don't have to get my hands dirty and cold changing batteries which, to be Frank, are little blighters to get out, especially when muddy. What we often do is run 2xstock in parallel on 23t as a 20-30min warm up (my kids are young so tend to crash a fair bit) then, because these are easy to get out, swap to 2x2s lipo in parallel on the same gearing. Now that we mostly run dirt paws we've dropped down to an 18t pinion - gives similar top speed and acceleration due to larger diameter wheels (nearly 4inch) - blew one or two escs trying to find right gearing lol - secret is......buy a temp guage ;0)
The Time I Enjoy Wasting Is Not Time Wasted
Time I enjoy wasting is not time wasted
2s x2 is 4s, and that is jsut going to fry the stock system
so far, mine has been pretty robust on 2 cell lipo
Hi, so running a single 2s with stock gearing is ok for the stock esc?
I think the stock setup is fine myself and being waterproof is a bonus. putting 3s and maxing it out to me is just asking for problems.
