    1/16 Lipo questions

    I was just wondering if i could use the lipos from my merv in my 1/10 rustler (the answer will probaly be no). Im just lazy about ordering different lipos from the mail as there are almost no hobby shops within a 1hr radius.

    Maybe you can put 2 besides each other and use them parallel. Runtimes wont be great, but when they can deliver enough amps, they will work fine.

    Korn, he is asking to use 1/16 batteries in a 1/10. Not 1/10 batteries in a 1/16.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    If it's low mah the more chance (not will definitely) of the packs slightly puff more in a 1/10 scale.
    parallel them would be better.
    Google search trumps Wiki. Refer to user guide.
