    Question EVX-2 w/ LVD

    So, was bashing yesterday and my LVD kicked on. Seemed kind of quick, so I went inside and checked the battery voltage. Both packs (2s) were at 3.8. Isn't this a little low for it to be going into half throttle mode? My VXL will run them down closer to 3.4 before LVD kicks in.

    Is there a way to adjust the threshold?

    Thanks in advance...

    Ehh, ya put it in NImh mode and buy a LVA?

    sometimes, with low c batteries, the voltage drops under throttle, and then comes back up when you take the load off. this is what triggered your LVC i think

    Ya, even my 65c trips the LVA when I nail it near the end of its cycle.

    What MAH are your 25C LiPo's?

    How much run time are you getting before the LVD kicks in?

    They are 5800mah 25c traxxas packs...probably get a good 20 minutes of trigger heavy bashing...

    Yeah that seems a little short. Maybe the lower c rating is the cause.

    Are you balance charging them? Check the voltage on them when they are finished charging. A good 2s LiPo should take around 8.4 volts
