    Lipos with 65C Rating?

    Just want to know, a 2s lipo 6500 Mah that has a 65C rating be okay to operate with the VXL Rustler without over heating anything? And would I be looking at more speed and power?

    it wont over heat anything. i dont think you will get an increase in speed but maybe just a little more get up and go.

    A C-rating of a battery can only be too low for a combo, never too high.

    I run that battery on a xl5 brushed motor with no problems..I watch my heat but I haven't had a problem yet so I don't think it will hurt your vxl...the 65c rating will give you just a little more punch

    The motor and ESC won't take any more juice than they can handle. You might see a small performance improvement.
    Make it idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot
