My son is driving 2wd Slash VXL in training mode using 8.4v NiMH 5000mah.
Would he get more run time from a 7.4v Lipo 5000mah?
I understand that losing 1.0 volt from 8.4volt to 7.4volt will slow it down a little, which he could use. The question is, will We gain any run time since they are both 5000mah?

Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
make sure your son knows the in's and outs of a lippo.. Was at my local hobby store yesterday and a friend of mine and his sone were looking at lipo's. After listening to the sales pitch i caught up with them outside and told them to do some reasearch first and make sure they are comfortable with lipo before buying. the way the hobby shop explained it to them they thought they were just plug and play like a nimh
