Default Battery Question

Im thinking about going LIpo in my 2.0 truggy. Im running the JR 9100 T and S servos. Will I have to use a regulator or will these sevos handle the voltage?

I'm pretty sure you will need a regulator

it will take little time to do burn up but will eventually. Use the regulator.

Or why not just a LiFe battery and not worry about the hassle of Lipo?

You have to use a regulator or you will burn those up. Unless you go to the hvs and hvt then no regulator needed.
