Why would there be an issue? In series, he'd have a 2600mah 14.8v setup that would work just fine.

Looks like maybe too much as I always get real good info from Integra. How does one figure out the power of 2 lipos running together? Add the mah and volts together? I know it cant be simple as that but you know what i mean.

Ah i see how to figure it. thanks madweazl. Still wondering why it would be an issue.

15C is fine...its when the Onroad race's toss in a pair of 40C-50C 3600's that the motor's start to take a walk to the other side.

If you put the packs in parallel you will add the amp ratings and the voltage will remain the same, conversely, if wired in series the voltages will add and amperage will remain at the rating of one pack. The available watts will be higher in either situation though. I see no issue at all with it as long as you use them in series to keep the voltage up. Higher voltage will result in a higher motor speed, if you ran in parallel to get the higher amperage you'd have some slow turning motors and also the motors would get hotter.
