Default TRX-4 HV

Hi Guys.

Traxxas support sucks..

Can you safely run a lipo Hv on the XL5 hv esc?

Traxxas kept telling me yes a 3 cell lipo will work..grr that wasn't the question I want to know if a Lipo HV will be OK?

The ESC is rated for a tops of 11.1V... I think you can get away with it since the "HV" batteries are just a slight amount higher and I'm sure there's some built in wiggle room, but technically it is above the max rated voltage. Run at your own risk.

Given that the stock Traxxas electronics don’t have the best reputation for reliability, I’d try it. My kids beat the dog crap out of their TRX4 Sports and the electronics never failed. Mine failed on the 2nd casual trail run.
