Default GTB question.

I want to buy a spread spectrum GTB and orion lipo battery, but when I was looking at the specs it said that the maxium voltage was 7.2 volts and the normal battery voltage was 7.4 . Will this affect the ESC or battery?

Well...considering that a 6-cell NiMh has about a half volt more than a 2 cell Lipo...you're way good. That's a great ESC. I have 4 of them myself...and I only run Lipo.

you should be fine; after all, a peaked nimh pack is more then 7.4 volts off the charger.
