Default 6C Lipo LOL is it usable

I got a free lipo battery from a friend, it is from his airplane or heli...not an rc car. specs are 3500mah, 3S, 11.1V and only 6C. Can I use this on my Rustler VXL. I am currently using a 7-cell Nimah cheapo battery back. What kind of performance can I expect?

Run it, If the battery gets above 120* then it can not handle the load.

I would be very careful, these batteries can catch fire if overheated. It could make a great transmitter battery

would work on a stock rustler, probably not on a VXL. might work in some kind of mini though.
