Im gunna say about 30mph. You can put a lipo cut off in and then run twin lipos. Im not sure the specs on the esc but you might not be able to run lipos.

Yeah because you have to buy the separate lipo cut off device. Most esc's can handle using lipos so i assume it can. Not positives though?

Yes - volts are volts and as long as the diff in lipo volltage (8.4v vs 7.2v etc) is within the esc capability, it'll run lipo. The real issue is protecting the lipo from overdischarging. Most brushed esc don't feature any kind of lvc.

Yeah you can get a lipo cut off for like $30-$40. Then you wont need to worry about the battery over discharging.
