DO NOT put your 1600 LiPOs in your slash. Different internal wiring, not meant for anything BUT a 1/18th scale (well, maybe a 1/14 Recoil sized touring car). Get the right thing - a 4000-5000 2S LiPo 20C or larger.

it is still 7.4v though. I dont see why it would hurt it other than the run time will be crazy low compared to a 4 or 5000

If your going for extended run times with the 7000-9000mah batteries you might end up cooking the motor

well I was planning on running in the stock spec class at my LHS tomorrow with my Slash since I havent gotten to race it yet and all I have are thw 1600 Mah lipos from my 18t's but I guess I cant run them in my Slash so I wont get to race until I find a larger Mah pack. Unless someone else chimes in on this.

What kind of Mah would I use up in my stock Slash in about a 5 minute race?
