Exclamation Will 4000mah lipo go in a stock brushed hsp brontosaurus?

Hello this is my first thread and I have 3x 4000mah hardcase lipo's from my old brushless car but that isn't functional yet since I haven't put the esc in it but my question is will my 3x 4000mah lipo's go into a stock brushed hsp brontosaurus without blowing or frying anything (I don't want to put all in at one time)
NOTE: on the battery compartment it had a sticker saying do not exceed 3600mah ni-mh but does that mean I can't have lipo?

I have not read it all myself, but I see a review and discussion about your truck here.

The concern on your battery is the voltage, the mAh rating is not a worry as long as the battery will fit in the truck. So research the dimensions of the battery vs what you have space for. All you will see changed by going from 3600 mAh to 4000 mAh is a little more runtime, and that is not a bad thing.

I would avoid lipo unless your electronics are rated for it... not just a risk of burning your car to the ground, but without a low voltage cutoff you have a real good chance of simply ruining the lipo so it will not accept a charge any more.

Thanks for the reply I disagree with that statement I was smashing my old car everywhere on jumps even into some poles (my bad) and the only thing that ever went wrong is me breaking the esc, stripping the pinion and spur gears and bending the shock towers but I do agree that sometimes the screws come loose and sometimes fall out the only one that fell out of mine was one of the screws from the plate holding the rear lower arms in but looks like I'll just stick to my ni-mh 3000mah until I upgrade to brushless.
