you betcha. Keep in mind the 3200 is "useable" where as in NiMh it is "total" capacity. I have ran a 3200 in offroad for 8 minuets with a 6.5 and only put 2200 back into it

i ran the 3200 with a orion 3.5 motor today for 5 minutes (set timer on radio and stopped at 5 minutes) and it took 2590milliamps back in. That was on a TC

I am wondering if the LiPo discharge rate specification is a factor in this type of use.
The 3200 is a 20C battery and if I have understood correctly the max discharge current should not be more than 20 x 3,2 = 64 amps.
The max. current draw of those motors surely is much more but it's transient.

Is it OK to take out of a LiPo peak amperages that much exceed the batterys C-rate?

I know I've seen LiPo specs stating these batteries are capable of short high amperage bursts around 100 amps. I'm suring using a 3.5 BL motor that under the right conditions (speed and traction) that the motor could easily pull a quick burst exceeding the C-rating. The C-Rating is the constant safe amp draw rating, not max/peak amps.
