Default 5.8 V on 2S Lipo

I run the car until it slow down, and later after stopping the car I test the Lipo has 5.8V open voltage.
Did I ruin the pack?

possibly not.
Give it a charge.

Most lipo batteries should be safe to go down to 2.8v per cell (5.6v)
Due to current drain and use its suggested to us 3v per cell (6v) as a minimum.
If you have a esc with a adjustable cuttoff its wise to keep it a bit higher at 3.2v per cell (6.4v)
