Default Driving a electric car at any temperature

Is it safe to drive a electric car with battery Ansmann Racing Voltage 7.2 mAh 3000 at any temperature or will it damage the battery or can I damage the ESC and motor by driving the car at low temperatures

Depends what your definition of low or high temperatures is...

Yea, I don't seen why not. Back in my Nicad days I drove outside in the snow quite frequently with no issues. Nimh should be the same. I suspect you'll be fine.

You may tend to break more parts in cold weather as the plastics will be more brittle. You may also not get as much punch out of your batteries. Otherwise, have fun!
