Default Info on KO Propo Twister 2 Atsushi Hara

So I dug up this old ESC I had and probably could not have run more than a couple of batteries through it. Wanna get it up and running for a little fun Tyrrell six wheeler project.

Questions though, will it be ok to power it with a 2S LiPo battery (I don't have any more NiMh)? And to run a 540 silver can, can I use as small as 16GA wire?

Thanks in advance, I didn't wanna get a whole new brushless setup for something I wasn't gonna race.

It's a KO VFS-1.

To answer your questions: yes it will work just fine on 2s - just stop as soon as the car slows down noticeably (there is no lipo cutoff).

And yes, 16AWG for a silver can on a pan car will be perfect.

Don't forget to solder the (huge) capacitor on the battery terminals.

Oh yeah the lipo cutoff. Good to know. The capacitor is still soldered onto the ESC, just gotta find the old Schottky diode (or get a new one). Thanks!
