Default Need help lipo battery?

Hi guys I need some help I'm new to this whole thing. I have a losi micro dt and I wanted it to go faster and get longer run time. Someone told me to get a lipo battery to do just that. So I did. I ordered a xcelorin 7.4v 300mah 2s 15c battery pack an charger. I was told I don't need any mods for this to work and on the package it says the same thing. After charging the battery I put it in and my dt drove for like 10 seconds then just stopped. The front wheels will turn but no moving forward or back. If I shut it off for 10secs in will run for like 2 seconds and do the same thing. Can someone help me out please I'd really appreciate it thanks.

Prob screwed up the stock electronics or thermal shutoff. When going lipo, you should also go with new rx/servo/brushless motor.

As a suggestion, you prob will get more feedback at microtforum.com

sounds like the esc couldn't handle it...... do you run some type of low voltage alarm?

No I mean the car still works its just after like 5 seconds on the lipo it dosent move any more it just stops. If I turn the car off then back on and it dose the same thing goes for like 5 seconds then stops. So I'm guessing the esc is still good other wise it wouldn't work at all correct?
