Us the regulator. The servos will eventually burn up.

I looked at those, then decided I didn't need another charger. My lipo with regulator is awesome. 3 10 minute heats and a 30 min main, no charging at the track. Plus you can charge them during the week and they're fresh on sunday.IMO it's not worth the risk to run without a regulator.
Dirt's for racing,asphalt's for getting there!
