Default Associated Starter Box-LiPo too much?

Hello everyone, I use a Team Associated Starter box with two nimh batteries to start my NTC3. I am thinking of replacing the nimh batteries with a single LiPo battery, but since the box is only run by one motor I am not sure whether using a LiPo could possible be too much and could damage the motor.

Would the motor be safe using a LiPo, or would I risk damaging it?

Default LIPO

No Problems, A lot of guys went to lipo. 4s packs are the choice. Your LHS can fix you up.
