liHV is no different chemically from a lipo. So they would use the same cutoff. FYI, liHV is just a marketing buzzword to sell more lipos. They tried it in drone racing a few years ago and everyone caught on pretty quick.

Racing or bashing? Lower for racing to account for sag. Higher for bashing since you're not likely to pay attention to run time. Say 3.5v. Best thing to do is not rely on cut off and set a timer in your radio if you have that option. On my spektrum dx5c I have a count-up timer set to my throttle and I know generally my packs last about 12 minutes.

I was going to try and race the car.
I set the LVC to 13.2v which would equate to 3.3v per cell.

I need to read the manual of the 7px to add a timer to one of the many buttons/switches
