Default Traxxas Blast with 2S Lipo?

I just got a new Traxxas Blast boat. The boat comes with a 3000mah 7.2v 6-cell NIMH pack. My 5000mah 2s Lipo packs fit perfect in the battery tray and are actually lighter than the stock pack.

The stock ESC is not "Lipo compatible" but I believe that just refers to it not having an LVC. I plan to use an LVA with the 2s Lipo so that isn't really an issue.

Traxxas says that the boat also should not be used with 8.4v Nimh packs. Not sure why exactly. I know that a 2S lipo is 8.4v at full charge.

Is there any reason why a 2S Lipo (w/ LVA), along with common-sense throttle control, wouldn't work with the Nautica ESC in this boat?
