I had the same rusty before. It can't hurt to the leave the stock gearing in it. I will say make sure you have a newer version XL-5 ESC with the "low voltage detection". It will say in small letters on the top of the ESC below the button. Have fun.

+1...had the slash w/xl5 and had no issues running a lipo, but as said previously it will help out if u have the low voltage detection esc that way u dont destroy ur truck or batt running the lipo...just double check and c if u do or dont have that esc...if u dont just keep an eye on the temp and run time

if you dont have the newer version, i simple low voltage alarm can be bought off ebay for real cheap... $5

+1 - just be sur eto get and use some kind of lipo overdischarge protection.

Without, it's easy to forget and damage a lipo.
