    If you follow the directions in the manual for Series running, no.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Running parallel packs (2s or 3s) is fine, simply doubles your runtime

    he said parallel.....


    but.... be careful on stock electronics running 3s for ewxtended amounts of time.... that heat build up can easily fry them if the vehicle isn't properly setup

    3S is close to NiMh series in voltage.

    Stop confusing the fella, he asked if 3s packs can be run in parallel

    The answer is yes

    Obviously he needs to gear the car for 3s to avoid heat issues

    Included speed pinion (23t) is a good place to start

    You may even need to drop down to a 21t
