    Questions for new MERV setup

    Just bought a 1/16 E-Revo VXL. bought the extra NiMH 7.2 volt, but also two 1600MAH 20C 3S Lipos to run in parallel. Will that burn up the flywheel? And if so, whats a good gearing setup so I'm not constantly burning through gears?

    By flywheel i assume you mean the clutch.
    if the clutch is slipping too much it will melt with any battery. (with 3S you will need to tighten it up a bit for sure)
    I run 3s all the time and only melted one clutch (because i was letting it slip for too long), tightened the new one a bit more - and zero issues.
    also you will need to shim your diffs to keep the gears from stripping - search for diff shimming to learn how if your not familiar

    I gear down with 3S to keep temps down but unless your changing tire sizes - the stock gearing (with smaller of the 2 pinions) should be just fine on 3S
