    3s Lipo Combination

    Hi,
    I have a e revo 1/16 vxl. Can i connect two batteries (1400mah, 3s lipo) in parallel, so voltage remains at 11.1v. Is it safe for the motor and esc?

    That should be fine. It will give u longer run times, but shouldnt hurt anything

    it will give longer run time than one battery, yet not double, due to weight. i d probably use one at a time.

    thanks for your help. Should I change any gearing for 3s lipo? and using one at a time, is more weight on one side, does that affect turning?

    Yes to both of those questions. You might be fine keeping the current gearing but most likely not. Only temperature will tell.
