    Question PROTEK 4100mah 3s lipo/lihv

    Hey guys first post love my trx 4. I saw online videos of people running this https://www.amainhobbies.com/protek-...BoCQdsQAvD_BwE
    Is this battery too much for the stock speed control? My esc seems to be shutting off sometime and other times it wont even turn on. I saw several people saying they run this with no issues. Just wondering if this is damaging the speed control.

    It should be fine, it's only 3S, and at 4100mha, you should get an hour to 1.5 hours of run time.

    The shut-off issue might be heat related, how warm is your ESC and motor when it is doing this?

    I run that pack in my Sport. It should not be causing any trouble with your esc. It's a great pack and I get 3 1/2 hours of run time out of mine. That's with a Holmes Hobbies ESC and brushed 10turn 550 can motor.
    You may want to contact Traxxas directly with your issue. Good luck!
