    Should I upgrade battery?

    Hello all I have a 2wd slash with a redback racing 3450KV brushless motor and 60A ESC combo with a Redback 7 cell 8.4V 5000mah nimh. Should I upgrade battery?

    I know nothing about that motor and esc but if they can handle 2s or 3s lipid they would completely change how it drives.

    So looked up your motor and esc and I canít seem to find any specs on it so can you look on the instructions if you have them and see what the esc can run 2s or 3s

    Those both supposedly say they can run 3s, so you should be fine running 2s at least. I say get some lipos, not only will your power increase, but you'll also get better runtimes too.

    It looks like it will fit, but I don't know anything about HRB. The specks seem decent, so I'd say try one and see how it goes. Hopefully someone who knows about this brand can answer.
