    Cool Will at 11.1 volt battery work in a stampede 4x4 vxl?

    The battery is 5200 mAh, 50C, 3s, and 11.1 volts. Will it work in a stampede 4x4 vxl with a heatsink and fan? I'm really hoping it will since I already ordered it.

    11.1V is 3S...so, yes.

    Like Panther6834 said it will work.

    But,i would make sure to have a fan to the ESC.
    Monitor the temps of the motor - change your gearing if necesarry
    Be easy on the throttle - the stock drivetrains snap easily on 3S.

    You will need to gear the pinion down or things are going to overheat really quickly.

    Exactly, on both points...even though I almost always run only 2S, to of the first upgrades I did on my Rusty 4x4 was replaced the front & rear axles with steel CVDs, and install the ESC fan.

    Additionally, if you're planning on doing any...and, I DO mean ANY...jumps, you want to worker replace the stock plastic shock caps with the optional aluminum caps, or replace the shocks work aluminum-bodied shocks. If you don't do one of these steps, I GUARANTEE your plastic caps WILL pop off, ending your fun for the time being. If money is a 'problem', and since the greatest landing impact is usually to the front, I'd suggest replacing the front shocks with aluminum-bodied shocks, and replacing just the caps (with aluminum caps) on the rear.

    Battery Tray Dimensions: 142mm x 48.5mm x 23mm or 25mm.

    I run Apex velcro straps on all my rcs that way I can accommodate any height battery. Does require you to put a slot in chassis, you only need one slot in middle closer to center drive in batt tray and run it around side. You'll love it once you commit to it lol.
