    Going Lipo

    I have a brushed traxxas slash 2wd with an xl-5 esc. I was looking at lipo batteries and was wondering if i should switch to lipo. I know i can only go to 8.4 volts. 2s lipo would work, but should i wait and get a 3s once i go brushless?

    I don't know. I have a 3 year old Slash 2wd and I have run it on 2s LiPo for its whole life. I plan on going brushless soon (in the next year or so), but I have not looked into that. I will probably stay 2s, but who knows?

    P.S. batteries are expensive tho so I might just stay 2s

    Thanks! I might stay brushed for a bit because the brushless system is expensive. Also, batteries are expensive. I think i'll go with a 2s lipo for now. I mean, i can still run it with the 2s once i get the VXL, it just won't be as fun as 3s.


    P.S. I have had my truck for 3 years too. I just made an account because my old account had an email that i deleted.

    Welcome Back !
    Yeah batteries are pricey but if you eventually you upgrade to brushless you can still run 2s . I run brushless on 2s all the time . It’s plenty fast
