    Hi.

    Iam using a buzzer on my other RC from another brand, but is traxxas low voltage 50% and cutoff secure to use without the buzzer?

    It is secure, the cut off system works well.

    I use an SMC alarm on each battery.

    Like Juanmacine said, it works very well. I believe there are two levels of low voltage protection, stage 1 LVC and stage 2 LVC. The first stage cuts your car to 50% throttle so you can drive back safely, then the second stage completely cuts off throttle. I say "believe" because I have never actually had my car go into LVC, I have driven my E-revo 2.0 on 6s for an hour and still not gotten low enough for LVC to kick in (that is with my car driving beside me as I walk, and occasionally opening up the throttle).

    You can also get the Traxxas Bluetooth module and use the app to see your car's voltage. It will show you the batteries charge and you can set an alarm from there so if your batteries get below a certain voltage it will alert you through the app (you do have to have the app open though).
    The present is theirs; the future, is mine.

    You are correct.

    On lvc stage 1 and 2. Stage 2 still gives you steering

    The battery connector doesn't matter, at least not in my experience.

    I also don't have a phone mount so I never use Traxxas link either.
