  1. Kraton 6s
  2. Senton 6s
  3. Typhon 6s
4 or 6 only
I have ran 3s in my Senton, Typhon and Kraton without any problems and the low voltage still works with it. Maybe the older red BLX180 couldn't but all of mine have the newer black BLX185. I believe that the BLX185 even says right on it 3s-6s. I have even ran 2s but then I need to run an external low voltage alarm as the ESC isn't capable of reading 2s.

I stand corrected, Didn't know it would run on 3s. I would think it would be a lil slow on 3s.

I run my Blx185 on 2s also on a Kraton with a 4092 Leo,can still wheelie.When someone ask to try my Kraton its always on 2s!With a 5s and a 17t pinion with the Leo 1730 motor i get about the same speed as a 6s Kraton with 16t.Also running Badlands Mx38 tires and am carefull with ballooning,have worn the front of the knobbies down.

Usually you want to have enough voltage to move the weight of the RC. 1/8 scale tend to need at least 4S. If they are on the heavy side.
