This hobby has some much obtainable knowledge. Basically I want to try both batteries just have to make sure I have an adapter for the connectorsThere really good budget batteries I've ran the 2s packs in my traxxas poop for months and just started running there 3s packs and can't complain I get good run times
Ah. Yeah, 3S is 3S. If your truck can handle 3S, then the only things you need to be concerned are the connector, the C rating (what's the minimum your truck needs) and the dimensions. As stated, the C rating and MAH rating are for what the battery is capable of delivering. The S is the voltage it supplies. If your truck is only 2S compatible, then a 3S will either cook it or it won't work at all, regardless of the C or MAH.As in power the little blx100. That's just what I was told.
Yes, need to make sure that you meet or exceed the minimum C rating for your car. Not only can you damage your battery but your ESC.....Good point CrashBoomOne more thing to clarify, the battery has to also able to supply enough instantaneous current (amps), which is where C-rating comes in.
Let's see the carnage pic.HRB batteries, the "cheap amazon" batteries is what everyone at the airfield calls them. They are very popular with the plane guys. My uncle lost a plane due to an HRB battery failure, but we don't have to worry about that on the surface side. I have a great picture of the fuselage of his plane stuck in the tree though lol.
Yeah I can use 3s, I'll have to do some research to see if all that power would burn my gears etc...Ah. Yeah, 3S is 3S.

Well I'm in Wisconsin wind chill 13 so I don't have to worry about heat until July- August and that's only 80s to 93 with humidityMy stampede 4x4 is 2S or 3S capable, but from what I've read, there are things you should do if you want to run 3S primarily. With even 2S, I had issues with axles twisting off on me. I've upgraded those, put a center diff in and currently run 3S, but I have a feeling, heat will be my issue when it's warm out. I've only been running 3S in it for a month or so and it's been 50F or lower outside. I don't run the stock esc/motor in it anyway. It's been fine so far and tons of fun. So, if heat is an issue... then I'll be looking at a motor and esc upgrade in the spring.
This is a screenshot view from my uncle's fpv goggles before the HRB battery took a dump. That is my F-86 above him.Let's see the carnage pic.
