Why are you afraid to run Lipo with your brushed motor? Its just an urban myth that "you can't run Lipo packs with Brushed motors". Of course you can. I've recently seen this misinformation elsewhere on AF. I addressed that thread also.
As long as the ESC can handle Lipo with a LVC (low voltage cutoff) then you are easily good to go. If the ESC doesn't have Lipo LVC setting you can still run it using a cheap voltage alarm to monitor voltage. I even run Lipo on my vintage Tekin 420F ESC thats 25 years old. Brushed motors can handle 3S. I do it all day long.:cool: Lipos run longer, are more efficient and dollar for dollar are less expensive than Old School nimpacks. Nimpacks are overpriced these days like it is made of gold or something. Nimpacks for RC's are not in demand these days, so those that DO sell them mark them up. A waste of money considering Lipo is where its at for mainstream RC rigs.
