Default New to Lipos

I've got a TC3 converted to Late Model dirt oval running a Traxxas XL10 with a Orion Method 10t. Im wondering what all would I need to switch to Lipo power? I've got a Super Brain 977 charger to do the charging with.

You can use the lipo with your current set-up and should add a LVC (low voltage cut-off) to protect the battery from dischargeing too low. Check Novak, dimesion engineering, ect. for lcv.

Oops, I fogot to mention to size the battery large enough so it will not over discharge amps (current)

Cycleeric,

Ask around in the Car forums.....someone there might be running a similar set-up and would be able to tell you what will work and what won't. Really with out knowing how many amps that set-up will pull with the current gearing I can't safely tell you which pack to go with. I don't want you to ruin your equipment or a Li-Po pack.
