Default HELP!!! lipo cutoffs?????????

I am interested in purchasing the smart stop lipo cutoff by Team Novak. However I am unsure of which one to purchase? I have the new 16.8v Traxxas E-Maxx with two Maxamps 6000mah 2s 7.2v lipos. My question is do I need 2 of the 2s smart stops?, And if so how do I connect them both between the reciever and ESC? Or do I need just 1 ofe the 4s Smartstop cutoff's? Please Help!!

Get one for a 2S pack and connect it to the pack that supplies the servo's as well as the motor that will be the one to drain first.

Thanks Jason!!!

Does this apply only if the batteries have an exact charge? What do I need to do to completely protect the batteries against a low voltage state?

You need to keep charging the packs the same amount of times and always use them only after they have both been charged this will ensure that you always hit a safe LVC point. Never run the rig with one pack half discharged and the other full.
