Default RE: burning out motor

This might be answered better in the electric discussion section.
I'm surprised the instructions say 11.1 volts into a 7 volt motor. I've been using an 8 cell 2,000 mah NiMh 9.6 packs for my 400 and 480 motors. Advancing the timing on the 6v 400 or 7v 480 motor, the 9.6v makes it scream but cuts the life in half. Your 3c pack works much better on the brushless system. Is your pack the 10, 12, 15 or 20c dump rate ?
