Default rustler LVC problems

i just bought a rustler vxl yesterday, and it runs nimh well. i have 5 2s lipos and whenever i try to run them the low voltage cutoff comes on after 20-30 seconds or so. the batts are 3200s. i measured the voltage and they read 8.x volts. they run fine with the lvc off. do i have to set the vxl speedo to run 2s vs 3s? i believe that the speedo thinks that theres supposed to be a 3s in there because they do read a little more voltage. Any ideas? Thanks

Buy a 2s lipo cut off, and run the esc on non-lvc mode

What is the C rating on your packs? The voltage cut off for 3S is 9.0v.
