Default 3906 lipo upgrade questions / parts list

hello
looking to upgrade my 3906 to Lipos for better power and run time...

here is what i think i need...
1. i have heard these batteries fit in the 3906 : https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/...Lipo_Pack.html
2. low voltage cutout...but what?
3. lipo charger, any good economical models to reccomend?
4. any other parts?

oh and an EVX-2 ESC. is that needed or will my novak hold up?

any other tips?
thanks

I think them lipos are too long unless you make some mods.
Low voltage cut off i use the old novak smart stop. An alarm will also work to warn you when batteries are low.
the basic 50watt 4 button chargers are adequate. I've had two, one was good, the other was junk. But now i use the powerlab8 which is quite expensive.
strengthen the transmission (replace the plastic 3996 with the grinded down metal 3996X) and go with a single motor 777 or dewalt 14.4V
evx2 is much better than the orange esc.
standard hop up parts.

make sure you get the evx-2 lvd and you don't have to get the low voltage alarm
