    i bet i can catch them on fire
    really not much to worry about, just educate yourself on proper lipo handling and get a lipo sack

    dont you only have a stampede with vxl and your dropping a 3s into it have you ever ran lipos you will have insta pizza cutter tires i have a friend that dropped a 50c 3s into his stampede vxl 2wd and it did flips at 65 mph
    full throttle or else it must be broke but breaking it is just another reason to build it bigger and better than before!

    if you want over 60mph you need 3s but your going to have to do modds to keep the kit on the ground.... dont worry about lipo fires just watch the pack and see if it is puffing if it is dont use it any more... make sure the connectors are solderd on well because if the pack shorts it will go poof so dont worry. but most people that have lipo fires dont take care of there stuff at all or the pack is faulty... but i have heard of maxamps stuff blowing up in the kit... they replace the pack but not the car.

    Lipos are not dangerous. It's how people handle them that make them dangerous. As long as you take the time to educate yourself so you are comfortable with lipos, you won't have a problem with them.

    Get as much knowledge as you can handle.
    Get a GOOD charger.
    Get a lipo sack or equivalent.
    Volt Up. Gear Down.
