    2s on the VXL is no problem. If it heats up, just lower your gearing.

    I've been running a 3s 5000 in mine. ESC stone cold, but my motor gets hot no matter what pinion I run. Running a stock 19t now. Motor gets around 175 to 185 degrees. Hopefully I can believe my temp gun! So 2s should be fine. Watch the 3s though.

    U should be worried if you are running A 4s Lipo
    If nobody comes back from the future to stop you, how bad of a decision can it be?
