Is there anybody using 11.1 voltage to run there tanks ? Upon reading few older posts on uk forum , a few of them say they do , but didn't say on the boards they use , be it a tamiya, SLU , asp , IBU, or clark , just wondering if I can run voltage thru a clark , I'm saying a lipo 11.1 , 3s , fast discharge, as a newbie I'd love the horsepower gain but not burn a board out , most of my primary tanks are Clarks , any answers would be helpful , thanks

I'd be very careful with this, they tend to run hot enough on summer days anyway. I know Mike love's his LiPo but I'm even hesitant to run them compared to the regular 7.2v NiCad / NiMH

IBU will support 3S lipos. I have burnt enough clark off freshly charged 2S lipos that I am convinced you cannot use 3S with them. Besides, their specs is 7.2v so there is no reason to plug a 3S into them.
