Switching the battery types

Also when I use a partially charged Hyperion 2S LIPO (storage charge) everything works fine. Is there some kind of over voltage protection built into the esc? These cars are supposed to work on a 2S LIPO battery. Some have even used 3S batts. Any ideas?

Thanks, Kim
Our new Losi racing team we founded in our company (7 Losis 1:24 Brushless 4WD) knows the same problems when we switch the battery types back and forth.
No straight solution, but switching on and off the car and the transmitter a couple of times seems to do the trick.
