2s wont cause any issues stock (am or 2.4ghz), but 3s with the 2.4ghz setup may cause over heating issues. People usually add cooling fans, heat sinks, aluminium motor mounts, etc to help with the over heating issue.

I havent changed my gearing from stock (12t pinion and what ever the stock spur is), but with the aluminium motor mount and cooling fan everything stays rather cool.

EDIT: Also I use the 8750kv LOSI motor
Thanks, I ordered a few HK 2S batteries that should fit, that'll be plenty for me. I also got a 2S and 3S audio alarm since there is no LVC in the ESC or batteries I got.

If I 3S, I'll keep in mind the motor mount and fan.

I'm still not so great with the whole motor kv rating thing... what would be the point of using their ~10kv motor vs. the stock 8.7kv motor?
