Can I run 11.1 volt 3s lipo on stock losi micro sct?

I would like to upgrade my losi micro sct brushless version from the 2s lipos to 3s lipos. The lipo I plan on getting is 11.1 volts, 200 mah, and 3s. But keep in mind I have done no mods to the electronics. Will this battery fry the electronics if I run it without any electronic mods. Not to worried about breaking any other parts because those are an easy fix, but electronics can Take some time. And I do have a lipo charger for this.

i think the stock electronics are rated for 2s use. the xcelorin brushless esc would be a better bet.

Yes, the bl micro sct can run on 3S LiPo. If you look at the receiver/esc cover, the label says 4.8v-11.1v. I got my micro sct along with a 10250kv motor and 3S battery a few days ago, and that little truck does 40mph.

Sweet. Thanks. I heard of people who have fried their cars using 3s so I just wanted to see what you guys have to say.

i was going to ask how you mod the motor mount to fit it in there. i seem to have no luck getting my holes lined up or having the screws stay in place.

Seems hard cuz there's not a whole bunch of room on the chassis. I couldn't get it either.
