    Hi I was wondering if I could put a 12s lipo (4 3s) in an x01 or would that kill the esc?? I know how to wire it so don't worry about that.

    if you are using the esc that comes with the XO1 its rating is 18 NiCad/NiMH 6s LiPo (max: 25.2 volts)
    other than that you would have to check the specs on the esc that you have.
    but if you have the stock setup I would recommend that you DO NOT .
    of course you might want to get a second opinion.
    I went to the doctor and he told me that I have type 2 diabetes I told him that I want a second opinion
    he said you are ugly too.lol maybe their are motor esc setups out there that will handle 12s but the stock xo1 is not one that is rated for 12s. good luck.

    no problem. post some pictures or video of your project It sounds interesting.
    I wanted to build a terminator car but I cannot afford an xo1
    so I just saved the idea notes for when I can.
