Can the stock rs4 motor handle 7.2v?

I just ordered a few 1400mah 6cell 7.2v packs from towerhobbies, as they didn't have any 5cell packs.

I was just wondering if the stock motor is ok on 7.2v?

The stock motor will easily handle 6-cell packs but it will get a bit hot. Just be sure to let it cool down once in a while. They are cheap to replace anyway so giver.

You can also put a small heatsink on the motor as well, this will keep motor temps down.

It runs fine @ 7.2 volt but do not use the 13 pinion, be sure to use the more rpm and not the torque you get with one cell extra.
