Yeah they will, they are designed to run of straight 2s lipo. So no issues at all.

From my understanding it is only when you go up to a 3s that you start to have issues.

i run my 3racing winch off a small 6v nm battery under the bonnet of the hilux. that way i get no issues with draining the main battery if you are worried.

The winches themselves are fine, just clean & lube the gear box after you've been out bogging. The control units dont like wanter at all, so keep them high & dry and it'll be fine.

the battery im gunna power the winch off is a small losi micro lipo battery mounted inside a tictac box with the toggle switch inside it, wire down to a plug and hook it up like a plug in winch not remote.....

(i dont have a 3rd channel on my controller and dont have a wireless winch)

my 3racing winch still looks like new and shes been drenched many times......

very neat....except when the front of your truck is buried down in the mud how do you get at the plug ? not allowed to touch your truck when winching. ie lift it up to plug the switch in.

had you thought about mounting the plug a little higher, somewhere where it wont get filled with mud and dirt and be readily accessable if need be.

otherwise very ingenious and I have learnt something very cool. cheers

yup, after i took the shots and actually looked at it i thought it might need to be re-located, thinken about using the fuel cap on the fake tank on the honcho tray
