Default 14.8v Sidewinder micro CC project

I woke up this morning and thought this might work, I wired the motors on the cliff climber in series and i am now using the sidewinder micro to power both motors. the esc and the motors do not get even warm it stays ice cold, so i thought hm lets up the voltage to 11.1v which should be here in the next couple of days. right now im using a 7.4v lipo and it has the power to climb up pretty much anything. The only drawback to series is now the truck is half of the speed of using 1 single motor on a 7.4v lipo.

I figured since the micro esc can take 4 cells BUT IS NOT WARRANTED BY CASTLE, it might be possible to run a 14.8v lipo since these are crawler motors and draw next to nothing amp wise. Need some input guys on what you think. I have been on rccrawler.com to find out some info so far so good. !!ILL BE ORDERING THE 4S LIPO IN THE NEXT HOUR!!

I'm learning with this whole 2-motor thing too. How exactly is wiring it in series? A wiring diagram or explanation would be appreciated.

Thanks for the diagram. So series wiring gives you less voltage but more current? Mines wires parallel. I'm a bit ignorant when it comes to electical.
