Default !! Help deciding on a electronic/winch set up PLEASE !!

Ill just start out by telling you what I have and my situation.. I have a Castle Creations Sidewinder ESC, Castle BEC Set at 6V, Hitec 5955tg Servo, Hyperion 2200mah 3S Lipo, Spektrum AR500 Air RX and a 3racing winch yet to be wired up. My question is on the winch hook up mainly. I have a few options that I know about but Im not sure if they are good ones... A) Run a separate 2s Lipo for the winch only. B) Turn the BEC up to 7.0v and hope the Servo and RX will be ok. C) Run the winch at 6v and not use it to its full potential. Im sure there are other options I cannot think of off the top of my head and ANY input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Funk
