I am currently working on my rapidstrike and will be using a liPo and extreme 180 motors for the flywheels. What I want to know now is should I connect the liPo to the dart pusher motor or should I wire the dart pusher motor to ultrafires.

That mostly depends on how fast you want it to shoot. At higher voltages, you'll have a harder time controlling how many darts you shoot when you pull the trigger. The general consensus seems to be that a 3 cell LiPo (11.1V nominal) is right around the point that it is too fast to easily control. If you're running a 2 cell pack (7.4V nominal), you'll probably be fine if you connect the flywheels and pusher motor to the same pack.
