batt. weight vs runtime in a 1/8th. racing
Whats everyones opinion on the largest pack for a 1/8th buggy used for racing?
Our conversions are generally heavier to begin with so at what point does the wieght of the battery start hurting laptimes?
my old ofna conversion was using a 4s 6300mah pack(in a very odd configuration) it was fast but it was obviously heavier than needed and felt heavy in the corners.
my x-ray xb8 has a 4s 4200mah pack in it, it wieghs less and handles better(the ofna was pretty sloppy so thats a factor too). I haven't raced it yet, but I will this summer.
I'm thinking that 4s 4000-4500mah is about the limit for competetive racing.(about 500grams) so for 5s I guess that would be arond 3800mah and 3s would be 5000?
What do you think.
