I'll post some pics soon. I changed/modded some more things. The truck is working great right now. I took 1st in our local race this past Sunday. It was our first race with the TT's. I should have finished 2nd but johnathon Hernandez (caster, castle and phantom) thermaled with 30 seconds to go. I'll take the first spot though. Lol

Yeah, it's not cheap to do this. Hobbyking has some flightmax saddle packs. Flightmax are their worst brand/cells that they have though. I opted to pay the money and get decent cells.

They are the worst of all kind of packs?(both saddle and others)
All 7 2s lipos I have are flightmax and they are all very good.What about turnigy?(if all kind of flightmax lipos are rubbish)

i prefer my turnigies, more oomph with lesser c written on pack and more mah, turnigies are always rather underrated.

Their tabs are super thin. They heat up more than the Rhino's and Turnigy's. Turnigy's have the best cells that hobbyking carries.

You won't regret it. You will also notice that your cars will have almost double the punch.

the turnigy packs are awsome. i have 2 2s 5200mah packs and they always charge up to around 5350mah and the punch seems dead on or better than some high end brands

Bro, take our word for it. There are dumb people out there, IE; me, who have tried them all. Turnigy cells are the best out of them.

I'll chime in for what it's worth. I've got 5 2s lipos. 3 are flightmaxs and 2 are turnigys. I wish I 5 turnigys and none of the flightmaxs.

It's weird, on Hobbyking, everyone raves about the flightmaxs, and there's alot of bad stuff said about the turnigys.

My turnigys have alot more punch.

Angry Flightmax is...

I just traded an old motor for two small 2s flightmax packs to run in my Vendetta since my only other batt was a 2s Turnigy 1300mah Nano-tech. And I dont think Ill be putting either Flightmax back in my Detta. Absolute Crap, might as well be Nimhs.
