Trinity Revtech or the white carbon. Turnigy ultimate. After 6 cycles at 20 amps up, 20 amps down, I'd hit them with 40amps down and 70 amps up. They'd settle around .6 per cell.

IR numbers have way too many variables to accurately compare one person or companies numbers to another. The only reliable information you can get and use is by comparing the numbers of different packs on your own equipment under as similar conditions as you can possibly replicate. Ambient temp, charge level, discharge level, charge and discharge rates, starting voltage, ending discharge voltage.....etc.

If everyone wants to talk about batteries, we have an entire section for that. Otherwise, none of this is B5M specific so lets get back on topic.

$$$$$$$$$ He'd need to charge a lot of cash for them. He procures the best grade 5 titanium in the USA, and no one makes a standard size rod for the rear hinge pins, so you have to cut them to length, then mill them down to the specific size. What it cost me to produce several sets in Grade 5 and small run would not be something anyone would want to resell.

I have a couple sets still. They're amazing.

You should see my selection of Parma pinions and milled 1/2 width spurs...

It's sickening some of the cool shit I have left over.

If you knew him in real life you would realize he really enjoys all of this...being a dink on the internet.

I know he does. And at times he makes valid points, while being a dink. But you know what's even better? Being able to have the final call on how much of a dink he gets to be In the end, he ain't king dink

Matt M has a firm pulse on every post I make. There's no question of if I'll get banned, it's inevitable.

The question is, what is the time frame?

So......how about that B5m....

In serious talk, Titanium hinge pins have always been sketchy...they seem to bend easier than the steelies. I would just replace your bent steel ones and quit hitting things.

Bending a hinge pin in this car is certainly a feat. This is also something that should be checked after each day of racing. I remember ripping apart a B5 alloy arm mount, and the hinge pin not bending at all.

I am speaking more from the B4 days regarding the titanium hinge pins. Those bent a lot easier than the steel stockers

I don't see a need for them (Ti). Only AE hinge I bent was in a B44, and that's not a shocker.

I obliterated the beautiful gold Ti hinge pins in my XXcr KE. So much so, I kept the stock steel hinge pins in my XXX.

Wasn't the B4 already super light?
