Those are still pre-order only...same as the others. The one time I ordered a SMC shorty I got 2 of them. They both came with a bulge.

Never had that with any of my packs. They had a problem with a shipment of full sized packs back when but Danny took care of everybody and replaced the packs. Shorties I haven't had a single issue with so far and the new 100C packs have some pretty good IR's!

It's kinda hit or miss with Turnigy packs but they are pretty cheap though!

This was a few years back. I am also looking for some new shorties and cant find anything good in stock.

I just can't get myself to "pre-order" batteries without knowing a ship date, I just can't.

I've seen way to many SMC packs puff. Maybe it was a bad batch and those days are gone, I don't know. But I just can't wrap my head around Danny's comments that "all lipos puff/swell when you run them. You just notice it with ours because our cases fit so tight." (not an exact quote but you the point)

I Danny's defense, tons of people swear by SMC. I'm just not one of them.

That is exactly what I was told when my packs arrived in the 'pre-puffed' state. They stuff soo much pack into a super thin case that its going to puff. Nowadays with how the battery strap goes into the waterfall a puffed pack will create an issue...the strap needs to float in that region, not be jammed up in there. The chassis cant flex properly if the strap/pack wont let it.

Here's the inner one, which is different:

Another possibility is the spring, it looks a little weird, but hard to tell if it's the correct one or not from the picture. It should seat nicely up against the plate.
So I the nut wasnt perfect on the thread, now I changed it and I gained about 1mm...this shown setting would work perfect in slipper conditions...giving throttle and the B5 gets up about 2inch!

I also added a picture showing the distance between the spur and the motor plate!

If I leave the spring washer it looks perfect!

Still does not look right. Eventually that nut will come off.

Take the spring washer off..you don't need it. If you aren't engaging the locking part of the thread its going to come off.

I ordered one of SMC's best 2S shorties.

It arrived puffed, I cycled it easy at 15 amps up/down 6 times. Then I hit it with 40amps and it puffed hard and the IR numbers were garbage.

I'll never buy a SMC pack again.

Even if the nut hast 1mm free thread I think it would hold...I can feel the nut having grip.

Did so already

Problem solved, but the question remains: How did that happen? I tighten and fitted everythin as best as I could...there seems to be no mistake...could I use the wrong slipper hub (not the outer)?

whats funny is I bought a new 4000 too and it's cycling at 1.5 IR with 30 amp discharge, 20 amp charge.

my old 4300 packs (Not the 4400's) are still pulling low 2's

I've only used SMC so I don't have anything to compare them to.

I have not tried the new 4000s, but the packs from 18 months ago were puff monsters. And when I cycled them they are always about 400-500 mah short of the label. but for $35 what can you really expect

Your inner slipper plate/hub looks OK in the pic, the spring does tend to wear in a bit, it might just need to get broken in. Also after you scrub in the pads, you will probably have to tighten it a bit.

Did you compress that spring with pliers a few times to get it worked in? That spring does dot look compressed enough!
