Four seems to be the best though. I currently have three and can only two at once on my charger. I get backed up often and I charge at a conservative 8 amps. Running mod class.So I often have to wait for batteries.

Agreed. I used to carry only 2 lipos for my ebugg but sometimes i practiced a little longer and my heat was up first and i didnt have a battery to use... 4 is what i used for short coarse and that was perfect. Never had a shortage of practice time and was always ready to run.

Is anyone running modified racing with 25c lipo packs? Hows the speed? I have a 3800kv mmp setup from my sct that im thinking about using instead of 17.5 spec.

If you are looking for the 45$ mark you can get the Turnigy
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=28647
or
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...h=turnigy 4200

I have been thinking on trying a Vant . http://thebarnfloor.com/catalog/prod...8#.VTFEgWF0yos

Wow huh

I charge at 6 amps 2 packs per car... I'm never waiting on a pack. Maybe if I practice on one pack for like 15 min. Once racing starts I only use like 1800mah at most.

Charge at a higher rate. I routinely charge at 16amp (about 4c)with no issues.

I have one of their packs, and I cannot tell the difference, It cycles on my gfx only slightly less average voltage and my team scream pack.

True. Once qualifiers start only 2 batteries are needed. I guess I was suggesting for practicing and tuning times.

In my B5m I typically use the Reedy 4100 shortys. I do have a couple wolf pack shortys I use as well in the 44.3

In the T5 I use the 5200 sq pack

I have 2 of each listed above. They came with my Rc10B5r when I bought it. The 2 nano have more punch. Later I bought their newer 4600 Shorty at 90c. making it the best of the 5 batts I use. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...strSearch=4600

I don't have another brand to compare to. Only a 25c saddle pack that came with my 44.2 and it seems weak vs. the other saddle set I have that is Turnigy.

I've been using the vant 4600 mah Shorty's. Lots of punch for stock class and last a long time for practice packs. Cheap and great performance. Can't complain.
