I'm running the A Spec shorties in mod. Great packs, comparable to any of the top brands.

the nanotech packs are decent for mod. After a few months, their IR seems to climb more so than higher quality packs. I only use 1 pack per car myself. The vant are ok, I just dislike the extra holes. Their IR is a little high than the nanotechs out of the box. again for mod, they are fine and fine short term for stock.

I don't know why you guys buy those junk batteries when you can get SMCs domestically for the same price or cheaper. SMC has my seal of approval.

What if I told you that the SMC lipos and the "junk" lipos were all made in the same place?

So as an example the 4400mAh Factory Spec 60C Shorty Pack for $32.95 ?


Prices look awesome on the website.

There is that. I also haven't had good luck with my shorty SMC packs, they puff easier than the others I have used (while being handled and stored correctly). I have had good luck with SMC 4s packs, but with the Shorty packs, I have actually had best luck with Turnigy A-Spec shorty packs.

Here is my new carbon kickup chassis with an carbon upperplate.
Works really nice. Very easy to drive.
Not so stiff like the original setup.
Car weights 1489gr with minipins and shorty.
Did well in the last competition.

Does anyone have the part #'s or names of parts to convert the standard B5m tranny over to the 3 gear included in the Lite kit?

I've had that issues along with some other local guys with their race formula 4600 packs but the standard factory spec 4400 packs have been fine. They still have plenty of punch and run time for even the 4wd buggies and are only $35

I think the 4600 just have too much cell stuffed in to the standard case. While the do swell they aren't "puffed" and still work fine. At least in my case.

Even if using the same cells from the same factory, I know SMC hand selects, tests and matches the cells and use higher quality solder and all that good stuff. Also end up being cheaper due to local shipping and service is top notch.

You need the case, top shaft, motor plate, and gear cover. If you're on a budget, you can countersink your current motor plate on the other side.
