I have used all four of the above plus smc. I would pick all four of them over the smc. They come with better cases and did not have swell issues.

lol, I have some proteks that are 9 months pregnant after a few runs in 17.5 lol. Orions seem to hold up well. almost every revtech I see is puffed. anyway, I like the IP lipos from Promatch. The most powerful packs I have run in 17.5. And they have the best numbers on a cycle with my icharger 4010

Wildcat, I raced down at W3 about a month ago with my RM and since than I purchased a MM. I'm loving the MM and so much I bought the conversion kit. Do you know what (MM/RM) most are running in 17.5? With the coming of the indoor SRS and W3, I think I'll never need RM. I'm from UT and both tracks are considered high to med high traction.

If you are having that many issues with batteries it is likely a user issue not a battery issue. All of the batteries I listed I have used with no issue, not stuff I "see".

You must have great traction.

Been running my rear chassis camber stud in the outer position.
Car will roll a little less in the apex.

post your setup and track conditions. We can all sit here and bounce ideas at you and some might stick, some might not. It all depends on your conditions and we can give you better advice knowing this.

Has anyone else raced the rear motor in 17.5, bought a mid, and not liked it in 17.5 as much? I have only 2 races on my mid motor so far and love the way it drives, it is just slow and less punchy. I am more familiar with the rear motor as I have way more races on it, and I am not giving up on the mid yet but part of me just wants to run mod with the mid, rear in 17.5

I have the proteks. The trinity packs were a guy a pit with. And not every protek puffed, lol. I have a 2+ year old Amain ECO pack that is flat as a board. Danny from Amain explained the issues as being case size. Some of these new packs like the 4800mah shorties, have a lot of battery in the case and any swelling at all will puff the case. On my lower mah packs like the 4000mah, I never saw any puffing. So either batteries have gotten worse or like Danny said, puffing is going to increase as we stuff more and more mah into the same sized cases. I have mainly seen the and experienced the issues with packs over 4200 mah. Also, I live in Az and raced outdoors. Some days its over 110 degrees out, with little to no shade.

I see many guys running linger links on both B5's. I have always ran the stand links and recently went to longer links and really liked it. I have also found that lowering the entire rear link makes the rear drive flatter.

The battery thing is so funny. Subjective isn't the right word but maybe random? I have 3 SMC 4600 shortys and those are notorious for puffing. None of mine have ever so much as even slightly puffed, even under extreme use.
