3. Apogee 4956 lipo pack $140
Feed back on these would be great....like how long do they actually last(racing time for stock motor or mod or brushless) How long to charge them, How much capacity is actually used during racing and how long to recharge?
I can probably afford one pack only, so I just want to reuse it for 2 quals and a main.
Sorry I missed the second part of your post. The runtime for stock is about 18 to 24 mins. depending on the conditions and driving style, Mod Brushless about the same. Just be careful not to run them down to low. The beauty of these packs is that you never need to discharge , so after your run, let them cool down a bit and then top off. You should have plenty of time between heats to do this. Good Luck.
