Hi there guys,
So I was having a bit of a discussion with a few of my fellow racers and it all revolved around battery performance according to mA.
Knowing a bit about electronics I have the following opinion:
If you have a RC car that has a certain power requirement, call it x watts. If I have a battery say a 2400mA battery and the battery charged is rated at 7.2V unmatched cells. Then if I have a 3000mA battery that is also exactly rated at 7.2V, there will be no performance difference due to the current pull being the same. My understanding is that having that extra 600mA will only allow the battery to last longer than the 2400mA before it loses all power and needs to be recharged.
I understand that voltage is exponential when being discharged but is not enough to be effected in a 5 min race. If mA was so important then my understanding is that a GP4300 would be prefered over a IB4200, but that is NOT the case.
My main arguement is that our local rules allow only 2400mA batteries to be run and that allowing any range of unmatched batteries will make races very unfair. Which I completly disagree with but am open minded enough to hear the pros of RCtech prove me wrong and allow for me to get a better understanding if I have missed the boat.
Apologies about the newbie question and all info will be great!
