OMG THAT TOOK ALONG TIME!
i just read through both threads tonight... 4 hrs later, im here!
anyways, it seems as if these packs are awesome in TC but what about anywhere else?
myself,ive got a AE TC3 (yes, its old) but its indestructable and when we make a track and race socially, im almost ALWAYS the last one standing... but with my ancient nimh, everyone has moved to lipos and i wanna show them up
also, im building an offroad conversion of a hyper 8.5 PRO. ive decided 4s will be enough for me, and getting any pack to fit is a minor issue...
the question im seeking is: what happens when i put 2 of the 5000mah packs in series, and only run 1 connection to the esc (mamba monster). if i set the lipo cutoff to 3.1v/cell, what would happen if 1 pack is weaker and dropped below this magic number, while the other cells are happily above the cutoff?
any questions? is it worth running 2 seperate cutoff units = more clutter and fiddling around... and how long will these packs last geting heavily used in my setup? (obviously harder than any racing tc setup (speed runs could have the same effect)
thanks, and i looked for an answer and can happily tell you that this has not been asked in this thread yet!
