I have my Ofna GTP2e on the way and Im about to order a tekin RX8 1900kv combo. My question is what 4c lipo would you run and why? At HT Austin we run 5min quals and a 10min main.

I run MaxAmps but that's just me. They are very expensive and it's just a matter of preferance. I like their warranty, I like that they arrive ready to be used, just plug and play. You pick the connector and balance plug. Their warranty is the best in the market as far as I'm concern. You also get lifetime re-wraps.

Most of the guys that I run with use HobbyKing Lipos. They are pretty decent, very inexpensive but it takes a while sometimes to get them from Hong Kong to the States. The issue with the HobbyKing stuff is that it come with very thick wires and that can be a pain to solder at times also they don't offer a warranty.

Robert, over the weekend since we did not race, I cycled that 10000MAH MaxAmps battery 4 times discharging and charging at 1 amp. The last charge I was able to get a little over 12000MAH into it! I will test this coming weekend to see if I can get three 5 minute qualifiers and one 10 minute main without charging.

We race in Austin every Saturday. We have an open class right now where nitro and electric race together, but we will soon have enough to seperate the class.
