If these batteries are good enough for him I can't argue. He said not to waste my money and put it somewhere else so I'll listen. Plus its a motor not an engine. Oh to add to this I have 2 SMC C-MAX 5200maH batteries that have puffed up with only balance charging 300 bucks down the drain.
Yeah my apologies I did type engine and not motor.. sorry.
Hey look nothing will beat a great setup I hear ya. And a great setup and a great driver will beat power anyday. But then you need some power to keep it all going.
Its the package all wrapped together that makes the laptimes.
Dont think for one minute I was putting him down or you down or the cheap batteries either... Just with my experiences I have had was all I was quoting on.
I put all my electrics in a dirty old tt01 with plastic non oil filled shocks and no ball bearings or anything and I am flogging most and lapping cars 5 times in a 6 minute heat here and they are all running $500 chassis's. So go figure. Its a matter of combonations not just one thing. We could go on for ever but the bottom line is everything has got to be right for your setup and what works for you will most certainly not work for someone else.
Take gear ratio's for instance, I proved it to ppl on monday night just gone that it is driving style that it will come down to if one person can keep the temps down compared to someone else driving the same track layout.
Just goes to show there is more than one thing.
So apologies again if I stepped on anyones toes.
