yeah i was considering a gens a while back till i read how i would be replacing them every year due to how quickly the cells die out. and that trinity looks extremely tempting, any idea on its weight and how long it will last? (i know it just came out) and i am really liking that eam battery, 70c sounds a bit crazy for our class but will work in my other projects. and is that 70c rating continuous rating or burst? honestly it sucks that venom cant keep their shit together because while 50% of people that buy their products have problems the other 50% never does and i have to say that i was skeptical about it after reading reviews but from start to finisht the batt held its punch and had an amazing run time, im not 100% but id have to say it was close to the 25+ min mark without showing signs of dying....

best USVTA lipo is the Reedy Wolfpack 5000 25C...imo...its been a great pack for almost a year...the IR are not as high as others, but it deleivers time and time again...and the price is great too

EAM is tops as well...only ran it a couple of times, but I know EA, and he puts out great products

i think i might go with the eam because for the price thats quite a battery and like i said i need something with a decent c rating for my other builds (although i dont need 70c) but it is nice to not have that limitation and i dont understand the price jump from $65 for the 5000mah to $104 for the 6500mah with the same c rating? still dont know if that c rating is for burst or continuous... im guessing continuous but id hate to be wrong. anybody have weight specs? also not to call eam out here or anything but how can he charge that low of a price when others like venom and reedy are charging almost double for the same thing with less quality?

I like my Trinity batttery in the earlier picture! Have had no problems. Why worry about weight when the VTA has to weight 1550.

awesome, the only reason i am looking to shed weight is because im running a tc3 "tank" compared to the rich cheaters using carbon fiber chassis but if i had the money to atm im sure i would be too, imo old school bodies should be run with old school chassis

EA's batteries are great, I own 4 of the 70c 5000 packs. As far as price, he gets them factory direct. Big name companies have big overhead, it takes alot of money to sponsor races, racers, advertise, etc and that has to be made up with price increase on all products

Hi guy's I am planning to start running VTA at my local onroad track for the winter months, I am looking to run a TC6.1 with a 69 Camaro shell and I am wondering if there is a place to find different setups and tips on the best way to setup a VTA ride?

Thanks guy's

Sean

Thank you thats great to know. I was just thinking with the different widths front and rear and being an HPI tire I have no clue as to what to expect traction wise.
