I know there's been one or two threads on this already, but I've searched for an answer to my question and couldn't find one.
One of the local tracks I run at doesn't have power, normally I take 4 packs, between 2 cars. One is boosted stock and the other a mini. In total, I only need to charge 4 packs at the track, 2 for the stock TC, which use about 2500mah per run, and 2 for the mini which uses about 1200mah per run. I know 12v batteries aren't going to be 100% efficient, but essentially I need about 7400mah to put into the packs so say 10000 (which is 10Ah?) should cover it right? This bit is just really a clarification.
The part I couldn't find an answer for is if I need to run tyre warmers, how much will they use? I know its impossible to say exactly, but a ballpark would do. I'm using the muchmore 3080 (the one that just has the knob). Also, at home, or at the other powered track, what would a tyre truer need? My converted PC power supply works great for my charger and warmers, but cuts out when I turn on the truer, so I've been using the car battery to do it. I also noticed when I cut tyres on better power supplies, its very easy to stop the wheel from spinning, that doesn't happen on the car battery.
So having said 10Ah for the battery packs, would another 6Ah be enough?
I was hoping to get away with something smaller, like a motorcycle battery or something. I know people usually recommend deep cycle marine batteries, but they are expensive and large.
Finally, I was wondering if my rc charger will be able to recharge the larger battery? I'm using a Thunder T6 Multi.
Thanks for any help I can get.
