I searched the forum for a "battery bars" thread and the results sent me to a "Ofna 1/8th scale" thread. For some reason, the search box is not working. So, I have to ask this question again:
Why are battery bars plated? Is it to improve the conductivity or the strength of copper? Isn't copper the most conductive material? Why do manufacturers make silver, gold, platinum platted battery bars?
In other words, if I had a top of the line, racing battery pack (I do
), which battery bars should I use to assemble it? Does it actually make any difference resistance wise?
