Yeah, I was more concerned of the Amperage.

WingWrecker's above advice about stick w/the 2.2A Lipo for the losi starter box motors.

Wondered how that'd apply to 750's mainly.

I think I got it... maybe.

I run ofna with 2 775 on gel cell. It will turn over any motor. Don't really need to go lipo IMO. Save you some money for other things.

Specs for 775:

I've been thinking of taking two 2s packs and wiring them in parallel.
Wiring two 2s packs in parallel will only double the mah capacity, leaving you with a higher mah 7.4v power source.

You'd want to wire two 2s packs in series to get the voltage that a starter box requires.

Most starter box's are already wired for a series connection to be used with 2 Nimh batts and would require no changes if using tamiya connectors. If switching to deans, just resolder one lead at a time, leaving the circuit as it was.

Awesome, thanks for that link az00lude.

And thanks for that correction WingWrecker.

Gotcha now.
