the Weight #'s/shipping brackets are Cool tho...being able to know How much weight before your in the next price bracket....Coooool...i wish more online places did that.

i get my stuff from HK NO later then 2 weeks AT MOST....normally it'll be 6-10days from when they ship.

And No taxes or duties....common...can you really complain.

Do you think it hurt to use a 5s in my starter box.....I plan on going brushless soon and when I do I would like to be able to use this battery in my car..I know a $s will work but 4s isn`t any fun in bl 8th after you`ve driven them on a 6s

Thanks

5s or higher will defiantly fry the motors and switch in the box. I dont think the 775's will blow right away but you will defiantly cut their life short. The weak spot in these boxes IMO is the switch that turns the motors over when you press down on the box. Its just a brass washer and two contacts supported by plastic. I dont think this type of connection can handle that kinda power.
