I don't see any reason for this thread, since there already has
been two threads about installing lipo batterys in starterboxes.
Next time, try using the "Search" option before starting another
thread on a subject that has been discussed in depth before.

Seriously LiPo saves a lot of weight, and really is a lot faster to charge, there is zero reasons to use anything else over a LiPo pack, I tend to think those small Pb batteries 'feel' soft in torque, the LiPo gives grunt, which is possibly just the increased voltage, but it's all good.

Default Wholy Crap On a Cracker...

Ok Just I went to my local Hobby shop this morning and Got a second Turnigy 7.4v 5000mah Lipo exacty the same as my lipo I already had and installed them into my Losi Starter box and OMG the difference was amazing its gone from pretty good to just plain WILD heaps more torque and I'm betting alot longer between charges.

Thanks to everyone for your help and advice its much apreciated.


I cant wait to spend a full day at the track on the starter just to compare the life difference and I'll still carry my Reedy 3600 nimh's Charged for back up..

Mine is a 7A, Made in Japan Hitachi brand & the weight is at least 10X that of the LiPo
