Default Need picture of RC10T4 lipo equipped, 6000mah and 8000mah

I need chassis pics of T4's equipped with 6000mah and 8000mah lipo packs from maxamps. Want to see how the fit is and how you did the battery tray.

Also, please post (assuming brushless setup) runtime yo uget from your pack setup.

Thanks!

Maxamps 8000. The run time is insane. I use a BL 6.5 and have plenty of juice left
over after 20 minute runs. It could probably do 30 - 45 minute enduro runs if geared appropriately.

Even though the 8000 weighs about the same as an IB3800 pack, it does
raise the trucks cg a little bit. Not a lot, but just enough to notice.

How is the CG with the 6000mah pack versus 8000mah?

Also, where are you guys having to add weight at? Heard from wookie he prefers to just change suspension settings.

Thanks for all the info.

Leodis, what kind of characteristics are you seeing exactly with the 8000mah pack?

most guys i know that are running lipo have manufactured weights that fit in the place of the foam spacers in the battle tray, helping to keep most of the handling characteristics the same.

There were some technical sections of the track that I had dialed until I threw
in the 8000 without making any suspension changes. It was more difficult to make
tight turns while off-power and my truck was spending enough extra time on its lid for me to notice.

Thanks for the info. Is this a similar issue being seen with the 6000mah packs?
