yes I have two 8000 that I have had for 6 months still in great shape. He gets his cells from the same place as Maxxamps. He just does not charge as much for them. He is making me some custom packs now.

I would check out the Orion lipos, they have a hard case and a great reliability record.

When you get 8kmah packs you don't need cells that are rated at 20c continuous discharge so you can get large capacity packs that work great for less money then packs like the orion. A 10c 8kmah pack can actually discharge more amps cont. then a 25c 3200mah pack. Not to mention when you drop them into a t-4 you really don't have to worry about them getting hit by something. The hard cased lipos are great for 4wd classes because the packs are normally mounted on the side of the car & exposed to cars slamming into their side at 30 mph. Packs like this should see a surge in popularity when the nitro r/c pro series come around since li/bl trucks & 1/10th nitros are running togather w/ 30 minute mains in an effort to rebuild 2wd truck.

Default True R/C Lipo

Hey bprc10T3,

I have a 2s (2 cell 7.4v) 4000 mah lipo pack from Truerc.com. It has been working perfectly for 3 months now without a problem! It's important to check out if it's 10c or 15c before purchasing. (ie. the first 7.4v 4000mah 2s is only 10c for $40 but for $50 you get 15c). It also doesn't hurt calling him to ask questions about size, fit, etc. I've also had perfect experience with my 3s lipo 4000 from Maxamps.com. Personally, I like the smaller capacity for racing because it's litterally half the weight of a 6 cell nimh.... but you can always go bigger for more run time.

Hope it was helpful

True-RC are great batteries and their prices and service are even better.
The cells do come from the same place as Maxamps.

My favorite pack is their 7.4v 6400 15c (96 amps cont/128 amps max). It is the same size and weight as a 6 cell nimh for only $80. When we put them back on the charger after a 6 min race (19t in a T4), there is still 70% remaining.

Try one, you'll like it.
Craig
