And they also only recommend the 2c charge every other time. With reduced battery life.

I use the cellpro 10s charger/balancer. I haven't noticed any change in my batteries since I balance them every time I charge them. There probably is some damage but according to my internal resistance readings, the cells are still as good as before I was charging with 10 amps. Before I used to use the Orion advantage charger @ 4.9 amps with v-balancer (great charger as well) but I run A123 cells on my truggy now and I needed a charger that can handle a 10 amp charge. Since I only drive my cars once a week and each battery probably gets used twice a week I figure by the time they die from this 10 amp charge the next battery technology will be out. Either way, The small print on the trakpower battery says it can handle 10 amps so I figure I might as well take advantage of it.

I just got the Trakpower 5400 for mt T4. It's a 16c but I think for 2whl that will be more than enough punch. Any comments ?

This will be a perfect pack for mod, You will easly be able to run 2 heats on a charge. May suffer a little punch in stock but your driving will make up for it
