Diggity is making Trays for the Yokomo BX now. These will probably fit in the BX Worlds car. Not so sure about the standard BX.

Can you elaborate on that a little bit? The track I will be racing at is quite large so perhaps I should more strongly consider a higher C rating for my next battery. I'm using 17/84 gearing right now with a 13t brushed motor and I can't clear some of the jumps. With my gearing it accelerates very quickly but the top end isn't there. I think I might bump up to a 19t or so pinion gear to see how that works. The straights are so big 1/8 scale nitro buggies probably have plenty of time to get up to speed. It's a great 1/8 scale track, bigger than the others I've raced at.

Basically, Lipo batteries with higher C ratings can handle full throttle loads better than those with lower C Ratings. On a larger track, you normally spend more time at Wide Open Throttle than compared to a smaller track.

For instance, the two tracks that I normally race at are 100x70 and 200x100. Both tracks have straightaways the full length of the longest leg, and the larger track normally has a banked turn that you can burn through without lifting when it's not blown out. At my smaller track, I am lucky if I get my gear is above 120 degrees. At the large track I routinely get into the 150-160 degree range.

Thus having a larger C rating helps the cells hold up better. Other issues, such as wheel spin (excessive RPMs) for loose tracks, and blue grooved clay (Higher tension = more amp drain) tracks also change these variables, as both increase the load on your motor in different ways.

Hope this helps.

I've got a B44. Right now using a 13 turn brushed motor, hoping to switch to a mamba max + 6900 sometime soon though. Perhaps my current setup doesn't require more than 15C out of my current battery, but when I switch to the mamba it might be a more noticeable difference between a 15c and a 25c battery? I don't know. My current battery is a 5500mah maxamps.

Well the 4600 probably makes more torque than the 6900. I'm hoping wheelies won't be an issue with the proper gearing and the 6900. This is a big 1/8 scale track, big jumps and long straights. I'll need the top end...and if that's the case I may want the SMC or at least a Trak Power battery instead of my current Maxamps.

Can anyone who's seen or used these tell me if they have built in bullet connectors (ala trakpower) or are the wires hardwired in there?

I am curious, are these differenct cells that what Danny was testing as he originally stated they would be 22C and now they are 25C. Do they come with the 10 Gauge wire still?

If 4wd was a class I would sure like to give the packs a try. Maybe TC chassis?

As for cost, depends on what you feel you need and what you get out of the C rating. There is no industry standard it appears for C rating, some rate the packs as they come from the factory, some real rate the packs based on tests they do which usually show the packs as being less "Real C" rating than the factory rating, but in the end, the main thing that matters is whatever is chosen, the packs can handle the rating they are SOLD to be.
