Been good feedback on them on RCM, might want to go over there and research a little. Look in the brushless forum and do a search on true rc.

I have a bunch of the True RC lipos.
specifically the 5000 hard case's and the 4000 15c 7.4v soft packs
I have had these for a few months now racing every weekend no problems
One of my friends used my 5000 20c hard case's in his jammin x1-cr novak brushless conversion worked great

I have used there 8000mah 15C packs, which i think are made up of the 4000mah cells. excellent packs. If I didn't sell my e-revo i would have kept them for sure as the guy who got them comment how much higher the voltage levels were than his enerlands.

I'm bashing with two used 8000's and one new 12000, all soft packs with no issues. I would have to say it's a good batt for the money.

What is the balance plug type on those? I am trying to figure out which Hyperion balancer tab I would need for them.

Cool thanks.. In one of the pictures it looked like a connector similar to MaxAmps.

Maxamps will put on other manufactures connectors for the balancing tap but I believe Hyperion is the default connector.
