They look to be like a they're machined aluminum. Weight wouldn't be too high, but if they are weighted why would you want the weight up so high?

You have to bypass most chargers safety features to even charge at the wrong voltage at this point.... lipo's don't ever have issues charging if you charge at the correct voltage setting. Understand the battery = no issues. About the only other thing that could possibly go wrong is a short and you can do that in or out of the vehicle charging or not charging if you are careless.. don't be careless; give respect where it is due and you will NEVER have an issue

Hey guys. I'm just getting my Dex410 ready to hit the track for the first time. What would be a good size pinion to start with? Med size carpet track, 7.5 motor , and will be using the 87t spur.

My buggy batteries get a little warm after the race. So I let them cool, then charge them up. Only takes like 30 min to charge them.

Warm yes, Hot is not normal though. If yours are hot then there is an issue that should be addressed, or it will eventually address itself with bad results. I have rec'd a set of 2s packs via priority mail a while back. One with a 3.90 charge and one had 4.15 on it. I put a storage on both, and stored them. The mostly charged one puffed a few days later..The other worked fine for months..

Geez, sounds like you can use a better charger. Lol

My Reedy 5200 packs take just over 15 minutes to charge, but I have the Elan RX2 which is the best charger I've ever used.

I'm referring to the slipper and battery retaining pins. I figured removing the wires was a given. As for easier slipper pin removal, the easiest way is with your index finger as you pull down on it ever so slightly as you pull towards you. Then the battery pin and follow as I described. Practice it a few times and it'll become a breeze.

Damn you must charge them at a high amperage. I bet your packs dont last very long? I always charge my packs at 1c some even lower. I never have problems with my packs puffing and I have some that are over three years old.

Hard to say, maybe trying to balance..? Get the car to roll more.. or maybe it is what we think it is, and just a tower stiffener..lol

Depends on what type of 7.5t motor you have. With the Trackstar 7.5t I use 24t or 25t pinion on an outdoor track with 30m long straight
