Questions?? Can I use lipo Thunder power 6s 25c 5000mah with cc mmm v3 2200 kv?

Can I use lipo Thunder power 6s 25c 5000mah with cc mmm v3 2200 kv?

I have a question with manual from CC That said
[ We suggest that u never run the system at mor than 80 %
of the max continuous ]
exe
5000 mah pack = 5ah
5 x 20c = 100 amps
100 x 80% = 80 amps max continuous

For my 6s 25c 5000mah

5000 = 5ah
5x25 = 125 amps
125x 80% = 100 amps max continuous

Is it ok with cc mmm v3 2200 kv because it 100 amps?

Most guys running 6S are recommending something like a 1300kv motor. If you are just doing speed runs that might be a fun setup as long as you monitor the batt temp, but for continous running you will want a lower KV motor or a 4S batt. What vehicle and what type of driving will you be doing?

Castle recommends a 4S pack with the 2200kv motor, it's considered the sweet spot for that motor.

A 6s 5000 mAh pack must be a real BRICK too If you intend to do any manuevering, it won't be pretty!

To answer your question however, you CAN run that battery, it's just not really optimal unless you're straight line running.

Why they said 2200kv can run with 6s lipo?

Cause it can, so can the 2650kv... it wont be pretty, but it can. The higher the cells, the lower the KV you want to go.

The size of a 6S 5000 lipo is going to be large, heavy and not efficient at all for any buggy/truggy/truck

I would not get it because it will be way heavy & your car will not handle well. Even the 5S 5000mAh pack I have is too heavy for my RCPD RC8. It handles much better with a 5S 3800mAh pack.

It will work. I know a guy running the Losi conversion buggy with 6S & the 2200kv but it's way more power than you can control without taking most of the power out using the ESC & radio adjustments.
