Default MMM 6s Lipo low volt cut-off options?

Sorry I don't have time to dig for the answer.

According to the instruction manual the cut-off is good for 2, 3, and 4s. Is this true? If so what do I need to buy for a cut-off on the 6s packs?

Thank you.

On the castle link you can set for 6s I believe.

This is true. There is a cutoff for 18V (6S) on the MMM castle link software. Or you can set it to any voltage you want.

you will probably want to do 3.2V per cell, so, at 6S, go with 19.2V . The MMM uses a soft cutoff from what I am hearing from other people who have tested for it.

Sweet, I will bring the laptop home and set it for 19.2 w/ the castle link.

Could you explain "soft cutoff"

Thank you for your time.

no problem.

My understanding (again, based on what others experienced and posted) was that the car doesn't come to a dead stop when it hits cutoff. It short of lets you coast a bit for a VERY short time, sort of like when your nimhs about to dump on ya. At that moment, you should STOP driving the car, especially if you have it at the 3.0V default cutoff.

If you do nurse the car around a bit, go with a slightly higher cutoff than 3.2V per cell.

Yes, when the car hits cut-off it will go into a "limp mode" letting you still finish out a lap or get you back to you.
