Default Best 4s Lipo to use with Momba Monster

I am new to 8th scale oval racing, and have converted a losi 8 2.0 buggy over to a losi l8ight model with a mamba monster and 22ookv motor. I am trying to find the best battery, with good consistant power...that will last, and at a good price..just wanting to hear what you guys run..thanks, Matt

I run hyperion 5000mah 4S 25C. Better get less lipos and good ones.

I also have 4000mah 40C flightmax and they do their job too. In general, I would run 4S lipos between 120 and 160 A peak.

I'll second that, I've been running those hyperion g3 5000mAH lipo's for a year now. They are by far the best I've ever owned, and I've tried quite a few over the last say almost two years of 1/8 buggy racing.

+ 1 for the Hyperion G3. Awesome batteries. You can charge them at up to 5C, so you don't need to buy as many. They are lighter than all of my other packs of the same capacity, and they really punch out more power than other LiPos with higher C ratings.

the 45c nano-tech 5000mah pack would be a good one too. i just got mine on the mail and gave it a quick test run today at storage voltage and there is a noticeable difference from a 40c pack i tried before. this new pack has SICK punch. i will get a few more cycles on it next week. i think this pack can only get better from this point. it stayed at ambient temp the whole 8 or so minutes i ran it.

I just want to bump this to see which good quality lipo would be best in my new RC8Be buggy build with the 2200kV V3 ESC combo. I was thinking about the 4s and not the 6s to save some weight. The Thunder Power was suggested but Tower doesn't carry it and I'd like to use my $60 off offer.

Is Reedy any good?

Will someone please suggest a good lipo for this combo? thanks

Default 4s packs for 2200kv

i use the high end packs..right now im using a fantom 5200 50c 4s and man let me tell ya its got the power!! if you have the cash i would invest in high quality over quanity..on lipos of any kind.. 50c is probably and overkill on a 2200 motor in 1/8 electric, but its fun to have all that power at your finger tips, i run 2200kv, 16t pinion on 40 spur in my hyper 9e and its plenty fast..

some of the other guys running the associated 8 e are using 3s 40c packs on 2200 motors no problems just less runtime..still faster that any 1/8 nitro buggy top end..


tower hobbies doesnt carry much on top end lipos, stormer hobbies and few others do, check them out.!!
turnigy,fantom,smc,thunder power,pro match,trinity, are just some of the racing lables..associated 4s is good to at least the ones i saw running them at the track..

ACE has tested very well against the high end competition. i have 3 5300 4s 30c in stock and ordering 4s 5000 40c shortly

I use an ACE 25c 2600 4s in my 1/8 buggy with awsome power and run time for the size of the battery.

Thanks for the suggestions modlosi, I've got a good bit invested in this buggy so far so I'm not going to count pennies on the battery pack either; I want a nice pack for this buggy. I'll check out stormer hobbies and see what they have, I may grab one of the fantom packs you have. thanks

EDIT:

I'm sure this is a typical newbie question, but when I see something like Fantom 4200mAh 40C 14.8v Lipo Battery Pack how do I know if this is considered to be a 4S or 6S or something else entirely?

Hey Mulli, I'm a newb myself, but with lipos each cell = 3.7v, therefore 3.7 x 4 = 14.8, hence it's referring to a 4s battery...

I think :P

Thats correct, companys always refer to lipo voltage based on the nominal voltage of 3.7v/cell. So it wil always be 2S - 7.4v, 3S - 11.1v, 4S - 14.8v etc.

You won't see any advertising based on fully charged voltage of 4.2/cell.


As far as the OPs ques - I'd pick from either of Thunderpower or Hyperion G3 lipos.

Thanks LightWire and Duster, this is good info. It's a bit confusing to a newbie but I'm enjoying the learning experience of it all. I appreciate your help.
