I'm having a great day, after finding out that I need a new motor, my dad helped me put my stuff away and he put my batterys away. I keep my batteries in the top of my toolbox with strips of foam creating a compartment for each. The strip of foam that goes between the packs must have been moved over to the side a little bit so I guess he pushed it the rest of the way over and put the batteries right next to each other with the battery bars pressing against each other. He said it didnt spark or anything. When I got home I took the parts tray out of my toolbox and it felt really hot, the batterys are above it in the top section. The batteries are completely destroyed. Only 4 of the cells look like the might have survived. One looks like it might have exploded and acid, I guess, leaked out of it, a few others are leaking acid and all except the 4 that might be ok have severely blurred writing on the stickers, meaning that they were definitly over 200F. Some of the battery bars came unsoldered too. My toolbox is also melted a little but definitly still useable. So my only 2 3300s are ruined. I have to get some new ones and Im not sure what to get. I'm not looking to buy orion or SMC batteries because I dont need the best and I'm not running stock anyway so I dont think voltage is that important. Im pretty set on promatch because they have the best prices and they seem to have the best reputation of the online places. I can get 2 Packs of 1.165-1.169 AV Voltage Cells for $85 or I can get 1.170-1.174 AV Voltage 390-400 Runtime packs for $50 each. Should I go for more voltage or runtime? I think Ill probably end up getting a mod motor because that's what everyone else is running so I'd probably be better off going for the packs with better runtime?
I'm probably going to get 3 packs so I could also get 2 of the lower voltage packs and one of the higher voltage packs.

stick with a stock or a 19 turn u probally arent at the level to handle at mod yet
get your car around the track without crashing and try to keep a consistant line. and get the orion 3300 at 110 its like a few dollars more then those promatch. buy stuff from the shop instead of those online stores. 110 usually has really good prices for most of there stuff. and buy the gm battery box. it holds 8 packs and itll help your battery's from shortin

mstng87gt 06-26-2004 09:01 PM

first off who are you max to say what he has to run lol and he is running a 19t.

secondly i have to agree with max about the orion batts they pack some punch and with the 19t yes voltage still helps and i noticed that the orions keep it through out the entire pack unlike promatch where you have it for about 1/4 -1/2 way. i would also recommend smc they seem to have really good cells.

and your wrong about the price max.

craziracer 06-26-2004 09:11 PM

i am MAX to tell him what to run:sweat: i am not wrong about the price the orion packs are 89.99 or something like that
i know that gay 19 turn sucks but your gonna be even slower with a mod
