I was wondering if anyone has tried one of their new 70c 2s lipo's, I'm sure there's lots of lipo's that are along the same lines.

I've always liked the look of the Protek lipo's, just wondering if there is any noticeable difference in punch compaired to other brands.


Does anyone use Novak's Silver Solder?

Thinking of picking some up to help with resistance as I get a little heat in my wire's, There deans wet noodle copper wire's.

Could I have a cold joint causing the heat or is that just copper being copper? (truck runs great rx8-pro 4_)

Protek is a great option for screws! They are super cheap! most are like $1.99 a bag of 10! I recently bought 20 bags for spares!

I got one of their 70C shorty packs and will give it a try soon! I expect it to be a great pack if it is anyything like the other protek packs I have purchased!

Wish mine looked that good! I need to shorten the wires on my Tenshock SC411, but I suck at soldering and didn't want to have to re-tin the wires even then I couldn't get the wires to go down into the RX8 posts...it's probably a cold solder mess lol

Do these still require the use of the plastic outer cover?

Does anyone have a decent starting point for shocks using stock pistons with the "new" springs?

I know what you mean about that wires down into the rx8 posts, What I did was tin the wires, then clamp them with some vice grips, and it just slides into place with ease.
