Imo the Zeal isn't all its cracked up to be. I prefer velcro with Loose zip ties to prevent it from taking a ride in a hard crash.

Yea thanks for the info. I try to give my LHS some business since I race on their track. I didn't realize they would be back ordered so long. My patience is starting to run out.

Never run the cheap bullets that come with Lipo's (AKA the Birdcage looking one) I ran them over the summer cause I didn't know any better and everything ran alot hotter and not as well prolly to arching like someone said. I just switched to the Castle Bullet connectors for the Motor's I take the male end and use them in my Lipo's. They have alot more contact area and things have cooled down and run alot better.

I'm jealous. I've been backordered since 12/28 on those. I have 3 of the 5600's and I make due.

In a high powered setup they will literally melt the corner of the pack from arcing
I had the lose connection on one of the protek ones that Tekin recommended I buy from amainhobbies. It melted the corner of my pack. I put a hex wrench in it, pushed it out and was able to continue using the pack later after re-solding the connection (it melted the pack and unsoldered the wire). So who knows.

4in sensor wire is perfect, looks tight in the pics, but it has enough slack.

There is other lipo that you can find with 6500. Fantom or Revtech.

That looks way to tight for my likes.. chassis flex could pull that out.. if you say there is enough slack.. so be it.. but i wouldnt run that..

i have prolly the dumbest, question of the day.. i been racing a long time.. and the electric thing is soo much better than before..

my question is this..

What is the deal with C rating.. everyone here is wanting higher C rating batteries.. to be honest.. i tried some high C rated packs.. and really didnt see a huge difference.. i run some 30-40 packs.. and tried a 90C, tried 60C.. just wasnt that impressed honestly..

i can see the difference for maybe stock or 17.5, but for these SC trucks or 1/8 ebuggies, with pro4 motors, high KV motors.. does it really make that big of a difference?

Flame away!!!

6.6 lipos just delivered to my door along with the fan I ordered. I will defiantly need to mark the positive with a red paint pen so I don't hook them up backwards in a rush at the track. They are marked but not with color just the + sign. A mark with a red paint pen will do the trick for me. The fan is huge!!

Ran it like that for 6 races, zero problems. Its zip tied to the brace for support. I have very little chassis flex with the rc8 chassis brace and BCE chassis so that is not an issue.

There doesn't seem to be a standard for measureing "C rating". Nothing but hype tell there's some kind of standard behind it. I general go off runtime needed and temp of battery, I'm not a good enought driver to notice much of a diff from there.
