"low price" $145 yikes! They better be good for that price. Sounds like they are worth it from what you said.

Run the best batteries you can buy, that's what I say.
Yeah I run the same lipo's but the Fantom version, which is the same line. They share a product line. Right now I'm using the Fantom KillerVolts 100c shorty. Its the same as the Trinity RevTech 100c DoubleDuce. Its case is very nice. The +/- are large and labled well, the punch is incredible. But something important to know is this. They are 100c continious, and also 100c burst. If you are running mod buggy or mod sc, they can be a handful coming out of corners. You have to dial a lot of punch out. This is why you see a lot of pro driver setups for mod running 20c wolfpacks. Smoother bottom end.

Or you could just run a high c pack and dial the throttle down with the transmitter. Never heard of a pro running a pack that is on the edge of discharging to fast and catching fire.

I race weekly with Kinwald and Maifield, and lots of other Nats A-mainers so I asked the reason why a lot of the Maifield Cavalieri setups show them using low C rated packs and they said it helps smooth out the punchiness on mod motors. Not trying to argue, I was just posting my thoughts on a specific lipo that was being discussed. They will work great in the SCTE.

They do that for two reasons actually 1 to smooth out the punch as already mentioned and because the packs are light. The pack will not discharge to fast in a 2wd buggy or ST now in a heavier 4wd sct that's a different story

I apologize if this has been asked, but I am not finding an answer through search. Has anyone had to use an external BEC with the Tekin RX8, Pro4 4600 with a Savox Servo. Currently I run a S6040 with an SR 300 RX but I have to run a BEC. I also just picked up a DSM2 RX hoping this could help.

I didnt need a bec just used glitch busters but also switched to dsm2 and the problem disappeared. Sr 300 are pretty iffy! I now use a jr 9100 t servo and ditched my savox servo's

Anyone have an upgraded chassis for sale? I'd like a KH chassis but no one has them in stock Also looking for a TLR tuning kit. I would go with the deal from Nitro House for the Bump chassis and TLR tuning kit but they are on backorder too I'm hoping maybe someone upgraded to the MIP kit and is selling all of their previous upgrades haha

Heatsink that works well for me. The Castle motor fan is crap (IMO) and a fan on a metal heat sink is not needed. Again, my opinion.

The IP 6800 mah 70c packs from Promatch have a good reputation. Paying $160 for two packs is a lot easier on my wallet than one $145 pack. Never been a huge Trinity fan either.

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ck-74V-6900mAh

In 4wd SC and 1/8th scale I always run a Castle BEC. Eliminates potential issues and also allows you to send higher volts to the steering servo than the 5.75v - 6v that the built in BEC will feed the servo.
