Both are brand new batteries, I have two 6600's and one 5300 and both 6600's act the same way....

Could be a bad batch. Hard to tell? Run the ones that feel good. Are you getting better runtime out of the 6600's?

I am still about 95% sure I am going to Reedy. Still working out some details on watching kids. Lets put it this way I already glued up tires for that race!

My SCTE is down for an overhaul and installation of the MIP proformance package. So I've been running ebuggy lately. This weekend's going to be my maiden voyage on my TLR 22sct. I've been running my RCRD 22sct conversion since it came out about 4 months ago, but now it's time to run the real thing!
Ya ,I think running or racing twice a week for 2.5+- yrs is starting to pay off. And just so much time now with this truck it just gets easier and easier for sure.Really getting in line with the tuning of the truck(yes this means sleeping with it )lately just makes a huge difference!I really like IERC,the track Is fun!I def had some uber fast company!!!Wait for it to cool off before coming out for sure 101-104 skip it!! LOL!Redlands seemed way to small for 4x4 sct I was 1/2 throttle all the way round But a/c and really good clay!!.And about that MIP.I have seen a local driver that went from decent or ok, to Very Good , by going to that set up(MIp)!!In other words an average Joe and it helped him alot!!Me ,Not gonna switch any thing for now She Hooks and Books!!Cheers!!!
P.S. Let Me know if yer gonna get rid of the BCE Chassis I want it!And oh Ya Good luck with the 22 sct!

6600's are in the 300 range, 5300's would be in the 270-280 range, No way are the 5300's 100g lighter.

must be tiny 2s...sorry...if you go compare a 3s-4s large capacity/c rating vs a lower one there is a larger difference in weight...but not so much with these nanotech 2s...only 30 grams or so

I agree, my xcelerion 6000 60c is crap.
Only charges to 5000, starts dumping less than half way through. Can't even clear the triples. My gens ace 50c will clear em till the pack is dead. It's older and only 31$
Always taken great care of my lipos too. No puffin tho.

Worst 90$ I ever spent in this hobby.
Ps. There's about 6 of em in the used case aty track too. All puffed.

No im not guessing, Packs Vary in weight. My pair of 6000's were 290g and 296g, 4 of the 6600's I ordered were all within 3g at 295-298g.

Since we're on the topic of batteries, do you guys think there's a big difference between the nanotechs and the nanotech a-specs? Right now, I'm using nanotech 2s 6000mah 65-130c batteries and they seem pretty good. I don't have anything to compare them to but I'm wondering if the a-specs are worth the extra $10.

Been running promatch for 3 yrs. Jeff treats his customers with respect, handles warranty work when needed and is in the usa. I tested for him as I live in his town.. I also tested nano's have a few 6600's and a few others.. for the dollar I would give him a try. . make sure your low voltage is set higher then 3.2 if you running a rx 8 you can custom set your voltage to save puffing. if you bash and spin your tires and haul a** your going to over heat and puff.. I know I did a test. in summer heat.. I puffed 5 different batteries and fried a new rx8 testing soldering.. man it hurts to be in front then not finish a 10 main when you stuff takes a dump hauling a**. i am no expert. just giving you some friendly advise. Have fun

Why doesn't Losi come out with a TLR kit of the scte? I'm in the market for a race "spec" 4wd short course. From what I've read you've gotta spent a pretty penny getting this truck up to par. New chassis, TLR upgrade kit.

I would assume something is in the works. I hope my patience will pay off...
