2 cells is the only restriction
Consider how thick the wire is on the 5000 mAh batteries, I'd be afraid how thick of a wire they would use on a 8000 or 10000 mAh battery.

Thanks Pal !
Your shock cap went out at lunch, I expedited it in case you are racing this weekend (should be there before the weekend). Gotta keep the Losi's up and running!

You can simply strap two 4 or 5000's together and hook up in parallel to get the runtime you desire.

I'm on a "My name is Earl' kick.

This has been one of the best threads on RCTech, everyone has been very helpful, flaming has been limited to the weekend warriors. That makes me want to help peeps who are in a parts bind.

Im not even talking about the crazy 400+oz servos that are available out there.

Bottom line is the BEC in the MMP is inadequate for anything more than a basic servo. As soon as you get into digital servos with 200+oz of torque and way more static holding power than the analog servos you can expect to start needing to add things to the system to make it all work.

If you stick with analog servos or a more basic digital servo with less torque you probably wont have a problem.
I know it's an analog servo, that was the point. I saw the problems people were having and I decided to run that servo and simply avoid the problem. That servo by the way is more than adequate for the job. It did the steering chores on my 1/8 scale nitro buggy for a few years before getting 4x4 sct duty last year and this. It's strong, fast, centers well and is dead reliable.

I'll take an Elite motor mount and that prototype C/F chassis you showed off a while ago .

I have done the same thing with Hyper 10SC parts with a couple members here , all I ask is they pay postage ....

Have any used SCTE wheels or tires you wanna get rid of Salad? Discounted Bodies? If not no worries thought I'd see if you had stuff collecting dust. Just bought the last pair of beams at the LHS. So I have a pair of Newish Calibers, and 2 new pink beams anyone have an idea if I should run the beams on the front or rear?
