Default 5500 Digital cells

I have seen these cells 5500 mAh NiMH CTA Digital Batterys. Can they be run with the current crop of electronics and motors? and what about the GTB Brushless spedo.

All for now

I am sure they would work for bashing but they wouldn't fit in any current car easily. They are "C" size not "Sub-C" which is what all r/c cars use.

The are also probably built for low amp draw consumer electronics so if you used them with our motors they would become damaged and fail pretty quickly.

ESC dont care what type of cell u use. IT only cares about the voltage. IT could care less if its 60mah or 10,000mah. As long as the voltage is 4.6-7.2volts or higher if your ESC will take it..

The only thing to consider is the longer u run an ESC and Motor the hotter they can get. So considering your running an extra 1300mah of power over what most of us are running keep tabs on your temp. But as Adrian points out they wont be legal for most club racing
