Default Yeah batts

There are at least 4 racers at our club using these batteries. All of them agree they are very, very good for the money. They (me included) are going to keep using them and not bother with dearer batteries. The only time we have had any issue with them was when I left one in a car plugged in and turned on for about a week. Its now dead.
No swelling, no fires just good service from them and they have been used for stock and mod in both onroad and offroad.

Haven't heard from (waytoofast) yet. We have always been known for our customer support, and always do our best to keep the racer on the track.

Just got mine recently.

Anyone here using this Yeah Racing 3200mah lipo with TrakPower V-Balancer?

Where can I get the compatible balancer plug? Now all I can do is look at it.

Check commonsense rc or maybe one of the hyperion balancer adaptors will work.

Good deal. Are the lipos partially charged when shipped or are they fully charged?

I use only the blue cable of the battery harness (the midle one)and i soldered on it a female 2mm banana plug so i can charge them like a Trakpower lipo.It's very easy.

They usually are set at half the MaH that the battery is rated for. So when you get it be sure to charge it.

i charge mine at 3.2. Can somebody run it on their high end charger or something like that to see what kind of C rating that spits out? That would be interesting. Would be cool to see it actually be higher than 20c.

Sure with quality packs. Orion suggests no less then 3amps and no more then 7amps. SMC has been performance testing and recomends high rates as high as 12 amps...

I use one pack charge and recharge at 8amps all night. No issues no extra heat.... You have to remember that once a pack hits 8.4v(80% charge) the amp rate drops till the pack is 100% charged/.. its no like it takes the hit of amps right to the 100% charge point.. there is no risk of overcharge
