I'm just a little curious, what's with the voltage spike after 2 minutes?

That's right where the GFX takes the reading for IR. At 120 seconds into the discharge.

Exactly!

The Type-R has been running the SMC5000 28C pack for a while with very little work.

Questions?? C Rating re-visited..

I understand the 2C rating..

What exactly is the 23C Discharge rating?? And how can the end-user (customer) verify this claim??

But imagine the extra power of a 6000mah Lipo 25C. A 2S1P 6000mah 25C Lipo within a couple yrs? Who knows...but right now the 5000mah packs are awesome and we'll have no pblms making time with mod for many yrs to come.

A pack of that size should be in 24.5-25mm high range.

Currently only the TC5, and MI3 are able to fit up to 25mm packs, cause they actually planned for it.

The pblm is the car manufacturers who have not caught on to the Lipo tech yet, but have begun and soon their new 2009 version will feature better lipo fitment.

I don't think ROAR has a capacity limit they just have a size limit. Our 28C 5000 is pretty close to the maximum limit so I doubt that a 6000 can fit in the size limit.

C rate is the maximum amp load that you can put on a Lipo. So if a 5000 pack has a 10C rating it means that it can handle 50 amps continous and it should remain at 90% of it's rated capacity. 20C would be 100 amps and 30C 150 amps.

It's very hard for the consumer to test this as the equipment to test such high amp loads is very expensive as it needs to be able to dissipate allot of power.

It means that you can safely charge the pack at 2C or 6.8 amps without causing damage to the cells, however there may be a shorter lifespan of the cells when the packs is constantly charged at 2C.

Already ROAR approved! Rarely needs balancing, if ever, and real specs for the performance.

We are working on some larger versions as well. This is a nice price point for most and plenty for 2 of 3 classes since they are 13.5 and 17.5 motors. Larger capacities and discharge rates are nice but there is a direct relationship with cost as well. For most of us that extra V does not mean as much as staying on the wheels.

The Power cells also fit very nicely in almost all cars since they are only 23mm plus the bumps for chassis slots. They are also less than the 47mm max width and have top mounted wires for good fit in offroad trays. The case material and rugged design should provide for many good runs.
