Talking Maxamps 6500s



6500 @ 30c!? that is just redamdiculous! Has anyone gotten their hands on these yet? I've read a couple other posts on maxamp cells and the accuracy of their c rating may be in question (jury was still out last i read). I wonder how these stack up and are they legal considering some tracks have started implementing a mah cap for some classes.

Since no one can validate C Ratings and a motors ability to actually use the extra "C" is not completely known the jury is out on every cell IMO.

It's not a big deal because it isn't ROAR legal.

It's 27mm tall...too tall for ROAR specs.

It is a big deal if I wanted to run it at a track that only allows ROAR legal LiPos.

Then use it as your practice pack and quit whining.

I'd love to run this pack, but it won't fit in my RDX. their 6000mah pack just barely fits.

C ratings are not a mystery. "C" means capacity. The "C" ratings on the battery in the maximum continuous discharge rate of a pack.

the only ROAR legal pack maxamps has is the 4200ss 35c. maxamps batteries are good. i have 3 4 cell 4700 nimh packs and lipo.never had any problems.they have long run times and alot of punch.
