Just out of curiosity, at what rate are you guys charging your packs and how long does it take to charge after a run.

I'm just wondering whether or not I need to purchase a second pack.

I was taking about 2200 mah out per run last night and took 40 mins to charge at 4 amps. You could do it on one pack but I like two so I can get a few quick runs in before the race to do some last min tuning.

I'm charging at 6.0 A and there's no heat or signs of problems. I'm also replacing around 2200 mah.

There's nothing official yet, but I have it from a good source that 730g is a good bet.

Hi Daanyy,

Any idea when the next batch of cells are likely to be made available.

Are we looking at days, weeks or months?

Hey, guys. I need a little help on getting the SMC 3.7v pack to work in my WGT car. I tried running without a rx pack and the servo would "lock" after about 2 minutes of run time. So, I tried a 2s lipo rx pack and the same thing would happen. Last night, I finally got a 6v regulator (Losi LOSB9608) for the lipo rx pack and the problem was worse. I tried leaving the GTB switch off and just using the switch on the regulator...didn't work. Then I tried both switches turned on and still no luck. I then threw some AA alkaline batteries together to make a 6v pack and it worked for one 5-minute heat then the locking feeling came back in the main......uuuugggghhhh (Charlie Brown style!!)!!! So, here I am pleading for assistance. Here is my set up:

Speed Merchant Speed Spec II
Novak GTB (tried it with switch off and switch on and had same results)
Airtronics FM micro receiver
700mah 2s lipo pack with Losi LOSB9608 regulator
Mulitplex Polo Digi 4 servo (baciscally a digital HS-85MG servo)

I'm going to swap out the servo to a larger servo with more torque. Anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks!!

Troy.
