Building on what you're saying, a higher C rating doesn't even mean you'll have little or no fall off of performance - that's more a function of the capacity of the pack rather than the C rating.

If there is anyone out there who still doubts that there is a battery pack that has excellent performance; who still wonders if there is really such a thing as a 40C lipo; who still questions TP's ability to deliver, tonight is your answer.

I had the chance today to run the pack and all I can say is WOW!
I had to gear up for this battery. I was running a 4.7 FDR with my NOVAK 10.5
I had to go to a 5.1 FDR. This sh*t was on crack!!!

BTW I did run an SMC 5000 28C which was good but the TP was even better !!!

That would be very nice! I also agree on 10AWG wire, or 5.5mm or larger bullet connectors (I personally like the 6.5mm Castle Creations bullet connectors).

Best regards,

Thunder power , Any word on the 8000 mah 22c 2s packs? If they fit in the E Revo battery trays I know more then a few people who would love to use them lol. As of now none of the big lipo names makes a good 8000 2s pack. I know you have one but its only 10 c I believe. The E Revo takes two side by side but there in enclosed compartments. I know a 15c 8000 will fit but there from a so so company.
