The batteries are great You can definatly notice the punch in stock classes. And you will be able to gear down a few teath because these batteries will give you a touch more overall speed. In my testing anyway

The packs with deans and corally's are both flat on the bottom

If you like the Corally tube connectors, nexus racing has them at a very good price.

Just obtained a new 50c+ pack from SMC. Compared to my older SMC 50C+ pack, its 30grams lighter, has the sticker on the top and the "lid" is now clipped into place differently.
Lucky I weighed the pack before going through tech!

Cheers Ant 3, although i meant to ask for a comparison from an SMC 40C pack versus the new SMC 50C. Has anyone back to back track tested both in 13.5 / stock?

If Ant will lend me one of his 50c i can do it I have the 40c and these are awesome batteries as well. The new 50c do have the edge on the older packs but there is not much in it in 17.5. If you can notice that much of a difference you would want to have am awesome set up and clean lines otherwise that extra punch is going to do nothing for you.

The fit perfectly in my mates 416 It rests againt the servo mount and the other mount at the back im not good with Tamiya and the plugs go at the back with 1 on the inside of the topdeck. Hope you can understand that hehe

Default which batt

i haven't been around in awhile... please excuse if this has already been asked...

i race stock or super stock touring rubber. is it better to have a higher capacity batt with lower c-rating, or a lower capacity batt with higher c-rating??
for example, 6000mah 28c, or 5000mah 45/50c ??

which will give better performance for 5 or 6 min races?
