Default ProTek Batteries

I did a search, and nothing came up. So what do people think of Protek Lipo packs.

I am interested in getting a couple 5000mAh, with 35c. I just got into on-road racing, so a higher c rating will do me no good.

This is the pack i want, that do you guys think.

I have seen this same (or apparently same) pack with several different brand labels on it lately.

What? A higher C rating will benefit you more on on-road, than off-road.

No. I am going to suck so much, that the high speeds will do me no good.

Packs are legit. All the guys running them out here are happy with them. Not to mention that the owner is a cool guy that actually races with us.
