I don't think anyone will buy a $200 2 cell lipo battery.

if the discharge rate on this packs is what really is then we can run 1/8th car with 2 cells. But I think $200 IS STILL PRETTY PRICEY.

The best batteries are a matter of opinion. I win a lot of races using epic packs over thunder powers

How can SMC reliably have a 50C pack when top quality brands such at Polyquest / Enerland are still at 30C. Plus just a read through the SMC forums shows a higher amount of puffing packs than I'd like to see.

Too good to be true?
