Default High Capacity NIMH C and D cells- 4500 maH, 9000 maH

Hello,

What do you all think about making a 6 or 7 cell battery pack out of these batteries?

Well, If i were u, I would definatly not get them. They maybe good in other things, but not be as good in R/C. U might want to stick with some good r/c batteries lik Team Orions or Fukuyama's.

I would take the 29 bucks and spend on a decent pack unless you are just looking for run time for a back yard basher.. sorry just my honest opinion

woohoo they say they can drain as high as 16amps

They could run my mini z


kidding aside. you might try these IF they would fit in your chassis AND you are only interested in running around the yard. If your racing anything but a rtr weak motor, stick with the sub c's made for rc

I might be wrong but those c-sized batteries are not the same dimensions as a sub-c battery which is the size of all the batteries that are used in r/c cars. Doesn't mean you cannot make them work.

The biggest reason they wouldn't work has already been mentioned. They only can have up to 16A draw on them Any stock motor is going to draw at least 20-25. Ecpecially full throttle from a stand still. You'll fry them and possibly damage other devices in the car.

they wouldnt fit in your car. and you would be going v.e.r.y slow, for a long time. lol, they last ages but they suck ass for speed and because of the high ampage required they'd probably overhead and die.
