Default ace pow / gens ace lipo testing, on road.

I will be trying out the Gens Ace 5000 30C lipo in my trf415msxx soon with a Redline 13.5 motor.

Has anyone else had any experiences of this lipo and if so, how did everything go for you?

My initial impression is that the case is well made and looks good.

Mine came supplied with corally tube connectors and a balance charge plug adaptor with corally male plugs into a deans T plug, but there is the choice of that or just a deans T plug coming out of the hard pack casing.

Hi, I am involved in the testing of these lipo's, so it came from Acepow directly.

I am looking forward to getting this strapped into my car for some racing, just wanted to see how other peoples experiences were with these

20SMOKE- Yes, that's the lipo range

I have been Testing a 4000mah 25c lipo and its a good battery with a lot of punch for a 25c. I get a lot of wheelies with my Blitz from the power and the battery is so light compared to the 5000mah I run. Oh yeah they are Roar Legal batteries that they send out for testing, so no need for any worries.

Acepow has informed that they want to be a big player in the US lipo market.

I am selling their ROAR legal 7.4V 5000 40c packs @ www.teamkellner.com

Introductory price of $60 plus shipping while supplies last.

These are the best packs I have tried, especially at this price. Don't be fooled by BS C ratings, these are the real thing.

My battery arrived yesterday from Eric at Ace batterys and i have carged it and will give it the first test run in my T3 over the weekend

It looks really good in a carbon fibre colour hard case and it feels quite heave compared to some lipos i have used in the past which i find good for balance in the car

Further reports to come over the weekend including lap times compared to me other 5000 40c lipos


Again thanks to Eric for the chance to test your batterys

MY REPORT ON THE ACEPOW 5000Mah 40C

I tested the lipo today and i am REALLY REALLY impressed with the proformance of the battery

The top speed is about 5kph differance than my other 5000 40c lipos and the extra punch is amazing

With this battery i am over half a second quicker than with my batterys consistantly through the 7 minuite runs i was doing

I am doing the ETS series which now i am looking forward too due to the extra power i now have

again Thank you Eric ,

GUYS BUY THESE BATTERYS

A friend wanted to try it and he has a 5900Mah 50c LRP battery and mine was quicker !!!! by quarter second !!!
