Default SMC or Team Orion

Hello,
I want to acquire a couple of batteries lipo, and not on which to decide if for the team orion or for the new SMC of 5600.
If there is another option it wanted to know it.
P.d: I search lipos powerful because it is for stock.

Between the two, I would choose Orion a million times over. I wouldn't even give SMC a thought.

But in the end, I agree with the post above. I don't own any of those batteries, because I only use ThunderPower.

i would get team orion. They give out much more honest number than SMC.

I just got couple packs from rc-toro. They have it on sale.

The thunder powers are ROAR approved... which usually makes em legal for anything, but be sure a CHECK your rules. Everyone who has run Thunderpowers against anything else will tell you how much better they are. Their current top pack is the 5200 50C. Best thing is these will be AWESOME for 12months minimum, far longer than anything else.

Anything over 5000mAh will give you all the power you need to race.. After that the quality is far more important. What you really need to find out is what is the Nosram pack based on and how good is that pack? Most batteries are sold under multiple names but there is always the real pack. At the moment you can buy IP's under more than 5 different labels... bad news if you don't know what they are.
