Default Making a pack...

I was thinking, if i were to take apart my stick pack and make it into a side by side pack, would there be any advantage? (its a corally 2000mah pack)

the main advantage is that it makes matching easier, and you can equalize your battery cells.

I had this done to my packs by a mate a few weeks ago, I got easily another 1/3rd the punch from the same packs and esc, not to mention more run time.

Plus they look a whole bunch better!

u also get better conductivity because u can use different bars to connect the batteries. like dean bars instead of the traditional spot weld (that limits current flowing between cells)

Better conductivity on the battery bars vs the ones used in a stick pack. which is only spot welded in 2 tiny places
