I use the Orion 90c Lipos

I have moved from SMC 60c, IP 60c to now the Orions and i notice the power , i charge at 20a and have loads more punch and top speed with these , i tested and am quicker with the Orion ,

We run 0 timing and every one runs the same motor/speedo combo and a fixed gearing of 4.0 so it is up to batterys

Thumbs down

At 40c or more, the battery difference will not make you any better ! What counts is your driving ! Ask the National Champion Paul Lemieux running thunderpower 65c packs ! Thunderpower is the only way to go , no matter what C rating other manufacturers are claiming !!!!! 9000000C orion packs on the way right ....

It's an outdoor tarmac track. I'm going to be doing some testing before the STCC meeting there in September. The club website showing the track location is;

http://www.colchestermodelcarclub.com/location.html

If you fancy coming down I can sort you out with some tyres to run (I've got a good few used sets you can borrow for the day) and you can try out the 50C and 60C SMC packs.

Offer is open to anyone who wants to try the cells out, come and find me and I'll sort you out with a pack to try.

The official disti is West London Models but they are useless.

I've PM'd you with where I got mine.

I've got 40C 5000, 50C 5000 and 65C 5300's, all Thunder Power.
I've been keeping up with the fast guys at West London even with my 2 year old 40C packs.
I won't use anyone else.

I'll also be at Colchester for the STCC, and if anyone's interested I have two 40C packs with some case damage (the only reason I bought new ones) you can try, or buy for 50 the pair.

Imagine if everyone of the 150 racers showing up to race charged their packs at 20A each !!! The transformers would blowup for sure !!! Why stop at 20A anyways ? Why not a 50A or 90A charge ???? Some racers really know how to complicate everything !!! Maybe Roar should invest in a Rc Field Psychiatrist with tight dress and big boobs.....
