Blinky is the class that roar, efra, ifmar, etc. created for the speed controls that cant keep up in boosted its just the spec class run at many tracks around the world now, very popular, it was created to make racing more competitive, but in my area, it never changed anything except now you need a new motor and battery every month to get fast and have any hope of staying fast.

On topic- I run SpeedZone USA lipo packs, the newest pack is the 6300MaH 65c pack, still waiting on my new one, but so far it has been the best lipo pack i have ever ran, being a team driver has nothing to do with that opinion to be honest. Consider them, you wont regret it. www.speedzoneusa.com

Depends the higher c rating is nice, but then it will lower run time.

Thats in-correct.


Run time is only effected by the consumption rate, and the capacity of the battery. The C rating of the cell has nothing to do with run time.

around 260 grams, not sure what other packs weight, but my car (Top Photon) with HobbyWing speedo, futaba faast receiver, savox- 1251mg servo and reVtech 17.5 with 10grams on the battery side for balance is only 15 grams over weight.

+1 for SpeedZone. Very well priced, and I've been receiving better numbers lately than Thunder Power packs, and even SMC. And there punchy, check em out.

RevTech packs were the pack of choice at IIC this year. I've been very happy with the performance. As for weight, 144g for the 1s 65 5600 packs.
