Any battery from a reputable matcher that has high voltage numbers and low IR numbers. Batteries matched at a 30 amp discharge in the 1.180+.

Fusion packs are good.

If you're not too sure on your soldering skills, you can get them prebuilt.

Kinda....

If you want to be fast the you want the BEST packs you can get from any matcher you like. They all do something different so you can't compare numbers. The best packs any particular manufatcer has will be similar the the best others have.

I usually go for run time, as long as the voltage is over 1.165 I'm happy but run time is king. You really need to think about how the voltage slope works in discharge. A 1.185 average voltage cell sounds good but if they only have 390 seconds of run time, at 400 seconds the voltage is zero. If you have 435 seconds cells then at the end of the discharge (race) you will have better voltage as you will be further back on the discharge curve.

As a note on equalising - do it and take them down to 0.0v every time. You will get more run time by discharging to zero volts rather that 0.8v (24 seconds on averager according to a tests performed by Pro Trak). I'm not convinced of the effectiveness of dead shorting, there have been varying results, sometimes a reduction of run time.

Run run my old mod packs in stock and 19T. When the run times aren't good enough for Mod they are great for stock. After a few months of Mod runs the IR gets lower and the voltage gets higher.

I under stand about discharge curves and the theory that you still need runtime for stock to stay in the higher voltage portion of the curve but when I cycle a 350-360 sec pack at 30A it will hold 7v+ for 300 sec. 300sec of good voltage is all you need.

Hi Adrian,

Believe it or not we do have a few people at our club dumping in 12th stock. Personally I like to see the voltage at 5 minutes under a 30A discharge for judging a stock pack, that and runtime works good for me but i always buy for run time. You know you can use run time packs for anything, but high voltage and only low runtime you can only really use for stock, they will not match uo in Mod.

I met you a few years back at Stockton or Ripon CA. If you could check out my website below I would be interested in your opinion. (CDAT website).

Thankyou.

Chris.
