Default What battery should i use?

Okay so i have just bought the following items

1. FlySky FS-GT3B Digital 79P-GT3B-CarRadio-LCD

2. HobbyWing EZRUN Brushless 07E-EZRUN-Combo
System Combo B1 w/ 35A ESC and [email protected] 3650M Brushless Motor 1/10 on-road racing

and i am wondering what battery i should use to the the maximum performance out of it, i know its a slower motor and ecs, but this is for my brother to practice later on i will buy a stronger motor for the ecs.

thanks and if you have any idea let me know.


link to the motor and ECS combo :http://www.hobbypartz.com/ezrun-35a-...tem-combo.html

If its only for your little brother practicing and getting used to the car, you don't need to be blowing big bucks on batteries. 40 c rate or something like that should be enough. Better to get a few middle class batteries than only one really good one. I'm sure your lil bro is more concerned about just racing the car and not getting every ounce of performance out of it.

I'm not sure you understand how little amount of power you need to actually
"spin the tyres".

Drifting is done with plastic tyres that offer very little grip. It's like driving on ice. The 13T hobbywing system you have is more then enough power. And by the way, the videos you linked are not using the same motor as you. The system you've picked is what we use here for a control setup for mini racing. The 13T 3000KV motor with the 35a ESC.

I have 2 of these systems, and both are running on 25c batteries. Specifically Gens Ace 25c 4000mah stick packs, which will fit in your TL01 perfectly (they are the same size as NIMH packs). You can grab them from hobbypartz for about $20 each.

You dont need anything special for it. Those batteries above can put out up to 100a if needed. You 35a speedie wont go near that.

Turn up the punch and timing all the way (using the program card), and gear it at something like 5.0 FDR (you may need the fast gear set). Check the motor temps regularly, say at 1 minute, 2 minutes and 4 minutes the first time around. See how hot it gets. A temp gun is ideal, but if you don't have one, you should be able to hold your finger on the motor for a few seconds without burning yourself. The max you want to get to is 70 deg C (160 deg F). And I mean max. For longer life try to keep it more in the 50 deg C (120 deg F) range.

Take a lipo 2s 5000mah at least 30c for your car and motor/esc combo.
