Default Matched packs for 540 racing???

Would a high voltage matched pack, say 1.19 volts still outperform a 1.17 pack in a 5 minute race using Tamiya RS540 stock motors? Just getting ready for TCS and need all the help I can get.

Default Well it should.....

(and I hope so because I have a matched pack arriving soon).

But that said I've seen unmatched 1400scr stick packs win over 3300s (all down to the driver) in 540 (silver can) racing. So long as it has plenty of punch over 5 min it probably doesn't matter.

I can get 6+ minutes at race gearing with 1500mah, so I figure you'd only need 3300 or bigger for longer punch duration. I wouldn't have some 3700 now if I wasn't going 1/12th.

Hey Dan,

yes yes and yes,

at the "Much More masters" on the weekend (540 class) I was running unmatched IB3600/1.17+ GP3300 packs and I was qualifying 2nd all four qualifiers and had a 3rd,2nd,2nd in the finals,

Brett who qualified all first and came first in two of the finals, was running fusion and Promatch 1.19+ GP packs,

we were both running FK05's, the same setup, same rollout and both our motors were pulling almost exactly the same ammout on the MM motor master, even our consistency was almost identical, the only difference was the batterys.

I am looking for 1.19 packs now,
