Wrong again !!! We concluded that more testing needs to be done with the lower weight packs , since not too many racers run them or even own them.... I own both types of packs and I prefer the light ones... Only BERT closes the threads ..lol.....

Well I ran the team scream 5000 vta pack in my 17.5 touring car today with really good results the battery weighs 286grams. I wrote an official report under the team scream thread in the company section.

why do we need more testing ??

A 6000 MAH battery will bring most cars to the legal limit. Whats the point of running a 200g battery if you have to add 100g of lead to make the car legal.

its just dead weight..

My Yokomo only has 35g of weight added with the new LRP 6000 lipo's to make it legal, it comes in at 1385 but I can choose where I want the 35g. And I am not getting any drop off, so what's the point of running a 200g battery ?

You can always set up your account to block out all the annoying people on rctech you know. As such I only see this unless someone quotes him.

This message is hidden because bertrandsv87 is on your ignore list.

Back to batteries. Anything over 6000 mah with a high c rating is going to do the trick. I'm running smc at the moment and will not be bothering with the 7200 packs next time around as I feel I will get better balance and equal performance out of their 6500 packs.

What weight limit are you running at? Are you saying your car is 1385 and you have to add 35g to make 1420g? Aarcmcc rule 9.5.6 states limit is 1380g. Maybe I got your post confused. If so ignore this and carry on

As in my car weighs 1385g with 35g of lead added to bring it up to the weight limit. 30g of lead up front helps with turn in on a DB7.

They are one of the best lipos money can buy.
that I didnt know and thanks for the info. But still, switching from IP to Orca 2 years ago was the best decision I made in terms of batteries.

Switching from old batteries to new batteries is often a good decision even if they are from the same manufacture.

There was a huge jump in performance awhile back but the technology has now been pushed to its limits. Somewhat the standard evolution, starts with small improvements then rapid improvements finally tapering off to minimal improvements with each new generation.

Thanks, now the question would be - which IP battery is equivalent to the ORCA Infinite 7500mah 90C?

Any info on this would be greatly appreciated
