Seems like the trend in mod is to run lighter, lower capacity batteries to help balance the cars better. I've been running the SMC 6000's only charged to 8.2v and mod has become significantly more enjoyable.

I've noticed that too. Nobody really running super high capacity anymore.

BTW, syndrome, do you see your SMC 6000 packs puff up a bit? I had a set of 7200s that puffed on the first run, but SMC said its perfectly normal bc they use low profile cases. Just wondering if the same thing happens on their 6000 packs.

I personally think that batteries puffing should never be normal. I think it only happens when vendors get ambitious.

I put 30+ mod runs on my SMC 6000s today, most over 6 minutes with no signs of puffing. Only charging them to 8.2v. So far they seem like great packs.

No point to pay more buy what is available for the cheapest price.

Talking about batteries on the EFRA 2014 list
CS, intellect, trackpower, proteck, XXL batteries Complete same case
Orion and fullymax complete same case
Orca and silverback complete the same

Personally i never had problems with my Nosram, CS or nvision. Some people had intellect batteries puffing after 2 charges.
Never seen a orca or silverback battery puff.

Only problem with the new batteries are the 5mm plugs, if you use your old 4mm packs to go training
