Default New batteries for modified, which currently choose?

Until now I used the battery LRP 6900 50-100C, but I have to buy new ones. So what's the best battery you choose to modified, intellect \ protek \ Dualsky \ LRP \ nVision what to look for, the more the capacity of the value of C.
I know that was a lot of topics, but most of it is already old and there is no reference to today's technology manufacturers so please help.

I have the new(er) LRP 6000 2s (#430211) and 6600 1s (#430212) packs inbound to use later this year at a larger race in Florida, for whatever that might be worth. Regardless of my affiliation with LRP, I really like their stuff and have had great luck with their packs.

My LRP batteries puffed after 3 runs, but they still have less internal resistance than the Intellects. Only my personal experience

+ the sticker gets loose

Lrp batteries are poop.... they will puff up and swell. The first time you discharge it. And running mod it will swell after 3 runs whether u discharge it or not. Honestly theyre not good. They hate being brought down with high amp draw

I like the IP batteries, but I have a Team EAM 6500 mah battery that's 2 years old, and even my strongest mod motors can't kill it.

LRPs are poop - even the stock racers see significant swelling after a few cycles.

Is this with recent LRP packs or with older ones? I have several of the 6900 1s packs and the 7200 2s packs and they have absolutely no swell/puff whatsoever. My 1s packs are used for mod 12th indoors, and the 2s packs are used for modified sedan outdoors (90+ degrees ambient with a 4.5T motor.)

I always balance charge and I don't run for more than the normal runtime (six minutes for sedan, eight for 12th.) I have been using them for about 4 months now and they have a lot more than three runs on them

Nope, I have never been too worried about pack numbers when running mod.

Yes I guess that's true. I just know the LRP packs I had on the first cycle low internals were high run time was low average voltage was low. It just didn't seem like quality cells. Maybe you got some good ones haha

Pro Amps 6000 60c are a battery to consider as well. I know a lot of runners using them in MOD TC. I've been using them in stock for 8 months and no one sign of puff and low IR.

The silverback batteries are also very good.
I think the same as orca, but less $$$.
Now tonisport is also importing them.

Last time i sold a nosram battery in my shop, and the battery was already puffed before use. My own nosram battery's i'm using already 1,5 year in modified, and they aren't puffed.

It's somethimes a gamble to buy batteries. Intellect batteries are the same, some puff some don't.
