Motor melting power....yep that would be a battery maker's dream ad campaign.. The only thing better would be using fired instead of fried.

This guy is such a tool, lmao.

Turbo Joe, you are correct, although I didn't really mean my analogy to get that technical

They should tell you that these batteries put out more volts before you buy them. Could save alot of people the pain of losing a motor.
You are 100% correct, there is a lot of miss information going around on the web and this forum:

Fact: The batteries put out out more voltage and YOU fried the motor by not running the correct gearing. Saying the batteris fried the motor is like saying that guns kill people or that pens make spelling mistakes!

Fact: Everywhere you read about these cells the number one thing discussed along with increased run time is increased voltage!

Fact: The batteries themselves tell you the voltage right on the labels!

I reckon the motor was probably on the point of dying anyway from being abused before. You want to avoid letting your motor getting so hot, either by changing the gearing, or just stopping every now and then. Envirojay, stop and listen to what EVERY other person is saying anyway, the battery is not the problem. The voltage increase is minimal (like 0.03v max).

Do you take care of your motor? when was the comm last skimmed? when did it last have new brushes? have you taken it apart to see what part of it has 'melted' or whatever?

Your statement backs up the claim that his batteries did, in fact, fry his motor. And that the battery matching company is responsible and should have given warning because their batteries require a change in gear ratios.

Of course that us ridiculous. The most likely scenario is that the motor would have fried regardless of which battery he was using - due to improper maintenance, or pure coincidence.

WHY has this post had so many replies--mine included --. This guy is just winding you all up. Anybody who runs a motor with vengance for 30 minutes with 4200's doesnt deserve a sensible reply. If you are posting that you have done this then , hey , you aint too bright.
Go buy a fishing rod!! (watch you dont poke yourelf in the eye)

I ran 2 5 min mains on one 3800 in offroad for fun... I saw one guy run a monster stock in a t4 offroad for 14 mins undergeared of course.. I have to say 30 mins would be a little out there...Theres really no reason for 4200 unless you have brushless or mod..

You can't get 30min of runtime out of the batteries so for you to think that let's me know that you too are a newbie

I still do not understand how you can run for 30 minutes with a 19t motor. When some people can't go 5 minutes with a 19t motor. This whole thread doesn't make sense.

If everyone told you that the battery pack fried your motor, will it make you feel better knowing for sure that you waisted 100$ on the new batteries. I don't understand what you want people to tell you. Everyone has given suggestions, and you completly ignore them. You don't just ignore them, you come up with your own solutionn to what is wrong. WELL IF YOU ARE SO SURE THAT THE BATTERY FRIED YOUR MOTOR, THAN WHY ARE YOU ASKING?

I dont know how many 4200 packs you have, but I have three 3600 packs, and will exchange batteries with you, I know they will probably fry all my motors, but I wont hold you responsible......

Gotta keep the analogies accurate. Octane doesn't make you go faster, it keeps fuel from preigniting. More octane would make a stock Civic go slower.

Batts have nothing to do with it. Its more like saying, after I filled up the motor in my Civic went bad. Doesn't have anything to do with the fact I haven't changed the oil in 40,000 miles....
