I called Dave at Sandy Flemings and he's got some Speed Passion Cirtix Combos coming in April. Anyone else looking for these should probably call him and reserve one as I don't think he's got too many coming.

As for lipos, Hobbypartz emailed me to say that they are out of stock on the batteries I ordered. So I cancelled the order. Fail.

Yeah HobbyPartz was fail for me too on my battery order...I decided to keep mine on order though as I don't need them for awhile yet.

Default Other Lipo brands beside Gens Ace?

Hi everyone,

Any suggestions for other good / good-value lipos besides the Gens Ace line?

Thanks in advance!

These came in the mail today. Looks like from Hong Kong. Pretty fast shipping all things considered. Also, FYI, Hobbypartz got a restock of the Gen Ace batteries. I ordered one yesterday not knowing my turnigy's would show up today. Maybe I can do a comparo later.

Cool...my Gens Ace batts came in a little while ago...finally!! Now just to find something to use them in since switching from TC to F1 and converting my F1 to shorty packs. I was planning on running 1/8th electric buggy but decided to put the money I was going to use for that into upgrades and support equipment for my 1/8th nitro buggy. Maybe I'll start running my SC10 again.

Default Gan Ace batteries ship very quickly

I got some 4S 40C 5000 mHa GEN ACE hard pack LIPOs from Hobbypartz. Very quick shipping. Happy with the quality of the case and the balance cable.

To balance my electric buggy, I just needed to put weights on the receiver cover. When I need to run lighter LIPO batteries, I switch to the stock receiver cover.

Default Turnigy Nanotech LIPO

The Turnigy Nanotech LIPOs are excellent. Cory just won the e-buggy a main at TRCC on June 3rd 2012 using two 2S Nanotech LIPO softpacks.

Default Shipping Nanotech LIPOs

If you order Turnigy Nanotech LIPOs, make sure to select SINGHA shipping to Hawaii and Alaska. It is much faster.

Default Hobbyking Customer Service Great

One of my Turnigy Nanotech batteries had an issue with the internal connections rendering it impossible to charge or discharge. Basically, when I plug it into the charger, it would just read "connection break".

I contacted Hobby King and started a work order. After one additional email from me showing pictures of the battery and the display from the charger, they credited me the full price of the battery. All within four days of initial contact. easy and no hassle. Didn't even have to return the defective battery. I read it's fixable, but I don't want to mess with it.

Anyway, just wanted to share. Great customer service at Hobbyking. oh and the lipos are very good...I can't tell the difference between the nanotechs and the Gens Ace.
