Default 4S 5250 or 6500 Hard Case??

I'm just converting over my MBX5R and trying to decide between the lighter 5250 and the longer run time of the 6500.......

What is everyone using (Maxamps only please....I don't want to hear about other manufactures) for their 1/8 buggies?

i have both and notice the extra weight in my rc8. its def more nose heavy over jumps with the 6500...but that said, its a bit faster and slightly longer lasting.
personlly i like the 5250 just based on weight alone. the lawndarting is causing more breakage with the heavier pack.

Another way I look at it is track type. What I mean is if you have a fairly smooth track with not a lot of huge air run a heavier pack which gives you a bit more bite in the traction department. For those big air tracks that look like they are gonna to be hard on the chassis then I opt for a lighter pack like the 5250. Run times I see with the 5250 are 20 to 25 minutes and the 6500's 30 to 35. Gearing, Traction, and throttle usage will vary these times.

have you done the conversion yet? If not, you should give the caster racing conversion a look. This will get you really good balance on your car since is uses a saddle type setup with lipos. Jason himself ran the actual Fusion buggy the conversion is based on, and even with really porky packs it did really well. Saw this first hand.

Yeah I've already done the conversion. I'm using the RC product designs conversion with the eliterc motor mount. I've picked up a 5250 for now and will see how it runs, then I will think about either getting a 6500 or going with the saddle packs.
