you need a flat pack, correct? Not sure if you have high voltage but if not I had success with the proTek LiFE pack. Usually Ran qualifiers on one pack and ran another for main. Break-in is a drag though. I donít run high voltage so not sure about lipo packs

Just got a LiFe pack, how many times did you cycle it for break-in?

I use the venom 7.4 5c 2s 2400ma LiPo flat packs. They work great and they are now over a year old in both cars, and yes i have the 6r radio tray for both my buggy and truggy.

A lot... Amain says to cycle the Protek 20 times before deep discharge. I cycled mine about 15 times never letting it get below 50% capacity before running in buggy. Always balance charge imo. The first I had puffed and I know it didn't get below the 33% capacity they warn about. Amain replaced the first one. I had about 20 cycles on the pack before I didn't worry about it

Can I know how do you cycle a LiFe battery? I never know that you need to do that. I just balance charge them till full and use it
