Thank you
They're junk.

For me, LRP packs have been excellent. Look at what the A-main in the ETS uses, it can give you a direction on what to choose.

I have not had luck with LRP. Bought two high end packs and both had very high IR. I consider a good pack to be 1.5-.5 IR per cell, on my icharger. The LRP packs had 2.5-2.8 per cell.

I actually have 2 team Orion 3200mah 120c graphene lipos, and I think they work just fine. Super light, good punch. I can totally tell the power fading out during the run, but probably because it's a 3200mah

It's not a good thing if you can really feel a pack fading out during a run.

It really isn't, that's why I reserve them mostly for practices... wish I would have known better before buying them, would for sure purchased a bigger battery instead - another example of going cheap is almost never good

I wouldn't reserve them for practices either, just sell them. You want your practice setup to be close to, if not identical to your racing setup.

You are absolutely right, I know I need better batteries but just keep being a cheap bastard

I run Team Orion Carbon Pro 5800mah 110c Li-Po(s).
Been running them for over 3-months (13-runs). I haven't had any problems with these batteries so-far.

I just would like to see some-kind of a pro-test on these batteries.

Thanks for everyone's insite.

you know the existence of lrp lipos for modified and stock racing.
i still use my 3 year old lrp 8000 spec lipo and around 1.6 /cell.
my friend european champion use also lrp and saw 0.8 /cell on a hot day.

And as usual everyone is promoting their experience with as result no clear answer of a brand that sticks out....

Face it, as long you are no team driver getting batteries with selected cells, you as a normal consumer has to do with what you get. As someone says to get a model from brand X because he had a good battery there is no garantee if you buy one you get the same specs. Luck is a huge factor.

Totally agree with @dawgmeat, IP Lipos is the best.

Associated Reedy Wolfpack HV-liPo 7.6V 4200mAh 50C Shrt

Im thinking of buying this its right around the $50 price range new - and from what im told 30c would even be fine in the setup.
in any case as I understand after talking with people about this and reading is that the C rating on this has to do with discharge rates?

in any case is there some reason why this battery would NOT be good for racing aspect? I would like to ask twice before buying once wrong fully. Thanks in advance as always!
