I ran nanotech 5600s with a tq side bullet as the jumper wire.
True i used those same 4100 35c packs in e-buggy all last season with no issues.

I don't think it's as necessary in e-buggy as it is in some classes (ie; 4wd sct). The efficiency is much higher with 4s setups than 2s so you can get by with lesser batteries. Just like i stated above how i did for a whole season and i am still using the same esc with no problems.

What shock oils would you reccomend for a good overall starting point? I only have ae oils and i've heard they differ a bit in viscosity compared to losi oils. Thanks.
