Trackpower rocks!

Yup it has a hard case, and in the most recent enduro I entered (running 13.5 BL) got 25 minutes at full power, with no fade, then my radio (Nomadio sensor -which monitors the packs voltage) started beeping at me to notify that its voltage was starting to drop. I havnt got a balancer yet as the cells still display the same voltage, but may get one in the future.

During a 5 min race, the lowest the packs voltage drops is to about 7.3v. it varies between 7.3 to 7.5 depending on track and gearing.

Ive had an orion aswel, cant fault it either, both are exactly the same dimentions, and fit the Jrxs-R perfectly.

would it last you 4 races? probably, but it would still be better to top it up between races.

1 pack, 6 races per day, no equalising or discharging ...... pure bliss
