How come these packs do not use 5mm bullet connectors?

Currently 5mm isn't the standard with the manufacturer, that is all. Possibly it will be available in future product lines from Sunpadow

Depends upon the surface. The higher the grip, often the smaller the battery to keep the car flatter.

5300 ok for Can-Am stock
6000 high grip
8400 "big sticks" are the old go-to for stock and super stock

Really 8400 for stock / superstock ? Wouldn't that be a bit too heavy for that application ? The European drivers suggest 6000 for that purpose .

For 6m roar national event racing there is a big voltage difference between 4m30s and 6m10s when you run 6k vs 8400

IR between 6k and 8400?
I don't see this as the challenge. Have 0.3v more at end of the run is much bigger...

Was thinking of trying the 6000 for Canam TC and USGT (sometimes Canam/sometimes 21.5)

I usually try to run the same battery size to make things easier. Or is that thinking hurting me?


Might pickup a shorty for the FWD while Iím at it (could even try that in the tc)

6k indoors is more than enough for Can-Am. With Can-Am you can also get away with the 5300 as the amp draw is much lower over the 5/6m run.

21.5 could go to any of the three options - 5300, 6k, 8400.

You can cycle them however you like... But when you pull Batts down to 3.0v it really hurts them.

All of my best runs has been a new stick in qual 1. Charging at 20a. Never getting hotter than 90f on the surface.

Heating is much safer than high amp discharge/charge

I only pull mine down to 3.70v at 20amp discharge, charge usually at 13amps
