all the packs that I have are between 420-435 but I haven't gotten any new ones since the Reedy race so I don't know the runtime on the new packs.

Most of my packs are 425-430. I have a few 19 turn packs with some very high voltage and low IR's and lower runtime but it's not too critical for 19 turn.

So who here is going to the Novak race? I sent my registration in last week. I'll be running stock foam even though I'll get my asz handed to me. Maybe brushless if I can burrow a system. I also had to order some HQ cells last week.

guy's I can not stress enough on the importance of the way you stoe your batteries when not in use. Make sure you lay them flat in your battery case and have the case laying flat. Do not stand the case on it's end. don't let this happen to you!!!! click

So I take it you've figured out it was the batteries that started it?

Just to add a little note to that- DO NOT store hot cells in a battery case either! I had 8 packs blow up in a Trinity battery case about a year and a half ago because I put a hot pack in the case and the heat couldn't get out. It split the shrink wrap and shorted out the pack and eventually blew the pack and all the others in the case.

Nothing ended up being able to be salvaged? Damn. Offer is still open. I'm parked until the end of the year more than likely, if I've got anything you need, you know how get ahold of me. I was really glad to hear about Steve, Dan, and Tony stepping in to help you out.
