    Just picked up a Kraton 8S, need battery recommendations!

    Hi fellas! So with the help of this forum, I made my decision between the Losi DBXL-E 2.0 and the Kraton 8S. My main deciding factors were the input from all of you and also the countless videos of watching DBXL's rolling/flipping over when at speed. Now, I still haven't ruled out...

    I just got an Arrma Granite and on the first run the car suddenly stopped and i noticed the ESC was blinking red. I had been using it for about 15 mins and assumed the battery just died. This is my first Arrma and on my Traxxas cars they don't suddenly stop when the battery dies since they are...

    Battery Quality, Best Choice

    All my lipo batteries, both 2s and 3s, are venom batteries. I'm wondering if that's a good choice? They work great and have been durable but I'm wondering if I'm paying for the name so to speak? I jump my vehicles constantly and run them hard. Also does the c rating really matter? My 100c...

    Portable charging solution

    Out of boredom today I decided to make a portable lipo charger, you know, in the event your RC doesn't break down before you run all your lipo's. I have an abundance of Milwaukee m18 18v batteries, and I 3d printed a power adapter (or buy one off of Amazon for $15). Works quite well, I can...

    How many packs do you run a day?

    Lately if I have the time, I go through three packs a day [3S 5200]. One in the morning, one in the afternoon, and one in the evening. I alternate between my two vehicles with each pack. How about you?

    Senton 2s or 3s

    I'm just curious, obviously most people have more than one battery but do you have a 2s and 3s and what's the reason for each. Of course the 3s is faster but should I have 2 or 3 3s packs or throw a 2s in the mix?

    NEWBIE Senton 4x4 3S BLX Battery Suggestion?

    I'm sure this has been asked 100 time, so let me apologize now. Instead of fixing 10+ year-old cars that were given to us, we've decided to go new with the Senton 4x4 3s BLX. It should be here on Monday. Obviously, we'll need a battery & charger setup. I don't like dirt cheap garbage, but we...

    Charging a LiPo w/o balance?

    The balance port came off the wires on my hrb 4S 5000mah LiPo and I was wondering how big of a deal it is? My charger has a mode that’s just LiPo charging instead of LiPo balance charge but is it going to ruin the battery? And if so is there a way to put it back on without soldering? Thanks in...

    Battery hard case. Anyone tried these?

    Has anyone tried these reusable battery hard cases? I noticed my 3s softy got a little damaged at one end, likely from a hard nose landing. Then I came across this on eBay. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.com.au/ulk/itm/123475052550
