How many continuous amps my Fazon ecu can take. Thinking about getting maxamp 6000mgh 150c. It specs for 970 continuous amps. The 100c is 600amp. Venom 100c is 500amp so I guess with two 3s that's times 2.

Your esc can handle 150amps.10 gauge wire can handle 150amps for a very short time,at 500 amps the wire would melt, battery internal cell conections are soldered together would also seperate.

Some someone is lied. Becuse venom says there 50c puts a continuous 250 with a 500 amp burst and I drive my poop hard. That's one e lipo and I'm running two 3s 50c. I don't understand. So me getting maxamp wit a 975amd discharge is a waist or I'm missing something? What are u running

2 3s 50c packs =1 6s 50c packs.My best batterys are Smc 70c, my other batterys are similar to yours, rated at 50c ( more like 30c), they get hot( over120f) which leads to puffing, short life, poor performance.I'm running a 4092/1730kv motor in my Kraton and it's pretty fast but really puts the hurt to my 50c batterys!
The guys doing speed runs with the Typhon (140 mph) have their esc's catch fire!

The ESC will only pull as many amps as it needs. So if u have a 250 amp battery the ESC will only draw what it's needs. Which would rarely be 250 amps.

And about the max amp batteries. If u do your homework you will find they are a waste of money and the numbers are highly fudged

So u say smc is the way. Better than venom and maxamp. And I can get 70 plus out my fazon. I threw that last part in hoping u will say yes lol if so I'll go with the SMC150c. I already have the venom 50cs

I don't own a fazon so I can't say yes to 70 lol. I actually just bought 4 new smc to give them a try. Do I say they are better than venom, no I have had venom lipos last for years and by years I mean 4 and 5 years and still balance perfect to this day. As far as better than max amps, I would say yes they are. I will personally never buy a max amps

OK now it's a toss up between venom and smc. But the price is tempting but I learned a long time ago u get what u pay for

Let's hope performance is there. So u never ran them? I thought u already knew
Nope I was wanting to buy some more SPC but they went out of the lipo game. So I jumped for the smc solely based off of there forum reviews.

Alot of the guys on the Traxxas forum recommend the smc as well. They can't be bad. They test them all and put a sticker inside the box of the total voltage and individual cell voltage

Lol idk know how the hell he see and drive that thing
I have always wondered the same thing, some of these ppl have to run these from so far away it's amazing. One thing I can say is make sure there is noone standing in the way before running a car at these speeds
