I've got a slew of HRB's Run time depends on your throttle use but I get decent times out of my hrbs I got nothing to complain about them

Only issue with SMC is there always out of stock so I never got to try there stuff.

@Brewcity414 I've never heard of HRB brand myself but if I'm given the choice of those three batteries I'm picking the SMC 5400mah battery all day long.
I thought that would be too much for the 3s blx 4x4 🤔 at least that's what I've been told.

I was of the belief that you should only get hard cases for RC cars.......was I miss lead?
I would say its more a personal choice, Hard case has the same internals as a soft pack just a hard case to protect it from damage in the event of a really bad rc crash and your battery gets punctured or something using soft..

I run mostly soft packs cuz i like to live on the edge :p Plus hard packs aren't always easy to find.

Two hard pack 2s and 4 soft pack 3s. I honestly never gave it any consideration, just what was available at the lhs when I was shopping for them. My first set of 3s Gens Ace soft packs are just over a year old, no puffing, balance plugs intact, and I've switched the connectors twice.

"Too much"? As in too big to fit? Or too much weight? The 5400 vs 4500 isn't a huge difference in weight, 4oz, but the larger one adds run time. The 5400 is 12mm taller.

I found a way to fit a SMC 3S2P 7200 in my stampede... had to get creative and use straps instead of the stock holder downer. Not sure how much room the granite has.

I made the 7200 packs out of some old 2S 7200 2S2P packs. Ended up being pretty tall.

LOL I did the same thing with my old stampede, cut the chassis and just threw on some velcrow straps to use my 7600's with it! :D

The battery is a supply, the ESC draws only what it needs. So long as the battery is the right voltage and fits, you can use it.

If you think of a water hose connected to a tank, voltage is the amount of pressure forcing water out and mah rating is the capacity of the tank.
Thanks for the analogy!
