Dude, not that it's any of my business but you are either a very wealthy person or a heavily indebted person.

Lmao!! Thanks for the compliment! But tbh i was in debt $15k from my school loan about 15yrs ago. Ever since then i paid my debts, everything i do or buy gets charge and paid within 2-3 days, works better for me, I don't buy anything not unless i have Cash for it. Worst thing anyone can do is charge it and let it max out.
I hate to see those kinda situation to others.

Im just a filipino guy 32yrs old
Owns 4 condos in philippines
2 beauty salons
I have a tire business here in Nj selling used tires in ebay
And I work in the union for my benefits.
That should sum it up.
I have 2 full time Race cars
F10 M5 bmw 1000hp
Gtr 1300hp
As my racing cars

I do pay my habbits on credit card but everything gets paid same week just to accumulate points.

Dude has what looks like a Porsche 911 GT2 RS and Ferrari F430 in his driveway, I'm willing to bet he has some deep pockets.
Its a GT3Rs and Ferrari 458.
Thanks.

Thanks man!!! Hard work. I sleep 5hrs a night. Im always working or working on investment in philippines aka time difference.

In another thread you said that you had 8s batteries, was that a typo and you meant 4s? If not, what brand are your 8s batteries? Also, let me know how you like the hobbywing max 5 esc. I am debating upon getting that for one of my other cars.

Quick question guys. When installing the outcast battery tray in the Kraton do the screws that you take off the Kraton work for the outcast battery tray?

Im asking becuase i ordered the outcast battery tray, mud gaurds, side gaurds, and roll bar for the Outcast so i can put it all on my Kraton besides the roll bar. It was from a ebay vendor who strips trucks down and sell the parts. Kinda like a rc chop shop. But they don't come with the screws fro anything. Im asking becuase i had bought a outcast battery tray brand new and it came with screws. Have not put it on but am going to return it because it was 17 bucks and i got the outcast package of ebay for 23 shipped and came with everything. Was just curious if the screws would work?

Thanks

What was the name of the eBay seller? Would like to pick up those for my kraton too. That's a good deal.

Man i ordered the SMC 9200mah 6s lipo and it is hard to get into the outcast battery tray. They battery tray bows outward when i jam it in there. I wish i would have known this, someone on this forum told me it would fit. Kinda a bummer since i paid 160 plus 12 bucks to ship. It fits perfect in my Kraton battery tray but i did the swap to the outcast battery tray becuase it first 2 battery stacked way better, holds them in place.

Oh well i geuss i will just have to cram it in there, no way im not using it...lol

almost about $2k in less than 45 days just in batteries, lol
my suggestion base on my experience and type of cars.

I only have
slash 4x4 to xt90 connectors
kraton
stampede to xt90 connectors
dbxle to xt90 connectors

I have dedicated batteries for kraton which is the 2 pairs taped together 6700's and 1x 9200
(I love the 9200 tbh which I just recently got, lasts longer about 20 more mins 6700's on full hard play time, and it only take 1 outlet on my quad vs 2 outlet)
the 6700's are good as well don't get me wrong, only difference is play time same punch 90c on both but 6700 u will get about 30-40min on them I get about 45-50 on the 9200's and that good for me.

if I would get another battery of 9200? yes I would!




once 1st time charge Dan said from SMC u get a little after 1st time full charge and after that, it never puff again. he said once charge settles but yes I ihave been running these batteries 3-6x mon-Friday and weekends all day no problems!!!
danny from smc is a good guy and does everything right by his Customers!!...would highly recommend as you can see I ONLY buy his quality products

on weekends I ran all day or try to so I need as much batteries as possible, lol


Hey so you said your 6s 9200 mah fits in your Kraton with the outcast battery tray ?? Or do you still have the original Kraton tray ???

Such a big & heavy battery adds a lot of strain to shocks, chassis, drivetrain...
Tons of guys run those batteries without issues, the weight of the battery doesn't matter much for bashing.

Now trying to run that battery in like a 1/10 scale buggy or a 1/18 scale rc, yes the weight will put strain on everything.
