What are your guy's thoughts on SMC DV Extreme vs CNHL Parallel Series? They are about the same price. Has anyone on here tried them both?
It is looking like the Parallel Series is right with the SRD packs performance wise, but the SRD packs are 3x the price.

If the performance is within 1-2 percent and costs 1/3 the price that's a no brainer...
I'll probably be getting some parallel series packs.

where did you see that the performance was that close? I read that slow mike was getting some pretty good results but not sure if I saw any direct comparisons...

but 3x the price for 5% improvement pretty much sums up racing....

It's much the same with rocketry. The first 95% are easy. It's those last 5% that make the difference between low earth orbit and Campbell's tomato soup on fire.

Mike makes ALOT of his own packs,imagine he takes the best cells out of a few packs an makes his own....so what he does an what ya get from cnhl might be night an day diffrent...mike nows his $HIT,from his custom sodering I've seen on his escz,custom sized cnhl packs with what looks like 6awg wiring.the speeds he pulls are insane,an really helped open up the world to low voltage running.. I've had good success running the smc dv packs...if ya can fit it go for heaviest,most mah packs outa the ones you named..hell just buy both..lol

Finally brought the car back after a 120+ 4s run!!!
Ran 127 right before but put it in a ditch after I lost control on braking. Some idiot didn't tighten the motor slide down very good when he was putting the car back together last night.🤪
The 123 run was on cooling packs and a short run due to fear lol.

Next weekend if the weather holds out to what it currently says I will use the onyx pack for the first time.

After a little hiatus I’m ready to go again. Got the new 4080CM 2022kv installed along with a new turnbuckle for the servo horn. I know it doesn’t look centered but I wanted the angle to be 90 degrees coming off the horn. Now it gives equal throw from left to right. Geared 34P/31S for now. I’ll start off with 3s and 4s for some shakedowns.
