I used to run adapters for XT90 to traxxas, and then I ended up switching everything over to XT90 for better current flow and, I personally like the connector better and I think it's easier to solder, but then I switched everything over to XT150 as my current demands grew again.anyone using adapters for there lipos.?
Trust me I hear you. A couple of weeks ago I switched over 25 batteries and 7 cars to XT150 from XT90. I wouldn't think that adapters will ruin the truck or the batteries. I believe that traxxas uses those connectors on the new 8s xmaxx trucks so I would assume they have faith in those connectors handling high current loads. I myself just prefer to have all of my connectors changed to my highest needs, which is 150+ amps at 8s thus why I made the switch.Ya that's a lot of work I have 2 Xmaxx's and 8 6s batteries. Will the adapters ruin the truck or batteries
If you'd like to keep all your connectors the same all you'd have to do is solder on Traxxas connectors in place of the XT90s that come on the Outcast ESC, the only problem I foresee is that the 25C rating of those batteries may not jive well with the Outcast's electronics. Arrma recommends a minimum 35C discharge for the BLX 185 ESCs.I have just recently got back into the RC scene after several years. I Have a used Brushless E-Revo I recently purchased and a Traxxas unlimited desert racer. I am using Traxxas Id equipped Ez peak dual chargers with 2 Traxxas 3-cell 25C 5000MAH Auto Id Lipos in each vehicle. I Have a Aarma outcast on order. Can I use this same setup are am I going to have to change my batteries and charger. Any help would be greatly appreciated .
I wouldn't even waste my time with adapters, just adding more into the mix that is completely un-necessary.
Never have I heard any RC manufacture or ESC or battery manufacture claim changing the connectors will void your warranty - can you please share with me which company states that?I agree, however sometimes it is a necessity, i.e when you don't want to cut wires and solder another connector onto to a battery or esc, which will void the warranty. The XT90S is a real nice connector and I wish I had them on all my models
Of course. Then again their warranty is only for 30 days, after that if something goes wrong you gotta pay to replace. If I had to replace traxxas ESC or battery I wouldn't be picking them again and instead run something better... which is probably why my 4x4 Stampede has a Castle Creations ESC.Traxxas, of course.
