    ******* Lipo

    Can some tell me if these are good lipo batteries. They are a great price and I have heard mixed reviews, but I have had it will a lot of the other batteries. MaxAmps is tooo expensive for bashing, and most of the others are too expensive. I want a decent battery for bashing and a quick race at the local track.

    maxamps are overpriced rubbish IMO and ******* are cheap and not bad but check these batteries that are designed for heli flight offer insane discharge rates and are a direct fit

    Just remember, if something happens to go wrong, you're totally out of luck as far as customer service goes...

    Have you actually tested the discharge rates match what is advertised ?

    Love to see a 300 amp discharge graph


    5000mah ******* 40c's (2s - 4s) work for me

    If I was in the States I would be using Gensace 40c packs from Hobbypartz

    that is all i use in 2s and 3s both are 30c constant and 40c burst, mine are soft packs not hard cased but love them and have never had problems yet. I race and bash quite a bit and this will be the battery that i continue to purchase, they stay balanced very well also.

    I agree totally. I use their 5000mah 2s hardcase and 4s 3000mah 4s softcase.
    I would say STAY AWAY FROM GOT2GORC. I have had bad dealings with them. 2 Of my friends have his products. Friend one has his MERV. It came with a striped diff, and he denied it. But he did say that he test drove them. Another friend has his lipos. After a year of use(about once per week) they are too puffy to fit in the battery compartment.

    Ya but trashing a $25 ($30 with shipping) is better than trashing a $100 pack. If your bashing a waterproof truck no manufacturer that I know of will give you a refund or exchange, and who cares what brand name the pack is? Does it work?

    I have 2 ******* & they've been great thus far. I was even able to bring one back from the dead (drained it too much) and it still goes strong.

    I'm not impressed with my pack from got2gorc either. It came with the balance tap wires loose. ******* or gens ace are my favorites. Both offer good performance and a good price.

    I love my ******* lipos they work great, and I also have two blue lipos I got from nitrorcx and they work awesome as well. I havent had any trouble with any of the four packs and only have a little over a hundred bucks in all four. I'd be lucky to get one name brand lipo for that price.
