    Please tell me if I will lose performance with 11.1volt ,4000 mah,3s1p,venom,1580,20c

    My wife picked up my lipo's for me today and the guy are gal sent her back 125 mile with these for my E-rev,brushless,5608 and the ends will not even mate up if I did decide to use them are should I just bite the bullet and swap them for your recommendations? All replies will be apprceciated.

    the erevo brushless comes with a mamba monster stock. it will run on 6s lipos so 2 of the batteries you have now.
    however, the battery pack you have is only 20c and i would say thats a bit low, if it was me i would rather have 30 or 40 c pack.
    if the plugs are different then oyu will have to swap them over. remember do only one wire at a time to avoid short circuits and a blaszing sparking fireworks display right infront of your face

    Amps are a bit light.

    But considering this implies you only have the stock packs now.... then no, you will not "lose performance" by going to 6s lipo.

    Terrible choice of lipos, you need much more like 30-40c 5000mah; I strongly recommend starting with a matching pair of 2s ( 7.4v ) lipos, then step up to a pair of 3s packs if you can handle the power without the truck flying to bits or constantly crashing or flipping.

    Here is you new extended manual, I recommend taking the time to read it:

    Erevo 101:

    Lipo, LVC, Brushless & Battery charger/charging guides & purchasing links:
    TUTORIALS

    Refer to this to setup the Mamba Monster ( MMM ) esc for maximum performance:

    3s 5200mah x 40c = 208,000 divide 1000 = 208 amps
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    Will It run? Yes. Will if be really fast? Yes. Will the lipos do okay? yes but they will not last as long as stronger lipos. And it wont be quite as fast as it would be with stronger lipos. But it will run

    Okay thanks to one and all for the replies on my battery dilema.I did not have the insider knowledge to buy any parts for my are my sons cars in the past until today.With that said I have run across a problem never had happen.We race a nitro slayer,slash vxl's and then this mammoth of mine that when I go to plug up the second baterry it arcs pretty bad kinda like when hot shotting a guy when his battery is dead and yours is not. I am powering transmitter first of course and then the batteries and receiver and lastly my cover but It always arcs. I was only able to find a 5400 in place of the 4000.Any suggestions would be great.Again thanks for all the speedy replies from last night.

    "Mammoth" meaning the E-Revo? The spark is normal and due to the capacitors of the Mamba Monster charging. 2x 3S gives a much bigger spark than 2x 2S. There's not much you can do about it.

    That's why I like my EC5 connectors- the spark stays inside the blue plastic housing as the metal bullets touch ( I'm kinda weary of electricity & sparks )...
