    O Boy heheee..
    one more time.......
    MY BATTS:
    2S 9000 x 28C = 252,000 didide 1000 = 252 amps
    2S 8000 x 28C = 224,000 divide 1000 = 224 amps
    3S 5200 x 40C = 208,000 divide 1000 = 208 amps
    2S 4700 x 25C = 117,500 divide 1000 = 117.5 amps
    ^ Requires proper gearing^

    ( mah x c rating / 1000 = amps)

    Nope sorry on either (MA) From what has been posted on this forum & other forums (RC Monster) an ok batt but over priced & over rated on the C rating. Just buy a good mid price batt. If you want longer runs buy a higher mAh..

    I went on maxamps for a giggle to see what I could get for my erbe and they wanted $360 for two lipos 3s 5300mah I think for my truck, I was like i can buy another Traxxas machine for that price, but maybe if I mortgage my house I could afford to get some one day, but are they really that good? Mmmm what a topic hey

    Save the dough and get a Gen Ace, *******, SMC....but if you really want to spend the money. You can buy the brands I just mentioned and send me the difference compared to the Maxamps

    Honestly I wouldn't get either battery since I think their both overpriced, regardless on how they perform. I stick to SPC, Gens Ace, or Hyperion.
