View Full Version : Lipo questions!
01-01-2012, 10:23 PM
looking for good 2s lipos for a 4x4 Slash with Traxxas connections already on, or the best alternative.
You need to find a lipo battery pack that has plug receptacles in the case itself. I don't think it'll work with the banana plugs. That same website you mention has that type of battery.
Also, when the moderators find your link to that website they'll hunt it down and kill it. :p

You don't need a pack with the plug receptacles in the pack. I run all "off brand" packs that are hard wired and soft case. Just make sure you swap out the plugs on the battery to match your esc and charger. From my experience many batteries come with the banana plus pre installed. All you gotta do is snip those off one at a time as you solder your new plugs on.
I like 5000mAh or lager packs for run time. I would go no less then a 20c pack of a 5000mAh capacity. You need to be able to feed the esc. Find the amps your esc is capable of and try to match or exceed those in your pack. You can find the pack amperage discharge rare by multiplying the C rating by the amp hours of the capacity. For example; 20c x 5000mAh is 100amps. ( 20c x 5Ah ).
Check out SPC's $28 packs. Come with trx connectors, awesome packs, awesome company.

Thank you guys for the input, very helpful. @ deerhurst I will be running 30c! Thanks for the tips. @ rag6 I just looked at the SPC batteries, do you think 25C rating is enough for the Slash brushless system? Also one more question, how do you guys protect your steering servo?
Yes 25 c is enough. If you like, you can get an erbe servo guard. Just a slight trim and it works. dcsally just did a thread on the mod.

Okay great! SPC it is, really appreciate your help. I'll go take a look at that thread.
Okay, i looked over dscally's thread and he recommended it for the 2wd Slash, is it still a direct fit for the 4wd? And also i see lots of people running 2wd slashes. Why is that? Do some just prefer 2wd?
