    SPC 2s 20c/8000mah vs SPC 2s 30C/6000mah

    Which SPC 2s do you prefer in your ERBE's?

    http://www.specpointbatteries.com/in...?productID=129

    or

    http://www.specpointbatteries.com/in...p?productID=61

    I'm leaning more towards the 30c/6000mah because of the 180 amp draw.
    ThanX in advance

    Option 3) 2S Smc 8000 28c = 224 amps. a good 45 min of run time.. I like my 8000 good batt..
    Or the 9000, prob is a good choice too.
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    Thanks for the reply

    just curious though, why is there an 8000mah and 9000mah model when there is only a 2$ difference? I imagine everyone would go for the 9000mah at that point.

    They've been adjusting prices lately, could just be some overlap. I have the SMC 9000's , SPC 8000's, and the 6000's. The 9000's perform the best, but are heavy , and they are just slightly better then the 8000's which perform better then the 6000's. All said and done the SPC 8000 is my favorite pack for the Erevo. Can't touch it for the price.

    So the SMC 9000's 252 amps performance is only slightly better than the SPC 8000's 160 amps? I just want to be sure so I can make an informed purchase and get the best bang for my buck. (Although I don't mind spending a little more for the SMC or another high quality battery as long as the price is reasonable)

    As far as Speed and punch, IMO, yes. But the 9000 leaves more leaway in it's spec's.

    Seems there is a red 8000(20c) for $60 with 160 amps.
    And a green 8000(28c) for $82 with 224 amps.

    Decisions decisions!!!

    For the 9000, do you have to remove the spring from inside the battery bay since the SMC 9000 is 28mm tall and the bay is 30mm tall?...I imagine that's cutting it close...seems like the SMC 8000 at 24mm is an easier fit.

    Yes, the spacer's have to be removed, and it's almost a must to dremel the spot where the wires exit the bays.

    They are both good. I have not tried the SMC's. I'm sure the extra punch of the 28C SMC's would be nice, but am likewise positive that it's not really needed. Then again, what in this hobby really IS needed? I think I enjoy the extra runtime of the SPC 8000s more than the extra punch of the 6000s. If I need more power, I'll simply step into a few 3S packs.
    Spacers need to be removed for the SPC 8000s too or the chassis will bulge.

    Yup, my first Lipo experience was when I plugged a Dynamite 3S 25c/5300mah into my Pede 4x4 a couple months ago...imagine the shock on my face when I yanked the trigger ... my legs got pelted with rocks, pebbles and dirt, it was a blast!
