Hey when i run my truck im running 2 venom 2C 2000mah with a Parallel connector for longer run time.
The other day i took my truck out for a run and the thing went flat in 10minutes. (normaly get easy 25min) Stops in its tracks, ESC is very slowly blinking red. So i thought it was low volt detection. when i got home i noticed on my charger the two batteries had different voltage left in them. So i just charged/balanced them again ready for the next run. On my next run the same thing happend, 10 minutes in and trucks stoped in its tracks. Slow red blink on esc. So instead of putting my second packs of batteries in, i disconnected the parallel connector to run the batteries one at a time. One battery was totaly flat where the other battery gave me 20 min run time.
So does anyone have a clue why one battery is getting drained more than the other? Ive run my truck with the Parallel connector for the last atleast 25 runs. Tho the last 8 runs ive run it with smaller wheels and 50/27 gearing, flipped tranny. The 1st time when this happend i also noticed that my center drive shaft area was hot as! maybe coz the batteries got hot and the heat spread to the rest of the chassis.
Also the 1st time it happend it also happend with my 2nd set of batteries, one had more voltage left in it than the other when i checked them at home. So i figure its not any of the batteries coz its happening to all of them?
Im tending to think my wheels and gearing might be running it hot and somehow thats doing something to my batteries. hum...?
