    Novak motor and MMP esc and lipo combo question

    Well im going to put a novak 5.5 550 can size and MMP in my slash 4x4 and then get the rally LCG chassis when it comes out.

    1. Whats a good size lipo to use for dirt bashing, like driving recklessly in baseball field type of dirt and some pavement geared 19/54, 19/52 and or 19/50.

    I currently have (2) 3s venom 5400mah 20c lipos. I want to move up to a higher C rating when i buy my lipos. Im looking at some Gens-Aces because they're cheap. For sure im going to buy 2 cause they are so cheap.

    I would go with the Gens Ace packs. Use mine to bash and race, very high quality packs for a great price.

    I had that same combination in both of my trucks for a bit. The Venom 3s 5400 works great! SPC 5400 50c will make you a happy man! I recently got one and I am really liking it

    It will run well at short course speeds of about 30-35mph with the specified gearing. The 5.5 550 is a 3700kV 800 watt motor spec says 3s max and going to 3s you will most likely have to gear it down.

    For 3s
    800watts/11.1V = 72 amps
    x 1.4 = 100 amps peak


    5400mAh = 5.4 amps
    100 amps peak/5.4 amps = 18.5C max discharge rate at peak.

    When I run mine, I either run 17/54 or 17/50. It uas plenty of power with the Venom 11.1v 5400 mah lipos. I believe they are a 40c max burst. The SPC 11.1v 5400mah is a 50c continuous and 100c burst. So that will have plenty odf power to make that motor dance! As with all of my motors, I run a heatsink with a single fan. Just good insurance! You should be happy with this motor combination

    so 2s geared 19/54 should be fine, especially with a 65-130c lipo it will give me a jump right?

    mabe if i want to go faster, i could go 25/50? on either 2s or 3s
