    It looks like those are too thick. They are a little expensive imo

    Does these deliver half of what they claim? Because if they do, they should do the trick!

    I watched a comparison video a while back on MaxPrice er Amps batteries.
    They performed no better than a $8 pack. As a matter of fact, the $8 pack ran longer and it was rated for less mAh.
    Unfortunately, there is no industry standard as to how to rate the discharge rate of packs. MaxAmps takes full advantage of this fact... the pack may be capable of 100C, but I imagine it is only for a split fraction of a second burst; no where near constant.

    SPC, on the other hand, honestly rates their packs... as does Traxxas and a few others. I would stick with the honest sellers/manufacturers/distributors over how MaxAmps operates.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Everything I have seen from any source but maxx amps agrees with the above post.

    I have the 35C version, and it is far too thick to fit in MERV battery compartment. But 45C 1100mAH fits. This brand battery is very punch, but almost all the LIPO I have puffed after a few runs.

    Sounds like you are abusing your packs!
    Properly used LiPo's do not puff...

    Then the question is...

    What is the ultimate 1/16 traxxas lipo battery?

    We should start a sticky thread or something so all new owners can get the best recommendations!

    And again... What is the ultimate lipo for 1/16 traxxas

    There is no single ultimate battery. Simply because some use 2S and some 3S while others use both.
    Anothing thing is that you need to know what is the most important aspect (which is not the same for everyone) like driving time, max amperage, price, etc.

    For 2S my choice is simple: SPC. I never found any better battery for that price. That price factor sadly doesn't count from a Dutch point of view, but that is not SPC's fault, but due to the idiot shipping costs.

    Yes there is. I understand your points. But.

    What is the best performing 3s battery for e-revo. Which can give the most amps? and combined with highest capacity preferably 1800mah +/- which battery fits that has the most punch and amps?

    I have ordered a previous version from this guy (the ones i bought was 45c)
    Now there is a new version, i think that might be the best traxxas 1/16 battery available.

    If I understood the article I was reading last night, a car will have a certain maximum full power draw and any battery that the C rating exceeds that draw is overkill. I assume there are lots of factors involved including gearing, after market motors, esc, servo, etc? So how would one go about determining what the max C rating battery needed to give the car everything it can do? Or do I misunderstand and a car will draw however much C is available?

    Any RC will only draw the amperage it needs... no more.
    Giving a target C rate is misleading... available amperage depends on at least two factors, not one.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Overkill is better than underkill/puffed/burned to the ground.

    I want to know which battery can deliver the most amps on 3s that fit inside the compartment.
    I am going to install 6s (2x 3s paralell) in my e-revo and use big block motor so i need something with much power as possible.

    You would need something to measure it. I have a Watt's up meter and an eagle tree e logger. It shows amps watts voltage drop etc...
    With taller gearing or bigger taller tires you will put more load on your system drawing more power same driving through tall grass

    Two 3S in parallel is still 3S.

    Actually I am using 3S 45C 1100mAH pack for my 1/16 summit with Hobbywing 70A stock motor. It puffed in the 2nd runs. I have another truck using Hobbywing 60A with 380vxl motor running Hyperion 35C 1600mAH 3S LIPO. Puffed a bit ...... I have other brand LIPO like Max Amp and ip LIPO. None of them puffed. I have asked this question to LHS guy, and surprisingly, the guy told me that it is normal. So I am fading out my Hyperion LIPO and switch to other brands. Personally I do not recommend Hyperion LIPO.
