    Cool SPC 2s 8200mah 50c 7.4 Lipos.

    Hey guys, as some of my fellow Summiters know, the Spc 2s 8200 lipos have been out of stock for quite some time now. I've been trying to find out as much info as possible, as here is some of the emails I've received. This is the first one I got. I asked them when they where going to be back in stock... (before they updated the website)

    Hello,

    If all goes as we were last informed, these packs should arrive by mid
    March. This delay is due to new shipping regulations in Asian area that
    have significantly disrupted RC LiPo shipments. We are sorry for this delay
    and are doing our very best to get the packs here.

    Thank you.

    Tom


    This is the 2nd one after I asked if I could pre order them.


    Hello,

    We do not accept pre-orders because the arrival dates given to us by the
    factories are not always correct and we do not want to mislead the customers
    by telling them an exact date that may not be accurate. I hope you
    understand. However we will place your name on our waiting list and you
    will be notified as soon as the packs arrive. We are getting several
    hundred of them in so there will be plenty to go around.

    Thank you.

    Tom


    I've got to say, I'm impressed! I got the 2nd email only 10 min after I emailed them! Tom was really helpful!
    This is the best part:
    We are getting several
    hundred of them in so there will be plenty to go around
    .

    That makes me feel better! They normally come in shipments of 20, so I was worried that they'd be out of stock before I could order them.
    Just thought I'd share to help ease the waiting for every one else who wanted to know.

    Makes me feel LUCKY as the first time I attempted to buy them after hearing all the waiting tails, they where in stock and had the 2 that I wanted.
    Glad they are getting a bunch in this time around as they are great batteries and you can look forward to a run time around 45 min with it in LOW gear. But guess that will depend on whether you are a basher or a crawler !
    Endeavoring to persevere !

    I am on the waiting list for these, I wanna see what spc power is like with my brushless setup. I have 4 2s 5000mah gensace packs, but wouldn't mind a little extra power. I can vouch for spc's customer service also. I had to send it two 3s packs I had gotten for my rally. When they received them they were out of stock for replacement, Tom upgraded me to even better packs at cost. The new packs were so strong I needed a new motor to go with them

    Extension is very helpful,pretty much need one or a few, get a couple of the alarms,they are not expensive and it is always good to have a backups just in case.i have when I needed them three of them,

    Hook up a battery to one battery lead at a time and turn on the truck....whichever plug powers up you receiver is the BEC side. The battery on that plug will always drain faster because it runs your rx and all the servos.

    The balance tap extensions I got from eBay are weak and break where the male pins are soldered to the wires. Conversely, the extension I made myself is pretty robust. You may want to buy more than one extension for each LVA. And @ about $4 each, I'd suggest getting at least two LVAs.

    I really wanted to order those 8200 packs, but for short course they are just overkill and to heavy. I wanted to be part of the club

    yeah less then 24hrs and the 100 packs spc put online should be gone. Thats a hour left. I think. darn daylights saving time. and wolf slash I think we all just win by getting the spc packs. its nice to have a company that will go the extra mile any way they can. Traxxas always does.me.right too.
