    lipo question

    Im new to lipos and i just got 2 traxxas 2c 2200 mah and i was wondering if its common for lipos to be slower than nimh batteries first charge. They wer quite slow, my friends e maxx could keep up at 3/4th charge. Any help would be
    appreciated.

    What do you mean? Speed wise?
    After a few charges they do get stronger
    What nimh were your running before and on the e maxx do you mean 3/4 throttle?
    What gearing? Running parallel or series

    Yes speed wise. Running in parallel, im using stock gearing, previous runs were with traxxas series 1 in parallel he had 3/4 charged stock
    batteries.

    Fully charged nimh have more voltage which equals more speed but after a few runs power will drop off and lipos will keep going strong
    Plus they will have more punch
