    Question about lipo

    I have a 2s lipo in my 1/16 rally vxl and it gets a little puffy after running. My question is will it be ok to continue to use and charge this battery or should I discard of it? It doesn't balloon up or anything crazy but it is noticeably puffy to the touch after use.

    I would not continue using it.
    It sounds like it is not up to the task of powering your Rally... I suggest SPC packs as they have been proven to be a great and yet affordable pack.

    Here is a link to SPC:

    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I run all SPC lipos, they have a discharge rate of 50C

    Sounds to me like you are stressing out your lipos.. Get some SPC 's and call it a day

    Ps: I ride Specialized too!
