I've always used one, bought it when I bought my Stampede. On a 5000 2s lipo I can go for over a half hour bashing around in my backyard, like bigboy said, if it helps prolong the life of your system...
Can you do the same on lipos or just when charging nimh?
Hey Pede, you have any pics around with those M2Ks on the 2.8s? I'm thinking of doing the same thing.
I really like the flat irons Apex.
I would go with the SMC battery linked above over the Maxamps. SPC sells the SMC also but is currently out of stock. I have two SPC 2s 5k packs and one 3s 5k and they keep me happy. Getting an 8k SPC...
When I got back into the hobby with a VXL this is what I did and I'm very happy I did. Tom over at SPC is very helpful, he'll answer any questions you have and gladly.
Go with the Duratrax Onyx 230. If at some point you need it for your lipos you have that option.
Edit: Here's a link Onyx 230
When I got my Slash I put in the brushless from my Stampede and threw in a 11.1 lipo and I can't hit top speed (23/86) without catching air. The Slash just slides for half a block on it's lid. :lol:...
Same here. :(
Hey John, thanks for your input! I was thinking about putting one of these motors in my sons Rustler........heading over to Tower right now.
Great job on the fades. I like the flames over the purple paint.
:lol: Hey did you know you can break 62mph in a Stampede on 9-cells. :lol: This guy has somehow been around for a while, and the claims just keep getting more and more preposterous. I wouldn't buy...
I would get the 7 cell packs. They are lighter, great power and I've read around here that the Titan won't last very long on 8 cells.
Sent you a PM.
I use the Blinky to balance during the charge and it's pretty much done balancing when the battery is done charging. The cells were out of balance when I got the battery but I ran it down about 50%,...
I know exactly what you mean. I just bought two spc 2s 5000's and one 3s 5000. I made a few passes (19/86) with a 3s, even with the thing flying by at half throttle I can punch it and flip the thing...
Hey thanks Thunderbutt. My son loves it when I do that, he thinks it's the coolest thing. I can almost do it every time, controlling the truck in the air to land on the front wheels and then punch it...
I run the Wolfpacks in a vxl stampede and it rips. SPC batteries (3 lipos on the way) are a better choice but I've had no problems with the wolfies. I'm getting a good 25min of run time on 3000mah...
I just score it with a hobby knife or razor blade and then bend it in and it breaks off.
I bought a Fabtech Slash on Monday at Hobby People (Lakewood California), they had two more I think.
Picked it up yesterday, bone stock. It's getting my Stampedes VXL-3s/3500 as soon as the MM/4600 gets here.
woops, forgot to post the link. Rustler Chassis Mod
The 5000 are 15c and the 8000 are 12c
I was thinking about the mention of using the old charger and logged back in to ask this very question.......I'll move out of your way now Zoom.
Welcome Starleak! :D
See what you started!?! :lol:
Anyway, same here......have you run them yet, we're waiting to hear how they're working out for ya.
