I just got three of the 30C Tenergy 3s5000 lipos...man, these things are HUGE! They *barely* fit in the battery tray. I actually was going to hog out the tray compartment towards the rear to give access to the wires so the battery could be pushed down all the way.
Then I realized this morning that if I put the packs with the wire side towards the front of the car, the battery compartment is lower there and I wouldn't have to do a mod. DUH!
I am under the impression that the recommended 19t pinion is not a good option the the stock spur gear. Can someone suggest another size pinion that could give me decent top end and not overheat my system too quickly?
Also, where do you guys buy your parts, both stock and aftermarket? My lhs carries a dismal selection and I just want to place a big order.
I was thinking of getting a esc and motor fan. I've seen some from rcmart. Any suggestions? What run time will I get out of these batteries if I'm using the two fans with these lipos?
Thanks in advance for your help!
