can anyone clarify
i am currently running stock 7 cell nimh 8.4 volts...and the car has X amount of power and X amount of speed
what is going to happen if i run a 2S lipo more speed more power? Is it true that a 2S is only 7.2 volts?
thanks so much thinking about switching from nimh to lipo
First its 7.4 volts =D
I got a 2s lipo and noticed it is faster than stock included 7 cell, same top speed as good quality 7 cell. But did better wheelies and had better handling due to the much lighter weight. It it only 7.4 volts but has the same fresh off the charger kick to the second LVC kicks in so it is actually in a way faster than the 7 cell after the 7 cell is half dead.
So I taped my hamster to the Pede..
A 2s lipo comes of the charger ready to run at 8.4v 7.2 is the nominal voltage. when purchasing nimh batteries look for data about the individual cells, such as the actual cell voltage the higher the better. also make sure the internal resistance is relatively low compared to other batteries. Also make sure that all 7 cells are close spec wise, this helps the battery charge and discharge evenly, a pack with unmatched cells can either heat up excessively and burn out in maybe half the charge cycles, or it can be a dud from the get go. If the manufacturer doesnt even list these specs, then move on.
Man i need more than 50 characters.
Unsure about what stampede you are talking about but if its the 4x4 VXL then it most certainly is 8.4 volts.
Current: Pede 4x4 VXL
Old & Stolen: Nitro RS4 3
4.20v = 100%
4.03v = 76%
3.86v = 52%
3.83v = 42%
3.79v = 30%
3.70v = 11%
3.6?v = 0%
Capacity below 3.7v "resting" is not usable, it's where the battery voltage dump begins.
