upgraded to lipo from nimh 5000 nimh 5000 lipo 2s 5000 40c
You will gain a good performance boost and longer runtimes. Meaning the powerband is stronger from start of the pack till LVD/ LVC kicks in. Are you running the brushed Xl-5 or the brushless VXL-3S sytem or another aftermarket setup?
Traxxas XL-5 or VXL-3S:
Stage 1: 3.6v 50% Power
Stage 2: 3.3v Cuts Power
A little info on the Lipo pack you just picked up. mah x "c" = A, ex. 5000 mah x 40c = 200a. Not sure of the brand, but that pack should perform quite nice.
I know our SPC 5000 25c lipo's 3S and 2S run anywhere between 45 mins to an hour
God is good.
vxl system 3s and no run times like that
