This is my first RC car and loving it!
I'm just curious with these Traxxas LiPo 3S 11.1V 8400mAh 25C battery's if a stock slash 4x4 with a parallel connector could run these or do i need to upgrade anything? Im thinking maybe fans or something but i don't really know.
I also have the IMAX b6ac charger for these batteries and i am worried that i will not charge the battery right and it will blow up on me, what is the optimal settings for charging these battery's
Get a temp gun to monitor motor temps I try to stay under 175. You need a charger that will balance charge lipo and storage charge for when the lipo is not used.
Yea im pretty sure that the IMAX b6ac can do that, and is that 175 Fahrenheit?
and so i can run those batteries in parallel?
You want to run 2 8400 mah 3s lipos in parallel? Why?
With 3s your temps will be higher and with a mah that high I don't see the point of running two in parallel.
I think you will be perfectly happy with one.
Just for longer run time..
with the mah available now you only need one battery at a time. Especially 3S
Okay, thankyou and another question what would you recommend for best charging, and battery life for this?
other than saying Traxxas in the fourm, we can't say...
