Hi, I'm getting a slash 2wd brushed for Xmas and soon a castle sidewinder SCT 3800kv system for it. I understand that it's better to run Lipo for this system so what's a good charger? I know SPC lipo's are very popular on here, may get one of those or a duratrax. I'm only gonna get a 2s for now Maybe a 3s later on. I know the traxxas Lipo charger is good. I don't wanna break the bank so any help with this would be great! (I would also like to charge NMiH battery's)

Since this is a Traxxas forum... Traxxas EZPeak Plus.
And I would stick with the SPC packs.
Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
Im charging 7600mAh 2S1P 30C lipos at 6amps with the hitec4x
They take around 90min but not hardly even getting warm?!#*!
(My stock Traxxas 3000 nimh get good and warm at 2.5amps and 45 mins.)
Im expecting some heat at the end of the charge with my lipos.
Also after ripping around the neighbourhood the nimh's are hot, but hardly any heat from the lipos.
Any suggestions for extra settings would be appreciated
I believe my charger is setup correctly

Lipo should never get hot during charging or use.If they do that is a problem

If you're gonna be stupid, you'd better be tough.
Ive never charged any batteries without a warmup, if only slight. These lipos are not even luke warm when charging/discharging. And runtime is about 45mins in training mode.
Ive read that ppl are getting 1.5 hours with 7500mah
