Why I love lipo.
« on: September 22, 2011, 05:14:41 PM »
Simply put: My 30 dollar Chinese lipo runs my Rustler for 40 minutes and never get's Below 11.5 volts. By the time the motor is cooled off the battery is fully charged. I run my favourite truck for 2 hours on a 40 dollar 4S battery. As for SC8e bashing I mean wow. I used to have so many Nimh. Now I just run one pack down going fast with soemthing. Then go kill another pack in a crawler and it lasts me all day without swapping batts. (I do use a lil 3S pack as back up so I don't have to carry my crawler out of the park)
So if your still on the fence just make the switch. Best move you will make.

I really loved how it made my rc really wake up! The duration thing is also a big plus.

Some fear the rumoured warnings.
Reality is anything you believe.
Nevermind testing the water, just jump in and enjoy the thrill!
If you know you're insane - you're not!  It's the REAL crazies that don't know.
Just be yourself.  Cuz if you're not, you're acting like someone else.

ya like don't confuse them with Wrigley's gum and try to unwrap and chew them?
There are no stupid questions, only that which remains unknown.

They are full of black chewy goodness though... Kind of like an Eatmore that's been out in the sun..  ;D
