Re: Rc Thread

I don't have any experience with lipos as I have only used nimh batteries in my rcs so far but I just found this that may be helpful.

http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=61957

What I would try first is to give the battery a full charge and check the voltage of the pack with a voltmeter. Supposedly if any of the Lipo cells are below 3 volts the cell is considered bad and the pack can be considered unbalanced.

you ran it too low, or forgot to unplug it when you turned the truck off im guessing. toss the battery and get a new one. Even if you do manage to bring it back to life it'll never be the same. If you want to be sure the charger is okay just plug another lipo into it, one you know is good, if it charges fine, theres your answer.

Re: Rc Thread

I put my big joe tires on my e revo today. Also changed the spur gear to a 62 tooth.

Anyone else here running an e revo with big joes ? If so what spur are you running ?

I am running the stock 3300 mah nimh batteries. This will be the first time I am trying it with the big joes and the 62 tooth spur. It had a 68 tooth spur (stock) when I got it.

Re: Rc Thread

It is a brushed e revo. Im thinking of getting lipos sometime. Im liking the approx half hour charge with the charger I have now for the nimh batteries. Not liking the short run time though.
