One battery vs two battery set up? Clod project.

Post by darrenbigfootfan » Tue Mar 24, 2015 5:13 pm

I have a question and wanted to get some opinions on it. I am going to run the evx-2 esc (LVD) with 21 turn Titan 550s on my project clod. I do not know which route to go pertaining to batteries. I was deciding between running one traxxas 11.1 volt 5000mAh 25C 3S Lipo vs running two Venom 7.4V 4500mAh 50C 2S Lipos. Which set up would be faster? Any advice would be greatly appreciated even if that is a recommendation for a different battery all together.. I am going to be running the truck in short bursts(drag racing). Freestyle I will most likely switch to a different battery. Thanks!

A pair of 2S batteries will be faster.... hands-down.
Not a fan of venom batteries. (I like SPC)
Perhaps consider using really small 2S batteries since you are doing short bursts?
(Like the ones for the traxxas minis)

Great topic!! I am also thinking about going with the same battery (7.4V 4500mAh 50C 2S). I looked at the SPC site (great prices), but it won't let you order 1 battery?? If someone could please clarify, I would appreciate it.

thanks.
