It's the power supply you sell.

I have them right now, actually updated the inventory before you had placed your orders.

If you select ground shipping again it will be right on the money for the combined shipping cost actually.

JRH, is it ok to run my Mamba Max at 6.6 volts? How about with a 5700 motor?

Yeah, it will be ok. The MM will work fine, but the motor will be kinda sluggish unless you run two parallel a123 packs to allow it to have some amp draw to work with. I would run 4s a123 instead.

Next question? Can I take apart A123 packs and solder them back together? Or do I need to do something special?

I ran the 5700 at 6.6 this morning, more than enough for my needs right now!

Im sure you can take it apart, I don't know if the cells will be solderable though. I have read that they damage easy with direct soldering.

John, I'm looking to upgrade my Hustler Super for next season and I'd appreciate hearing your thoughts on this.

I currently run a Novak Super Duty, Hi Tec 5645's, Integy 55's, and a TQ3 mod all powered by a Max Amps 2s3p 3300 lipo.

I'm looking to upgrade to this, running the same Max Amps lipo:

Mamba Max ESC
Integy V11 55's or 65's w/ 8 tooth pinions
Hi Tec 5955TG's
Older DX3 Tx or TQ3 mod

Will my lipo power this set up efficiently, and might you have any suggestions for me? I am limited by budget to run only 1 ESC and I really dig the Integy brushed motors. Thanks for your time.

Your lipo should do the task no problem. I would suggest the v11 55t. I would also suggest a Castle BEC for your steering duty.

So if the 0606I does not come with output leads then what all do you need to buy with it to charge lipos and cells? I would like to buy all of it at once..

4mm bullit plugs, wire, and your choice of battery connector. I'm just gonna throw that stuff in for anybody who buys the charger anyway, so don't sweat it at this point. Somebody would look over that point and be very dissapointed when they got the charger.

Do I really need to answer this? If they say do not do it, don't do it.

Which balance plug? A factory a123?
